9th January 2013
Opaque dark brown beer, thick pale tan head. Palate is light and semi soft with mild fine carbonation. Softish malt, not sweet. A little malt cream. Decent piney hops, touch of mint. Finishes soft and semi dry and somewhat wishy washy! Mild bitter linger. Okay, lack a bit of cohesiveness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium brown and smells great - lots of bright, grapefruity, weedy hops. Quite dry, again with lots of woody hops. Hints of sweetish, nutty malts pull it together. Clean like a Stone beer, and deceptively simple, everything just comes together really well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown, perhaps chestnut, color with a soapy khaki colored head. A nice fresh hop aroma full of grapefruit and pine. Really quite resinous with lots of fresh citrus qualities. Really not much malt to be found. There is some toast and nuttiness to the flavor, however. Grapefruit hop notes follow quickly behind it and there is a solid bitterness on the finish with lots of pine flavor.
