3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Fiddlers. Mets are hurting - sorry beastie, but there’s still a lot of play left in this team. Clear burnt copper pour with creamy white head. Aroma is big on citrus, slightly less big on pine. Lightly sweet; not caramelly; moderately bitter finish. Bright citrus throughout. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: I’m surprised by how much I like this - one of the better fresh hop beers I’ve had this season.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 09.16.14.
A: Strong grapefruit and orange. Very citrusy.
A: 1 finger head that recedes to a ring of bubbles with nice lacing. Cloudy orange body.
T: Grapefruit, orange, and hop resin dominate. Pineapple is subtle.
P: Creamy with a crisp back end.
O: The hop resin is super strong as it should be. This is my first fresh hop beer and it was very interesting to compare against. It has a green plant-like flavor. It was very enjoyable.
