4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Enjoyed a pint of this one on draught at the brewery in Philadephia, PA. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep copper color, with a thick, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with excellent pale and caramel malt aromas, paired with some fruity esters, and citrus hop aroma. The palate is firm, with excellent pale, caramel, and nuttty malty flavor, paired with juicy, estery fruit flavor. This beer finishes with more excellent pale and carmel malt up front, then ends with a fruity/citrus hop bitterness that cuts the malt sweetness, and slightly lingers. Wow. Nodding Head brews another very impressive beer with The Wumpus. Delicious, flavorful, yet so, so drinkable. A great session brew. If time would have allowed, I would have closed Nodding Head the night I visited.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper/amber color. Aroma is mildly fruity hops and a lot of malt. Flavor is close to the BPA but this is more malty. Quite creamy and smooth. Pretty good.
