3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Cloudy orange beer with a fluffy white head. Sweet peach, pineapple, and some caramel malts. Has sort of a dank, herbal note and bitterness to it on the back end. Fair amount of sweet citrus fruits, almost like orange slice candies and a bunch of tangerine. Mild woody and boozy notes here. It’s a pretty nice beer, but nothing outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 On tap at Vermont Tap House, Williston, VT.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange/amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Gentle semi-sticky lacing runs around the glass.
The aroma had grapefruit rind and pulp blending with sweet danky onion. Fresh green hop oils like in Tribute burst forth in due dilligence.
The flavor rides the palate of fresh bitter oily sweet dankiness. Long fresh hop oil aftertaste sliding into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs right.
Overall, it’s Tribute on steroids. Of course, I’d have again.
