3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sunset for their Shorts event prior to EBF. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Toast and hops on the nose. Sweet and toasty. Big long bitter finish. Probably one of the more bitter beers I’ve had in a while, but not unwelcome after a couple of the syrup bombs we had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange juice like sweetness on a pretty solid if not strong hop nose. A pretty good pale ale, a bit on the sweet side to have more than one or two, but the flavor comes through really clearly. On tap at Sunset Grill.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured clear ruby golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy floral earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter & sour flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter & sour finish of medium to long duration. Interesting beer, but not my style.
