3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, Thirsty Moose Dover location. Hazy dirty golden/ amber color. Small white head in the pint glass. Aroma is pretty nice, grapefruit, oranges and big floral hops underneath the citrus. The flavor is balanced by the biscuit /cracker malt put still has light lingering floral hop bitterness. Body is a tad on the thin side but the flavor is really solid. Way better than I anticipated.

From bottle. Murky copper pour with just a little white head. Nice retention and lacing. Nose is citrus and grass. Smells like summer. Nice carbonation and near perfect balance. A good punch of grassy bitterness to bring it home. This one’s a keeper.
