3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a somewhat cloudy bronze color, with a lingering beige head. Very hop forward, with aromas of citrusy hops and pine. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with biscuity malt, citrus zest and piney hops. A very hop centric and delicious pale.

Tap @ brewery. Goldenyellow appearance with a very small head. Well rounded nose between the pale malts and a mild hoppy aroma. Pale malty body with a cleanser-like, bitter hoppiness.

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.

Growler from the brewery - cloudy glowing orange pour, with thick, sticky lace - sweet pale malts hit the nose first, some notes of honey, but earthy hops are the star of the show, with abundant citrus notes - some fruity esters (strawberry) - soft carbonation, medium to light body - a fairly sturdy malt base does not get in the way of the earthy hop flavor - a lot of flavor from the hops, but not a great deal of their bitterness until the finish, which is lightly peppery and minty - some dry, crackery malts on the tail end - decent.
