3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Fermentation. Bright amber pour with a small white head. Nose is grainy and sweet caramel malts with lingering citrus bitterness. Flavor is is more citrus and piney than the aroma with similare malt backing. Decent bitter finish. Not too bad.

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)
