3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, displaying a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was dank & earthy, with follow up notes of citrus as grapefruit & orange, and a bit of resin. A little less than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included a modest, citrusy & earthy bitterness that remained steady to the finish, although the texture seemed to thin a bit. Fairly "outstanding", otherwise.
