3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Antenna America. Aroma is pine and citrus, lightly fruity. Bit of a stinky bite. Taste is nice and refreshing but think this is getting a first beer boost in my scores. Feels a bit inconsequential. Nice enough though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed on 05/28/14. Nose is slick and densely fruity, not vibrant but it’s there, soapy with jam and light mineral, some vinous and Smartie (candy) character. Dark, dull copper with lighter golden highlights, but sort of burnished and ugly, still transparent with avg carb and a sudsy off-white head. Taste is dry and heavy with alcohol, lots of hop oil and some juice (but not sweet); bitterness is fairly low, very soapy and cleansing, very heavy full body that’s closer to flat than effervescent. Clean but not pulling me in for another.
