3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. May have been suffering from palate blowout. Complex, but dominated by hops. Needs a bit more balance with malt. It would be good to get another taste of this when my palate isn’t so tired.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy, plenty of juicy fruits and malt. Big grain base helps sell the profile, especially when covering a brew this hoppy. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. Pouts brown with a thin khaki head. Nose smells of grapefruit and wood. Lots of grapefruit on the tongue interjected by splinters of wood. Fairly bitter in the finish. Not a lot of subtlety or balance to this one.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, a good amount of wood, and pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same with a good blend of everything. Average texture. A good beer.
