3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber pour. White head. The nose is lightly citrusy with a mix of lemon and orange. Light grapefruit and a soft resinous character. Light bodied with a softly earthy bitterness but it’s quite restrained on the IBU front. Fresh and a little bit grassy. A nice piny nose as it starts to warm up. Lightly resinous even… pretty tasty.
