3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours clear deep gold with copper hues and thin off white head. The aroma offers up a light amount of lemon and lime like citrus notes on top and underneath there’s wort like grainy maltiness. Overall it comes together pretty nice. The taste has a modest tart citrus note that quickly picks up floral hops and a bit of spicy hops. Toward midway and into the finish it gets grainy to wort like and a little malty. The modest level of lemon lime like notes grow to tepid levels into the finish along with just a slight resiny hop notes.
