4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014
2014-05-06, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Cloudy light amber color with small creamy head. The aroma is well hoppy, both fruity and resiny, and some toffee. Full bodied; the malt flavor is a bit too chewy, with caramel, toffee, quite sweet too; very strong bitterness, the resiny is mainly hoppy, piney, a bit fruity too.
Good, but just on the heavy side.

Hazy amber color, creamy head. The aroma is nice, hoppy, very fruity. Good body, smooth and round; very good toffee flavor, with a touch of biscuits and chewy crystal malt; powerful hopping, resiny and fruity.
A bit heavy to drink, but gets an extra point for the high fresh fruity component.

Fruity and playful, with a soft almost tripelesque character about it. Bubblegum and tropical fruit on the nose. Tropical fruit, citrus fruit and a good malt backbone to anchor all the fruit. Fun and pleasant to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Suttree’s Tavern. Copper, thin but dense head. Smells like caramel and toffee, then a slight grassy note. Flavor is a little sweet, then a big resiny hoppy finish. Not particularly balanced, which is fine with me, actually.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, served in an imperial pint glass at the Dilly Cafe in Cincinnati. First time trying this place out, had lunch with my grandmother (good sandwiches; will return next week to try the Laughing Dog Anubis). Hazy amber color. Nice, foamy thin white head that persists. Light, smooth carbonation, good lace. Nice bittersweet taste. Really nice piney grapefruit citrus aromas, on a maltier base. I enjoyed it.
