Pours a golden brown with almost no head. Nose and taste are a fairly well balanced blend of citric hops and earthy malts. Not a game changer but quite good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sold as Tuolumne Meadows IPA in Yosemite Park. Pours clear amber with a medium head that has good staying power and some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, with citrus taking the fore, backed by pine. Taste is hops dominated with a nice up-front punch of grapefruit, with a citrus/pine body and a lightly bitter finish. Smooth drinking and well crafted. Nice effort.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Very orangey hops, bit sweet-smelling. Bit sticky-sweet flavour, again much orange(peel) oriented with bitter resiny components. Kafir lime. Sticky MF too, feels light bodied and oily. Pffff...
