3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arrived a hazy, orange/light brown tinted coloring with a mild off-white head. Modest nose overall. Nice toasted grainy base, hops nose has a definite chinook presence coming through the best with an overall mild citrus, pine and earthy hopped nose. Flavor starts off with a mild orange citrus, mild pine and then moves into a huge earthy hoppiness with a mild amount of caramel malt coming through later. Body is perfect for holding the hoppiness and is well balanced with just a touch of dryness to finish. Overall a good brew with a very smooth hops presence.
