3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is full of orange, grapefruit and pine, with a little bit of biscuit malt. Overall, this is a very hop forward smelling beer, as expected. The flavor is has a lot of the same notes. The grapefruit and resin work very well together and are complimented by a hint of orange citrus. There is a little bit of sweetness from the biscuit malt which keeps the bitterness in the low to medium range. Easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparkling dark copper with a nice sticky off-white head that leaves a thick coat of lacing. Odd aroma - kind of cereal-like with some floral notes. Flavor is interesting - not just the usual grapefruit-induced hop onslaught - some of that of course - but also detect some minty rye, a bit of soggy cereal, some toffee-like sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice texture to it. Overall, not bad at all.
