3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Ungstrup. A murky orange-amber body with an ample white head. Aroma is of sweet apple and orange notes plus abundant crystal malt character that outshines the hops at this point. Nice woodsy flavor with some welcome lacerative bitterness. Very nicely balanced by abundant maltiness. A little peaked perhaps, but still an enjoyable, quality beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of Ungstrup. Bottle, 6 months old. Yeasty, orange-brown appearance in the glass. Evidently evolved a bit in the bottle, such the malt dominates, with a viscous mouthfeel. Apricot, malt, light Cascade presence. Slightly past its prime, though still very enjoyable.
