3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Clear golden amber pour with a white head. Nose is slightly woody. Fair amount of pine, some orange, and a touch of grapefruit. Light lemongrass, some caramel, and marmalade. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, even more than usual. Lots of orange, grapefruit, and caramel. Lemon peel, woody lemongrass, and a moderate bitterness. A bit sugary on the finish.
Beer of the night. Slightly lemon coloured head matches the lemon and lemongrass aroma, with a hint of pine. Beautiful fresh body and balance.
