3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is typical schmaltz with overripe grapefruit and a floral malt. The marriage of these two just doesn’t do it for me. Pours deep amber with a nice frothy head. Taste is actually lighter than the smell. Almost a pilner yeast on top of the floral and citrus. Very pleasant and easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 38°. Color is a murky orange brown with mellow carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma of caramel and lightly roasted malts. It has a bold medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor of caramel, citrus and apple backed by hop spice and a nice bitterness. In the after taste the fruits come up a bit more before fading out leaving the spice to linger. Overall this is a very well balanced and tasty brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Light grapefruit; very slight Myrcene from the Simcoe (I’m guessing) with a touch of crackery malt. Appearance: Light copper pour, leaving a film of sticky white head. Flavor: Grapefruit is balanced by crackery malts; a touch of Myrcene rounds things out. Palate: Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Middle of the road for me, just seemed muted and understated.

Taste of malt, citrus, some spice and bit of fruit. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body and smooth texture. Easy drinker that goes down way too easy.
