3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beautiful golden glow and exquisite aroma foretell a delight that doesn’t quite deliver. While the taste is solid, it doesn’t quite meet expectation. One is nice, but the second may not satisfy.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium, orange tinged gold with a smallish off white head. A really wonderful pine aroma, with the citrus hops nicely balancing the initial pine notes. Flavor parallels the aroma, though I wish it were more complex and longer lasting on the palate. Finish is clean with lingering hops and a touch of that piney citrus hanging around as well.
