3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
17th July 2014, this beer was on my first flight of the day at Pizza Port’s San Clemente place. Poured a pale yellow with a thin white head. Has a malty, yet citrus hoppy aroma. The taste was more leaning towards bitter hoppiness leaving most of the citrus notes in the nose and the maltiness as a forgotten undertone. Liked it. Good body depth and the 5.4% ABV suited it nicely.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a low haze straw. Persistent layer of foam. Nose is muted, orange peel, vanilla, white grape juice. Taste is very dry, nutty, some Asian fruits like jackfruit, papaya. Still quite dusty and papery. Maybe Nelson or Sorachi Ace hops?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium white head that dissipates to a film quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of herbal hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with a zesty citrus hops character and notes of bready malt and light spice. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering hops aftertaste. Above average all around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour is a clear golden color with a big white head and sticky lacing. Citrus peel dominates the nose. Lots of floral hops, bready malt, and a light sweetness. Some grapefruit, tangerine, and a light pineapple aroma as it warms. Mild bitterness to go with a nice fruity hop profile. Grapefruit, orange, and tangerine make up the bulk of the hop flavor, though there is a fairly strong floral character. Plenty of bread sweetness with a light toffee note.
