4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler pour with deep clear gold body and copper hues supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, a bit of earthy hops as well as roasty malts, a bit of earthy malts and then a mild tropical fruit sensation off in the background. The taste has a mix of spicy hops, grapefruit hops and some roasty malts too. This is just a good tasty hop forward amber that I’m really enjoying.

on tap as part of the sampler pours deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is grassy all around, hops, malts, very earthen and clean. Flavor is much the same with hay and grass ending with a nice clean grassy hop finish. I feel like this was super fresh as the hops in the finish were very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ GTBF. Bronze colored brew with an eggshell head that left significant amounts of sticky lacing. Aroma is bright citrus, sharp pine, and caramel malt. Flavor is full of hops and also displays a mild malty backbone. Tangerine rind, freshly cut Douglas Fir, and honey...a pretty solid, very drinkable brew.
