3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Cap Ale Innsbrook. Medium amber orange, slight head. Aroma is hoppy, citric and pine. Flavor is light on the malts, almost thin bodied. Hops are the dominant feature of this beer, citric grapefruit and pine dominate. Not much else here. Needs some malts invited to the party. But not a bad brew.
