3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Haven Gastropub. Clear orange colored pour with a white head. Nose is intensely pine forward. Big grapefruit peel as well. Very light malt, maybe some cracker and bread. Hints of tropical fruit. Big, big bitterness on the tongue. Very dry as well. Tons of pine and citrus peel and pith. Some grapefruit, light orange, and a bit of grass. Minimal malt sweetness, just a bit of bread and cracker. Pretty good, though less aggressive bitterness would have been appreciated.

Sample at GABF 2013. Pours amber orange with an impressive head. Powerful aroma of orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. Medium body with lively carbonation. Surprising lack of rye spiciness. Sweet malt body with plenty of bitterness to cover it up. Overall, an interesting beer.
