4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange copper with a small broken head. The aroma is great. Strong mix of orange, citrus, dank, floral notes, light pine and caramel. The flavor is lightly toasted caramel that fades into a slew of juicy American hops and extreme bitterness. A little bit of weird balance in the aftertaste. Pretty F’n hoppy, better than expected.

12 oz. bottle shared by my niece’s husband on New Year’s Day. Pours a lightly hazed burnished gold with a moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit and a bit of pine. The flavor begins with some malt with a bit of caramel followed by some grapefruit and pine bitterness. Medium bodied. No problems.
