3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, 2013, experimental hop #462. Pours ultra clear amber orange, small beige head, great lacing. Aroma is light, piney, caramel. Flavor is about the same, light sweet and light bitter, but the finish has medium bitterness and a bit of a metallic note. Light body. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber gold with a nice white head. Aroma is an initial pine hoppiness, followed by fruit, and a fresh hop like accent. Taste is a straight forward hoppiness with little depth to it, light alcohol, some honey like sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Meh. Itís hard to get excited with this beer, even if it is RR. Give me their house IPA any day. The aroma has a nice showing of citrus and a touch of iced tea. Flavor has some minor citrus character, a touch of bready malts with a lingering bitter finish. Great idea, just a so-so beer.

On tap at the brewery. Appley piney hops, mild, fruity and not very robust. Not sure which hop variety this edition was, but it would be better utilized in a blend.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean and extremely floral nose with a hint of biscuity malt. Orange blosson and citrus nose leading to a very clean and peonounced hop bitterness that leads to a wonderfully oily resinous mouthfeel. Nice hop finish with an extremely dry followthru.
