3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hint of grapefuit, but subdued. Deep golden color with thick, off-white head. Grassy bitterness to start, almost hay like. Tasts like a copious amount of dry hops. Malt rounds and slightly softens the taste. Medium body with malty finish. Tastes more like a well hopped pale.
