3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear golden pour with white head. Citrus peel hops, a bit of pine, and some floral hops. Light grass notes, too. Bread, toasted malt, and a bit of caramel sweetness. The flavor is decently hoppy, but is overly grassy. Fairly sweet, too. Caramel, bread, and toffee. There’s a decent citrus note and some pine bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden hue. Moderately long lasting head. Not filtered. Aggressively hopped but not unreasonable. Nicely balanced. Some itrus notes on the nose and through the taste. True to style.

Some pretty decent hops to the aroma. Looks good. Aah, the first really bitter beer I had the entire California trip (a month ago). It really isn’t anything extraordinary but that’s okay, as I’ve just been craving a hop beer for awhile. This works.
