3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster pour at Craft Beer Race New Haven. Appearance is yellow-brown with minimal ring of head and lacing. Aroma is fruit over malty base. Taste starts fruity sweet but turns bitter quickly (resiny). Palate is medium bodied with thin texture, soft carbonation, bitter resiny finish. Overall, resiny bitterness dominates the experience. Not for me.

Been seeing this popping up around town and new someday it’d be mine. Tap at Draught 56 yellow pour small head. Hoppy nose of citrus and pine. Assertively hopped with pine, lemon, peachy, green grapes, some toothpaste. Oily texture and bitter all the way. Pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the can. Heady hazy yellow pour. The aroma is more hopped up for a pale ale with grapefruit, orange, pine, and grass. The body is light to medium. A toasted grainy malt character at first and the bitterness tends to be less orange and more grapefruit and pine.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Nikki’s Liquors. Hazy bright orange pour with a huge fluffy white head. Grapefruit and floral dominate, with a hint of pine in there as well. Good assertive hop bite that could finish a little cleaner, but not bad.
