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.

From the bomber for $5.99(+) alotta different hop flavors, very smooth, and the bitters behind it reminds you that you just drunk a bunch of hops. I would have liked to have the collectable surf board box though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle shared, from Supermarket Liquors. Orange and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of pine, grass and herbal hops, along with breaded, biscuit-like malts and light citrus notes. Similar flavor, moderate hop bitterness and a light dry finish. Pretty solid, but perhaps a bit dated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange color: excellent lacing. The aroma has an incredibly perfumed hop, unique to any other beer I can think of; flowery and fragrant. Whole cone hops, piney and metallic. Flavor is more metal, spicy orange peel/citrus, more perfume/flowers. Definitely a soft flower-petal component. Has a soft, soapy feel to it. No real bite on the way down. Very good, not quite sweet but soft like laundry but with lots of flavor.

From a bottle. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, toasted malt, and some dry nuttiness. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells nutty, like toasted malt, grapefruit, resin, and caramel.
