2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber, decent head and retention. Nose is a big dose of floral hops, orange peel maltiness hiding behind it. Mouth is a decent bouquet of hoppy bitterness until the grainy malts kick in (typical of Two Bros.) and ruin an otherwise worthy effort.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice sticky head over hazy amber body. Aroma of pine, grass, and oxidation. Taste of upfront bitterness and very oxidized. Full bodied and fairly clean otherwise. Palate not as bitter as expected, but that might be an age thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lot 2552 - 12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Cloudy amber appearance with a small beige head.
Aroma of grassy and piney hops, a bit stale, and some caramel.
Juicy hop flavors, though not super fresh, with sweet maltiness and med-hi bitterness. Some nuts and marmalade notes.
Medium body, dry, pretty balanced and can be awesome when fresh.
