Tap at PPC. Sparkling clear golden. Great retention. Insane lacing. Nose is sticky icky citrus hops. Taste is massively bitter, nutty, intense. Brazil nut bitterness. Fairly intense without getting astringent. No specialty malt nonsense. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a bit grainy and bready. Orange peel, very floral hop profile, and some pine. Light malt sweetness. There’s a lot of floral and citrus peel to the flavor, bread, and a bit of pine. Mild malt sweetness with a dry, bitter finish.

Draft. Golden orange pour, with a white head. Caramel malt, citrus, low bitterness, a kind of metallic thing going on, pine, and sweetness. Not the best choice at pizza port.

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Bronze colored pour with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma is minimal hop bitterness and a light, clean malt backbone. Taste is light pine and bitterness with some sweet malt and a grainy flavor. Clean mouthfeel. Okay.
