3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 650ml. Beautiful hazy amber body with a thin off-white foamy/creamy head. Very enjoyable hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy, herbal, and oaky hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal, woody, and citrusy notes. Ends with a long, robust, warming bittersweet finish. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Moylans. Kind of amber in color with a white head. Nice grapefruit, pine, and woody hops on the nose. Sweet caramel malt, a touch of pineapple, and oranges. Flavor is a bit sweeter than I’d like, but good piney, woody bitterness. Light herbs and tropical fruit. Plenty of grapefruit and orange. Pretty heavy dose of caramel.
