3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, at RBNAG -09. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Apricot, grapefruit, generic tropical fruits, a faint note of pepper, and malty sweetness on the nose. Sweet flavor with lots of pinecones and tropical fruits. Malty-sweet with a touch of pepper. Fine, intense bitterness towards the lasting finish. Full-bodied, almost astringently bitter. A lovely beer, probably cellared a bit too long, but the hops still shine. 091107

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Geek. Slightly hazy copper color with a decent fine white head. Fruity citrus over lightly roasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is very malty, though not sweet, with a lot of floral hop. Finishes a bit astringent with some decent bitter. Not getting citrus, but it sure is something hop. Grapefruit overridden by roasted malt? Starting to seem that way.
