4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium amber with great clarity and lacing. Aromas of honey, pine, citrus and a little caramel. Taste is pine resin, grapefruit and a sweet malty backbone. Finish dry but semi sweet. Should be an ipa if not for the abv. Outstanding brew from a brewer that cares about the product.

Deep golden with a white head - Nice hoppy aroma - A good malt body to support the hops that leaves a herbal taste and a good bitterness - The hops goes into a long hop finish that is dry - This was good
