4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at FredFest 2013 at HOTD in Portland. Should have rated this back then. It was a damned hot day, and there were a few dozen great (though strong ... so so strong) beers pouring, but this one was the one I kept returning to. Light, flavorful, sessionable ... perfect for the weather, perfect for being exactly what I wanted. When a mild-mannered bitter can hit that sweet spot where I choose to keep coming back to it over freely pouring cask Bourbon Fred or Chocolate Bourbonic Plague, it deserves to be acknowledged. If the weather was 10 degrees cooler I may have passed it by entirely, but Iím glad I didnít -- one of my favorites of the festival.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light somewhat hopped aroma. A bit of lemon in the flavor to me. Light and easy but not real interesting. Had at Aces & Ales.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a dirty white head. Perfumy sweet citrus nose. Lighter body wet moutfheel that gets a bit astringent at the finish. Like a lot of session IPAs (realizing this is a bitter), the hop flavor is vibrant up front, but drops off a cliff.
