2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a copperish reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma has some very faint hop notes mostly floral. Flavor is mildly bitter with a bit of oxidation and a bit of diacetyl. Medium bodied, slightly below average carbonation. Finishes kind of butterscotchy and flowery. There’s potential here but they need to figure out the diacetyl/ oxidation problems.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Clear dark amber with a one finger creamy light light beige head, pretty good retention. Weak aroma, and definitely not served cold. Pine hops and a lot of toasty caramel. Flavor adds some diacetyl and stronger caramel,bordering on being scorched. Semi-dry with bitterness at a 3. Light carbonation with a medium body. OK.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
this falls into the no mans land of not a pale and almost a west coast IPA. pours a light orange to yellow in color. citrusy aroma. nice red grapefruit flavor. pretty bitter. i think this is a pretty good beer but it is in a category that really demands something fabulous and this falls into the middle for me.
