3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head that leaves a good amount of lace streaks and spots. Aroma of toasted malts and sugars, grassy hops, and a bit of florals, perfume, and citrus- but just a little. Flavor of citrusy and floral hops, caramel and toasted malts, brown sugar, and resin. Medium-bodied, with a resinous, sweet mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Didnít do much for me at first but revealed more charms as it went along.

The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and biscuit malt. The flavor is a little more complex. The biscuit malt comes through up front, but the hops also are present with some orange and pine. The bitterness is fairly low, but the hop flavor comes through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Gomers in Leeís Summit, Missouri. The pour is a mostly clear golden orange, with a small off white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is light spice hops, floral, along with some grain malt. The taste is floral, a touch of musty dank, tropical fruit sweetness, all melding well with the toasted malt. The palate is medium bodied, lower carbonation level and dry lightly bitter finish. Nice enough.
