2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep yellow body with a frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of toasted grain, resin, sugar, soap. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture turning syrupy, lively carbonation. Lots of resinous hops that overshadow anything else that might be in this beer. Too sweet, rough, alcoholic in the finish.

This beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium thick white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of citrus and toasted malt. Medium to full body with flavors of hops, zesty citrus and malt undertones. Finishes moderately bitter with a grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
