4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber colored pour, hint of a caramel hue. Big off-white head that stays the course and leaves ample lacing behind. Big hop aroma. Citrus and malt mixed in as well. Taste of hops an malt. Nice medium-bodied mouthfeel. Nice beer to have when you want Celebration Ale, but don’t want all the ABV.
