3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Came a clear reddy amber/golden colour with a full head. Hops rule the brew here, citrus and floral in both the nose and taste. Uncomplicated and refreshing, suited the alcohol level: didn’t try to knock you over with hops and booze, just a pleasant brew.

Tap at PP Carlsbad. Light amber pour, small off-white head. Grassy citrus hops in the aroma, nice and fresh smelling, with some malt. Flavor has more malt profile, with bread and grain. Overall very light, easy to drink, but much like water. Meh.

Nice prominent honey and tea aroma. Clear amber. Solid tea flavor with a sweet honey finish. Not a lot of complexity, but a pleasure to drink. More EPA than APA.
