3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Poured medium orange with a dense, sticky off-white head. The aroma showcased hoppage, with pine, citrus, and earthy notes leading.. softer bready notes and a touch of honey for support.. a little more sour on the back of the nose, with cloves and grains of paradise as well.. interesting stuff. The flavor followed the same course.. bready and pale malts at the core, with a lot of citrus bitterness and the aforementioned spices around.. tacky malts and spicy bitterness on the finish.. could’ve used more influence from the spices. Medium-bodied and moderately sour on the palate.. very dry and quite bitter.. solid stuff.
