3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Clear amber, with a thick white head. strong grapefruit hop aroma. strong malt aroma supports the big, mouth-coating hops. Hops linger on the palate for a while, but at no point do they overwhelm. nicely balanced and drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden color with nice sized soapy head. Grapefruit hop aroma and taste, with some pretty good malt flavors mixed in. For some reason this didn’t really hit the spot and seemed a bit off, but overall its a decent-good APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, fruity hops, and salt. Very british like maltiness of caramel and toffee. Soft carbonation. Medium bitter finish that is very leafy, with a tad amount of soapiness. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber-oak appearance with a slim head. Enticing fresh hop aroma, balanced with a hint of roasted malt. The taste does not disappoint, with an excellent balance of medium malt followed by the crisply-proportioned hop finish that lingers enjoyable in the top of your mouth. This is the best Nodding Head beer I tried and the only one I would order again.
