3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. The nose is loaded with fresh, piny dank hop character over a nice biscuity maltiness. A kiss of light caramel and even a bit of toast. Fresh hops, mostly centennial, cascade and possibly some chinook. A nice chewy malt base. The light crystal shows through with a bit of sweetness on the back. Freshly hopped with a nice lingering resinousness. A great taste of the PNW.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Blind Tiger: Rusty copper with an off white ring. Spicy zesty hop aroma- piny, grapefuit and bright Centennial/Cascade freshness. Fluffy body with a dry biscuity undertone in the body. The zesty U.S. hop give off grapefruity and piny long bitter flavors that last into the finish. A nice dry and spicy hoppy session.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is of some caramel, toast, and dough with a big hoppy presence as well. Lots of C hops for sure. Pours dark brown, murky with a lighty fluffy beige head. Mostly a hop showcase, lots of floral notes, pine, and sticky resins. Malt backbone has some doughy notes, light caramel, and a hint of toast. Long lingering hoppy finish. Really good amber. I could drink the hell out of this.
