3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Stone "World Bistro & Gardens" in Escondido. Pours pale golden orange with thin creamy head. Aroma is sweet citrus and a hint of hops. Taste is clean caramel malt, hugely bitter with notes of grapefruit, lemon, and earthy hops. Bitterness lingers on the finish. Not overly impressive in a particular direction; but the fact that this is on tap AT Stone is a testament to its quality.

Poured golden hued. Smelled piney. Tasted bitter with a bit of sweetness. It felt like something was missing. They probably need to keep working the recipe.
