3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from pub side. Pours a medium golden brown with a nice off white head. Aroma is clean with a really earthy hop character smelling a hop vine in September. Flavors is similar lots of earthy hop flavor only s little bitterness and a really crisp dry finish. Overall I like this beer it’s interesting and a perfect seasonal I like that it reminds me of harvesting hops and its good dry finish and bubbly mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured on draft at Jackie-O’s. The appearance is a translucent copper with a white cap of foam. Good retention and lacing. The aroma is grassy, floral, and just all around fresh. I guess that’s the point, though. Taste is more of the floral, grassy bitterness found in the nose. Bitter all the way through and quite enjoyable. I liked this one very much.
