4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very cloudy copper with a frothy, dirty head. Sticky, lace blankets the glass. The aroma is earthy bitterness with a strong malt backbone, and though the hops dominate, it is balanced. Smooth fruity bitterness with a strong maltiness characterize the flavor, though the beer is definitely hop forward. Strong but still smooth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pours a golden amber colour with a sand-coloured medium head. Aroma of fruity and herbal hops with grapefruit and resin. Very powerful hops in the flavour, feels very grassy and there’s also resin and lots of bitter grapefruits.Sweet and fruity at first but the hops are very dominating in the aftertaste. Slick and soft mouth feel, and a heavy lingering bitterness. Starts well but the heavy bitterness makes the beer a bit unbalanced in my opinion.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled as part of a hop education class. Much more spicy in taste than Bravo or Williamette. Not as smooth as the Nugget. The spicy note appears to be ginger and pepper. As a beer, not as good as B, but maybe a tick better than W.
