4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Past notes. Colour...medium amber with a frothy head. Nose...incredibly hoppy with lots of dusty, piney notes. Palate... suh-weet!!! And I mean, quite sweet, though, somehow, it’s not super cloying. The hops are quite pronounced, and yet there’s so much malt, there’s quite a nice balance. There’s a dryness on the mid palate, and on the finish as well. A truly delightful beer for the style!

Bottle: Poured a orangish brown with a huge off white to beige head. Aroma is super hoppy and some dough. Taste is a gritty hops with some malts. How the hell can they last for this long, I expected some mellowing.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from MaltOMeal at the August Hosuton tasting. Thanks, Bill!
Pours a curious amber with an aroma of biting grapefruit pine. Flavor is a nice, dry, mouthpuckering grapefruit. Leaves a lingering film on the tongue. For some reason, I didn’t find the color indicitive of the taste. Good beer.
