3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark amber color. Hoppy aroma, earthy; leafy and fruity later; very nice. Thin (really too much) but smooth mouthfeel, dry caramel flavor and strong bitterness, a bit too astringent. The final is a bit harsh and dry as well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour was a cloudy orange with some brown highlights. The head was off-white and ample, but provided little in terms of lacing. The aroma is mild citrus, Wrigley’s spearmint gum, malt, floral hops, iced tea. The flavor was herbal, citrus, granite, some iced tea, and some floral hoppiness. The mouthfeel was nice and the finish was super dry.
