3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Thrash Zone, Yokohama. Clear amber, minimal head. Perfumy apricot and grapefruit aroma. Firly sweet with clean crystal malt profile. Hop driven and stringent, works well all the way to the lingering bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unique brew that kind of wrestles around the pale ale genre. Some smooth bitterness that begins to conflict with some other slightly fruity flavors (apples?). A bit of a challenging beer that begs for repeated pints. Haunting and loving it.

Draft to punt glass
Wheat, hay and yeast.
Clear amber but filled to the top of the glass, so no space for a head.
Wheat and ready malts...hard to describe this as an APA for me, more like a wheat ale.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft - Smells like a wheat wine. Clear orange with a white head. Wheat and orange that finishes sour. I think this has gone off. If not the brewer is off his nut.
