4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very floral, slushy, bitter with a hint of grapefruit. Really mild but with tons of flavor. Seems unfiltered although who knows. But I really dig this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazed amber pour with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of biscuit malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, bready malt and dried fruits. The finish is caramel malt up front with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnished gold color out of the bottle with a frothy white head. Big citrus hop nose. Lots of grapefruit rind, orange, apricot, hop resin and some pine hoppy flavors. Strong malty backbone and a syrupy mouth feel. The alcohol really blooms as it warms. Not a big IIPA, but a nice hop head beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
New beer entry, first rating. Fresh from the brewery. Pours a crystal clear very light amber, with a frothy pure white head. Aromas of some citrus fruit, but mostly bread and biscuits. Taste is similar, but Iím not getting any of the sweet citrus fruit, just bitter astringency and soapy malt. Buttered bread, with a bitter finish. This is a good beer if compared to other beers made in Rochester, but against any other competition this is garbage. No.
