3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A copper body with a white head that had good retention but no lace. Caramel malts initially and a nice pine hop profile. A nice mix of floral, citrus and tropical fruits to it. Flavor had a nice caramel sweetness to it. Pine hops were assertive, but not overpowering. Nice hints of tropical fruits and grapefruits. A nice dry finish. Could have been fuller on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Noho Brewfest: This one pours a fairly clear, darker golden color. There was a good, dense off white head on it. There was a BIG pine hop nose. The taste was good. It wasn’t as bitter as the nose would make you think, but still has a good bite to it. Some malts in the background. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, yellow in color, with a white head. The smell is skunky, fruits, and leaves. The taste is citrus, bitterness, hops, and ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: rustic copper with a central cap and confluent ring of light peanut. Hazy. Fleeting spot lace. Dark and murky for the style.
S: grapefruit and resin. Some earthy and spicy hops as well. Malt is sweet, caramel and stronger than I anticipated.
T: Bitter, moreso than I had expected after the nose. Nice herbal hops. There is a slight fruitiness somewhere in here - faintly like fruity pebbles. Interesting. Hints of wood.
M: Medium on full bodied for the style with moderate/reserved carbonation with a wet finish.
O: this beer is eccentric, pulling from different angles. Sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet, somewhat plain, somewhat intriguing.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pour is an orangish gold, a bit hazy. A white head which leaves a good amount of lacing. Smell is citrusy with pine and skunky hops. Taste is sharp with hops, bitter orange and lemon peel. Has kind of a hay or grass thing going on that is prevalent in the nose as well. Tastes a bit off. Not terrible but a flavor and smell that is hard to identify. Not in love, but it's okay.
