3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney grapefruit aroma. Toasty grain flavor bordering on a nice pilsner in that respect. The hops come through again a little later on the palate and in the finish. Grassy and hay like that is followed by some resins pine aspects. Not a typical hop profile but still enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery. A clear amber ale with a durable bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Bitterness kicks up in the finish and lingers on in the grapefruit-rind flavored aftertaste. Some malt flavor with little [it seems] balancing sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy dark amber, off-white head that stays awhile, curtain of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that is joined in the palate by citrus hops that easily balance, but don’t completely cover up the malt. Not a power IPA, but a well-balanced Ale with good hops.

A dark golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and celery? Weird. Flavor is somewhat bitter but also sour. Im getting some oranges, lemons, cooked veggies. Overall drinkable but a bit off.

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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Nose is an inviting tropical citrus experience with a light crackery and bready malt presence. Pour is fairly clear And light red in color. Small white head with excellent lacing. Taste. Oh. Taste. This is where the beer heads south. An overly sweet sticky mess that has an apple like character to it, then a slightly astringent drying finish. Seems like it is on the verge of a catastrophic problem and just barely holding itself together. Not that great. Or good. Or decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an orangish gold with a massive head and aromas of herbal hops, citrus and dish soap. Flavor is astringent and soapy with little redeeming to offer the world.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from HBT trade. No date on bottle, but another expired beer from this trade I presume. Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with the smallest head of white foam. Aroma of malt extract, malty caramel, and old rotted grapefruit. Taste is much the same. Lots of syrupy maltiness, caramel, grass, bitter citrus peel, and rotted fruit. Meh
