4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Bottle at The Rake. It has got hopo, but a little ash. Not huge hop though. Good. 837315 3.6/5. Sometimes, you get things so wrong. My previous review of this is rather remiss. Clear amber colour, thin off white head. Sherberty fresh hop aroma, highish acid level on the aroma too. Pale ale in mouth with some pale malts, ok fullness. Then on finish lots of sherbert and tasty hop, some ok bitterness, but the fresh hop is really quite remarkable. Normally you would think this would be out of balance, but it actually works pretty well. Love the hop sting without it being completely too bitter. Really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. Pours a copper-golden color, with an off-white head. Malty aromas with a nice addition of piney and citrusy hops. The flavor is mostly on the hoppy side, with pine and citrus as well as bitterness. I like it, but it is maybe a bit one-dimentional. Stinging hop-bitterness in the mouth, full body. Even though there’s lots of hops in it, it ain’t very bitter, except the stinging feeling. A little bit more emphasis on the malts would be nice though. (080118)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper-golden color, good creamy off-white head, some lace. Malty, juicy hops and some freshier clover-like hops too. Dry hoppy, bready and of course very bitter. Some grassyness, which comes with odd rubbery flavors.
