3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Brew Kettle. The beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and citrus. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at Leesburg Brewing Company. It pours a ruddy copper color with a small off white head. The nose has slight herbal and resin notes. The flavor seems more malt driven than hop forward. There is a solid breadiness the whole way with a little pine resin and citrus kicking in. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one seems ho-hum to me.

Cool to be rating a beer inspired by FLW less than a mile from his AZ campus. Amber colored pour with a white head. Fresh hops hit the tongue, some grapefruit peel, lemony notes, nice floral hop bill that lends to some grassy notes and then there is a nice backbone of malt. But the hops do steal the show.
