3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottles and several times on tap. Definitely better on tap than it is out of the bottle. Deep golden color with a solid white head. Aroma is very floral with some hints of citrus and a light grainy bit at the end. Flavor is very floral and citrus with a little bit of a malt backdrop. Pretty hop forward for the style, but thatís how I like my beers.
