4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear medium amber with a small off-white head, fair retention. Aroma of orangey lightly dank hops, tinge of pine, and light dry biscuit malt. Flavor follows suit, pretty much zero sweetness, more orange with light backing pine. Bitterness peaked at a 7, dry. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. Very tasty. I think I had the first batch that Guy brought to joet’s tasting after CBC in SF. 8.5 aroma and flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet, pleasant aroma - sunkissed flowers and a spritz of lemon. Pretty standard label (it was not the one in the RB photo). Orange pour with sheet lacing. The taste is well bittered with a fairly standard line-up of hops, but they are just a bit too dominant imo. There is some warmth and tingle in the finish, plus a little sea salt. Another fine one from GF - I’m starting to keep an eye out for their new releases.

On tap @ the Pine Box, Seattle. Deep orange, slightly hazy, lasting white crown. Awesome West Coast hop character, more pine than citrus perhaps, very fresh, ending with long bitterness.
