3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy copper brown pour with a tall, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma of sweet toffee, fruity esters, citrus hops, nice floral notes, bready yeast and some toastiness. Flavor is a little more on the toasty side, roasted nuts, toast, crusty bread, dry hay, earthy, citrus, floral and pine hops. Light to medium body, off dry, somewhat creamy, but syrupy feel, moderate strength, blanketing and fairly sharp carbonaiton. Good stuff overall, very nice hop profile, that I wasn’t really expecting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, dark golden to amber beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. It’s quite malty on the nose, with tropical fruits, toffee and some fresh fruits. Pine cone hints too. There’s a decent bitterness in the flavor, dealing easily with the sweetness there is. Toffee, tropical fruit notes and some dried fruits. Full body, smooth and pleasantly carbonated. Long malt driven finish. A quite decent one, but a tad boring I think. 150718
