3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden pour with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and grainy malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, sweet malt and a bit of grapefruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle with amber color and lots of sediment. a surprising amount in fact. Aroma of hops, but not overpowering, clear grapefruit smell. Actually not a very hoppy beer. Slightly malty and smooth. smooth and well balanced beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper brown body with quite some yeast residue floating around. Bubbly medium white head. Malt focus aroma powered with pine hops and spruce. Sharp bitterness, not much left of that malty base. It’s okay. (On my Florida trip)

Bottle pour of a med amber brown with a nice thick off white head with a decent amount of sediment. Aroma of little grapefruit citrus and not much else. Taste of grapefruit with a sweet roasted malt.

Over all a very smooth well balanced beer tho not very hop fforward for having hop in the name but I would buy a 6 next time.

Hazy amber-brown with an off-white head. It has a nice citrus aroma with grapefruit, orange, and some pine. The light body has a smooth texture with average carbonation. The bittersweet taste is easy to drink and finishes smooth.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Caramel color, lots of sediment, moderate cream head. Smells like pen ink and chlorine. Tastes kind of floral. A little flat, not enough bitterness for my taste, but it does have a moderately dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice grapefruit, some resin, and a bit of cat piss. Cloudy orange-gold w/ 1-cm white head. Hefty bitter bite initial, sweetens in mid palate with some stewed peaches and chicken consomme, and bitter final levels out fairly soon. Medium heavy body. Not over the top with hops. Well made, but just a touch cloying in the mid and finish

Not crazy about this. Hop nose is restrained, initially all sweet caramel malt and maybe even a hint of diacetyl, but then it showed some floral and citrus hops. Flavor starts with a peppery hop burst then some thick caramel mouthfeel. Lingering citrus pepper bitterness. More bitter than flavored by hops, too heavy with malts. Usual amber color.
