3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Very hazed dingy golden. A nice off white layer of foam leaves cool lacing. Lots of grapefruit here but it is not overly bitter. Syrupy fruit. Good stuff. Malts are very much in the background and the hops take spotlight smoothly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Karben4 brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of solid three c’s hops with a touch more on the Cascade side, light caramel and a touch of grapefruit. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of citrus zest, a touch of tart apple and some caramel malt. Finish is semi-dry with a long lingering hop bitterness aftertaste. Tongue shocker scale: six to seven minutes.
