3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub. The body was dark amber with a yellowish khaki head. Grapefruit and peanuts came through in the nose. The taste was bitter orange peels with some toast. There was also some roasted peanut in the finish. Mild, but that helped make it drinkable. Easily the best brew I had at Gottberg.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Nebraska Craft Brewer’s Festival. Reddish-orange to amber in color with a big foamy head. Satisfying hop aroma with grapefruit-like smell. Good alpha content with citrus flavor. Medium carbonation with a lighter body to pronounce the hops. All things considered, the best beer at the tasting.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nebraska Craft Brewers Festival: Medium reddish or dark copper color with a solid standing foam head. This has a solid hop character in a metallic-citric vein, with a bit of a mashy quality. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at brewpub. Mild citrus nose. Tons of hops. Nice clean bitterness. Hops overwhelm the malt...but I like hops.
