3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… Clear golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. The bouquet furnishes a malty note of toffee overshadowed by a full regiment of spicy, earthy hops and a citrusy-marmalade component. Medium-bodied and lightly astringent with tingly carbonation. Mirroring the aroma, the malts are trounced in the medium to heavily bitter flavor by a full complement of spicy, rindy, citrusy hops. There’s a hint of acidity in the lengthy, bitter finish.
