3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled as Late Summer Ale: Pours hazy orange with a big, frothy head. Aroma is really hoppy and full of citrus, apricot, gooseberries and resiny pine. Mouthfeel might be a bit on the thin side. Flavour is all about resiny, zesty, citrusy hop. The hoppy aftertaste lasts "forever".
