3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Triple Rock. Lightly hazed orange colored beer with a white head. Get a really nice mix of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. There’s a big dose of grapefruit, orange, and lemon rind. Maybe a touch of pine, too. Some biscuity and bready malt, but overall a fairly soft malt profile. Nice bitterness that’s not too strong. Plenty of citrus zest, some stone fruits, and a juicy tropical fruit finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Triple Rock. Listed as a New Zealand hop IPA. Pours a clear light amber with a small white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is fruity with white wine grape dominating. There is also some caramel, dankness, and some floral notes. The initial taste has a light sweetness and tastes very much like it smelled. White wine grapes, caramel, dankness, and floral hops. The finish is drying with a decent bitterness. Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Pretty solid beer.
