4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours clear gold with a white head and sheet lacing. The aroma offers up some sweetness, solid floral hops and some citrus too. The taste is crisp with floral hop bitterness blending into lime and lemon like citrus notes. This is fresh crisp and pretty darn good too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore. It pours a clear copper orange color with an off white head. The aroma is very dense with a good balance of piney and citrus hops with some darker, sweeter malts. The flavor is the same. Very hoppy and bitter with some light notes of kilned and caramel malts, but the hops definitely dominate this beer. This was supposed to be a lager, but it tastes a lot like Torpedo to me, only a little drier.
