3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Tulip. Mostly clear gold pour with a tight white head. Thick citrus floral hop flavors. Clementines. Buttered toast with marmalade and red peppers. Pineapple cores. Bamboo. Orange passionfruit. Vanilla varnish. More than a bit unusual - the flavors are generally what you would expect in a watery pale ale but are presented here ramped up with a thick, almost syrupy body. Shawnee tends to be hit or miss for me and I’m on the fence about this one. Still points for doing something different!

Nitro at railroad. Pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light but has some florals and maybe lemon? The taste is insanely light for the abv and is almost a light floral pale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On nitro pour ... Pale golden pour, thin creamy off white head and striped lacing .... aroma is light and of caramel malts and thats about it .... taste is of caramel malts and light citrusy hops with a decent bitter bite that lingers into the dry finish ... abv hidden very well, but sadly its a boring pale ale

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear golden/amber with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and malty...buttery caramel...mild earthy hops. Flavor is sweet and malty up front...buttery...and bitter and earthy towards the end. Mouthfeel is full and syrupy with an earthy/buttery dry finish. Nasty terrible diacetyl bomb.
