3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a golden color and leaves the same color body. With a one inch foamy white head, there is a nice spider webbed lacing speckling the pint glass. Some light carbonation is seen slowly rising. The smell has a good combination between the malts and the hops. The taste is even between the malts and hops. I would say this is very drinkable. The palate is about a light to medium with a good crispness lingering about it. There is nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a decent brew, standard and solid, but for the price, I’m not sure if I would have come back to it.

Clear, drab brass with a medium-sized white head showing moderate to moderately-low retention.
Fruity and fairly aromatically hoppy in the nose, with a West Coast tilt that adds moderate pine and strong grapefruit, though it doesn’t get resinous/sour. Malts are sparse and remain in the background, adding typical biscuit and very light hints of caramel. Clean, no alcohol noted.
Well-carbonated with a moderately malty, well-attenuated texture with notes of honey and light caramel. Leafy, coniferous, green hops begin with light pine and lemon and slowly move to a stronger grapefruit flavor. Fairly crisp finish helps disperse some of the hops acids and overall it remains quite drinkable and clean.
Backlog from GBBF 2016, big grapefruit nose, then hoppy but too sweet for my liking.

GBBF Day 1. Cask. After a frustrating 3 hour wait - the US bar finally opens and is immediately swamped! Clear gold beer, good white head. Sweeitish pale malts. Great juicy tropical fruits. Mild citrus. Modest citric peel bitterness. Great tropicals in this one. First US beer of the day and already the hopping levels are a league above.
