3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Malt & Vine. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper. Thin but dense creamy tan head. Nice earthy, leafy hop nose, unfortunately dominated by a heap of movie popcorn butter...huge diacetyl bomb. Gorgeous creamy medium body with nice crisp and refreshing carb. Mid-palate comes up with some biscuit and maybe crackers, then a nice burst of earthy/dry-leaf-y hop presence, all washed over by acrid stale fake butter. The finish should be all tidy and resiny with a nice cling, you can tell, but there’s so much diacetyl it gets kinda vomitous. What a shame--this one showed huge promise.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of fresh leafy hops. Also diacetyl and some light pale malts. Pours a golden tone with a nice lasting fluffy head. Fresh earthy hops initially followed by some bready/biscuity malts. Some butter creeps through and detracts from the pleasantly fresh hops. Crisp fresh finish. Medium carbonation, smooth, and fresh. But the butter... oh well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ The Front Door: Pours a copper golden color with a nice sticky head and nice lacing. The nose is fresh with some piney resinous hop notes and a lupulin dust like cascades. A pale malt and chewy vine note in the flavor. Bitter tail with a hoppy balanced wet hop notes with the dry. Not bad, hoppy but a little sticky and resinous.
