3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white smear on top. Armoa is very hoppy, floral and fruity. Starts pretty malty, and the malt is always right there, but it has a balancing floral hopiness with some underlying citrus. Maybe even resin. Thereís a lot of hop. Itís maltier than some, but itís extremely tasty.
