3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Hazy amber color with generous head. The hoppy aroma is partially fruity, nice. Medium body strength; good malt and toffee flavor, with resiny hops. Long final.
Good, bitter, but easy and too caramelly, therefore hiding the qualities of the hop.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. A really weird aroma. Quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. It’s mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
