4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ticked on the bus during the rbwg2015 brewery bus tour. 22oz bomber pours with murky brown body that supports a tan head. The aroma offers up lightly roasted malts, chocolate malts maybe and then a dash of citrus. The taste starts with a mix of roasted malts and a modest malt sweetened resiny hoppiness. It then pulls up pleasing citrus and a bit of tropical juicy fruitiness. I like the play between malts and bitter hops and juiciness.
