Delicious beer that makes a nice change from the regular IPA fare. Full bodied and well balanced, it’s a brew I can see myself having a few of for sure.

This is nice. Citrusy, fruity. Very nice mouthfeel, soft but slightly prickly. Fuzzy almost. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, pours a clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma had a little more hops than I was expecting with still quite a bit of bread and caramel sweetness rounding it out, the flavor has a hop front end with some spice in the finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a light amber with white head and lots of lacing. It has a light aroma of amber malt and earthy hops. The flavor is mild earthy hops and amber malts with a balanced, semisweet finish over a medium body.

Pours a medium caramely amber. Medium frothy creamy off-white head, fairly lasting. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, nice sweetness; citrus/orange grapefruit, toasty. Tasty and flavorful. Citrus. Piney grapefruity finish. Medium body. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. A little oily. A little creamy. Soft. Moderate dry finish. A well-made beer.

Aroma is very hoppy and fairly sweet. citrus/orange. pine.
Taste is on point. Hoppiness stays throughout, but strong sweetness, pine, and fairly prevelant citrus.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light bronze body with ok head. Nicely bitter aroma that’s a mix of PNW hops and English hop varietals--a bit of Olde Worlde meets New World, while straddling the line between ESB and IPA. Similarly, the flavor straddles these lines with a mix of hop varieties for each content. Fairly high bitterness content, with a light sweetness, and quite drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 0.355l. Cloudy orange amber color with small creamy, mostly diminishing off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Strong aroma of herbal and floral hops, caramel and dried fruits like apricots and oranges with more subtle nutty notes. Taste starts with rich, smooth and sweet caramel malt, following is fresh with citric acidity, mouthfeel is warming with alcohol note, while finish is moderate bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Not as good as American brews can be...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with some toasty dry malt. The flavor shows a nice English hoppiness over a slightly sweet toasty and lightly husky malt base. Minimal to no hop bitterness. Light bodied and a touch grainy with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice easy drinking ESB. Maybe a touch too much sweetness, but all in all a good effort.
