4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mug at the brewery taproom. Golden in color with a frothy white head. Light bodied with bitter hoppy flavor. Long smooth bitter finish. Less intense than the Elevated IPA, but quite good. Reminds me a bit of Pyramid Rock Pale Ale, but with different hops. Glad to have tried this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was called a Mild at the tasting where the growler pours with a clear gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up inviting Simcoe hop like goodness with a nice mix of citrus and spicy hops sweetened perfectly by a dash of malts. The taste is similar with a pleasing citrusy hoppy goodness and richness that somehow squeezed into this low ABV beer. To midway additional notes of mildly dank spicy hops with just enough sweet malty backbone to hold it together. Lovely rich Mild with style breaking depths.

Growler poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, orange zest, pine and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit with a crisp dry bitter lingering pine finish.
