3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
20th August 2016
Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and fairly dry, good fine minerally crispness. Tangy orange, some marmalade, Touch of fresher orange. Floral bitter finish, It’s quite drinkable but overall feels a little hollowed out and recessed.

Pours an orange color with a floral hops aroma. Taste was thin, with a light fruit flavor. No complexity or distinct flavor. Good DIPA aftertaste, but that was the highlight.

"Approaching Mediocre" is about as nice as I can be to this one. Genetic aroma with a confusing palate that is almost fruity and yet also an interesting bitterness. Finishes like a cheap beer.
Bottle. So Cal. 12.31.14

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle indicates from Irvine venue. So bomber from CraftShack. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is earthy, touch of caramel, hint of citrus. Full bodied, or nearly. Flavor is very earthy, supported by a decent amount of malt, but the hops is the whole thing here. I’m getting hop burn. Quite sure it’s not an alcohol burn, cause my gullet isn’t complaining. This is as clean as an earthy ale can get. Really messes with my mouth. Likin’ this a whole lot.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. States 9.2 ABV, which I think is well hidden. Pours cloudy copper. Fruity, with pine and floral notes in aroma and taste. Strong malt backbone. I was expecting a more strong bitterness in the finish and the beer was flat. If the carbonation was lively I would have rated this higher.

Bright orange colored pour with an off-white head. Starts off with some sweet malt and fruit aromas. Plenty of orange, grapefruit rind, and tangerine. Mild tropical, some floral, and light pine. Plenty of citrus qualities on the palate, too. A little bit of tropical fruit, mostly pineapple, some pine bitterness, and a hint of alcohol.
