3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Pour is slightly hazy golden color with a big white head and great lacing. Grassy, weedy, lightly floral, piney, biscuity, straw, and earthy aroma. Taste is weedy, resinous, lightly piney, grapefruity, a touch of fruit peel, and biscuit with a medium bitter finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Clean malt profile and very hoppy, yet very well-balanced. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Toronado. Clear gold pour with a short white head leaving heavy lace. Nose is citrus hops with some sweet malt and heat. Medium body with low levels of fine carbonation (cask). Pine, caramel, citrus, booze, tropical fruit, birch and toast. Finish is a bit more bitter, but the main aromas are aromatic hops. Cut the ethanol aromas down and this is glorious.

Cask @ Toronado, San Francisco.
Pours a copper colour with a strong creamy and lacy head. Aroma of malts, grass and and strong lemony bitterness. Flavour of toasted malts, rich and very high lemony bitterness, nuts and some alcohol. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long, warming and very high bitter finish. Great.
