3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium caramel color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint grapefruit, lemon, floral hops and a was a bit dry. The flavor was a bit harsh and was semi sweet with moderate notes of grapefruit and lemon and a touch of pine. The finish was medium length rough fruity hops. Medium body. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a fairly bitter hops character that has some citrus and pine notes. Notes of malt in the background as well. The finish is hoppy with a short mildly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Sampled from a growler) A nice hoppy aroma starts this beer off, which pours a clear amber, with a nice white head, and visible carbonation. Crisp clean hop flavor, but not too much there on the bittering side. Light on the palate. This is a decent beer, very approachable, but not the hop smack in the face I’m looking for with an APA.
