3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
growler... medium gold, big copper tint, not a fan of the color, great carbonation for a growler, big off white head, good retention and lace... the nose is mostly hoppy, light dank, a little soap... tastes mostly hoppy, reminds me of a hoppy lager, malt backbone is a bit of bitter, bit of a weird finish I’m not a huge fan of, but pretty solid over all

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a nice effervescent gold color with a white head. The aroma is fantastic with lots of mango, orange, and grapefruit. Very juicy and fresh. The flavor is the same. The body is light, but ithas a full, juicy mouthfeel. The finish is only mildly bitter. very tasty and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Russian River. Pours a bright, clear, effervescent golden-orange color; fine-bubbled off-white head with nice lacing. Juicy grapefruit and orange hop character in the aroma, with a very dry, almost stripped core (a touch hollow). Medium body; medium-high CO2; some nice yeast red fruit along with plenty of fresh, juicy citrus and orangey hop character; like biting into a fresh orange; great American hop profile with a dry malt core. Medium-length finish: grapefruit and orange hop bitterness with a quiet toastiness. Delicious.
