The beer pours an amber color with a white head. Nicely hoppy on the nose with plenty of citrus, mild pineapple, and a touch of pine. Sweet caramel and toffee with a nice toasted note. The flavor is fairly sweet with plenty of toast and toffee malt notes. The hops provide a substantial bitterness, mostly pine and citrus peel. Only a moderate hop flavor to it, primarily grapefruit.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours with clear orange to bronze hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are of caramel, nutty, crystal malt, tropical fruit and decently estery. Flavors are sweet, quite sweet, caramel, crystal sweetness. Fruity, nutty, a bit chalky, estery. Lots of fruity hops. Lively bubbles. Very sweet with a fuller body. Too much crystal character for my palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Nice, if unspectacular, somewhat dimmed C-hops nose. Much more outspoken resingy hops’ flavour, even on the verge of harsh notes. Hop oil galore, if well-thinned by mineral water. Oh well. It remains a squirrel after all, and not one by Monty Python.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Tustin’s brewpub. Poured a clear, reddish amber. Low carbonation. Nose is heavy hops, citrus, fresh and rindy. Taste is tea tannic, astringent, palate wrecker. Oversteeped grain perhaps. Too tannic to really taste anything after.

Cask at Tustins. Dark brown-amber with lace. Nice hop nose with a touch of caramel. Hoppy, citra flavor, grapefruit and lemon. Not too much caramel in the flavor, especially when considering the color. Tasty stuff.
