3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange pour with red edges. small fluffy head. Aroma is bitter orange peel, light fruitiness with some sweet toasted malt. Mouth-feel is light but adequate. Flavor is mainly pine resin bitterness, with some light sweet malt character and a bit of white grapefruit. Bitter enough for my tastes but that was the only dimension. not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours hazy deep gold with copper core and micro thin white head. The aroma is full of grapefruit and malty sweetness. Nice. The taste is also very nice for the style with grapefruit hop bitterness and hop flavor to go along with a backbone of malty sweetness. This brew maintains a decent level of hop bitterness to midway and to the finish. It ends with minimal flavor yet pretty darn refreshing.
