3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnt orange pour. White head. Aroma is hoppy, light caramel, dank wood aromas. Quite bitter on the tongue. Citrus hops. Strong aroma of citrus and yeast. The flavor has a strong citrus hop bite to it along with a decent underlying maltiness and a dry, bitter edge in the finish. Pretty good overall.

Deep malty color. Some sediment. Frothy head lasts indefinitely.Aroma is floral and bitter. Taste is light citrus and medium bitterness but a strong malt backbone fights for attention.

Sampled as part of a hop education class. Williamette on steroids. Stronger, and more bitter. Has the same solid body as W. Perhaps more earthy, and a very very subtle chocolate linger.
