3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ar: Zesty grapefruit, lemon, and pine - very bright.
Ap: Very light amber, clear - small off-white head with moderate-good retention and a ring and thin film of foam.
T: Clean, cracker-like malt - bitterness is high and clean - lemon and pine flavor - finish is cracker malt.
P: Light body with high carbonation, comes off as very thin, almost watery - finish is very dry.
O: This beer has a great hop nose, but between the ultra-clean malt profile and the very thin body, it just falls flat, overall.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden colored pour. Small white head that fades fast. Little bit of lacing left behind. Danky aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is exactly how the smell is. Some vegetal notes. Thin-ish. No malt character. Nice summer beer, for sure.
