3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Limited bottling of beer, usually available only on draft. Nice head. Darker orange body with lots of carbonation when you hold it up to the light. Very fresh hoppy aroma, which carries over into the flavor. Flavor doesn’t seem complex so I’m guessing it’s a single hop beer. Hops linger for quite some time on the palate. It’s a pale ale that, IMHO, clearly borders on the high end of the hop spectrum, nearing some IPA flavors!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Schooner’s Brewery/Restaurant in Antioch. It pours a clear deep gold to copper with thin white head. The aroma is mild with faint lightly roasted malts and a faint hop presence. The flavor is really malty with some spice to pine hop bitterness. Early on the flavors are smooth and mixed somewhat. Near the finish the hops stand out a bit more with a combo of pine, spice and floral hops.
