3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly translucent orange amber with a thin steady white head. Nose is heavy fruit- sweet grapefruit, citrus, papaya and some wet doggie malts. Flavor is nicely balanced-some sweetness from the malt and a little bit of citrus and herbal hop bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, with a fruity bitter finish. Still a tad sweet, but I think this is the most well rounded pale ale I’ve had from this brewery to date.
