3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of pine hops with a bit of backing funk and sweet bread. Flavor is similar with plenty of pine hops the mellow in to a sweet grain backing. The wild yeast doesn’t really come out too much.

From the bottle, pours a semi-clear pale orange with a nice white foamy head. Aroma is floral with notes of grassy hops, caramel, tulip petals, jasmine. Taste is very similar to the aroma. Smooth and and a little dry at the finish. Flavors of jasmine lending to caramel, floral hops leading to dry hops. Very good beer.

Tap @ the Horse Brass... Poured golden orange with a thin head. Could really taste the base here. Lots of alcohol heat, big resinous hops, and mild wheat tone. The yeast added the next element of bubblegum and ester spices.

On tap at lovin cup. Melon Orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is fruit and wheaty and really interesting. Flavor is also really interesting as well and tough to describe. Dry happiness maybe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an apricot color with a dense beige head that retains exceptionally well and leaves dense layers of lacing. The aroma is very strong Amarillo hops with Belgian yeast, and a hint of caramel malt. The flavor is very sweet and candy-like, with strong hops and yeast on the finish. It seems like every craft brewer is making a Belgian ipa lately. This is only one I’ve had so far that has enough hops and malt to keep the yeast in the middle to background. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.
