4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from brewery. Pours hazy canary with white clingy head. Nose is huge resiny pineapply hops, tropical citrus, black pepper. Tastes rich, fruity, with mango, pineapple, star fruit, and finishing black pepper and honey. The palate is rich, with smoothness on a nitro level, and a great finish. This one kicks major ass. I called Scratch 4 and was the first to recognize it’s profound greatness, and I’m calling Scratch 78. Chris and John, you need to make this all year round, and as a tribute to 78, please call it Dwight White Hop Blaster Ale (in honor of #78 from the Steel Curtain, Dwight White).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Fluffy white head on a clear straw orange body. Doughy, slight pure honey, aggressive hoppiness that comes across earthy, woody and citrusy in the aroma. Flavor is a touch sweet, biscuity, earthy honey, and a grassy hop finish. Lighter body. Strange, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange with a rocky white head. Aroma is powerful hops, citrus, pine, pineapple, resin. Body is medium and slightly chalky. Flavor has loads of hops juice, citrus, resin, fruit, and light sweetness. Mid-level bitterness. Not really sure why but this one just seemed like a miss to me. Solid but nothing exceptional.
