2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival.
A cloudy, light yellow color with no head after the pour.
Tastes of high carbonation.
Citrusy and piney hops. Very prominent aroma of hops. Malt follows some sweet aroma.. slightly caramel.
It seems very hoppy. Malt is there to balance but the taste is dominated by piney and citrusy hops.
Draft pint, at brewpub. Pours a hazy orangish gold body with a one finger tight bubbled off-white head that fell to a thin film. The nose leans toward the citrusy side, but it’s rather floral smelling as well. Pale bready malt base with a touch of yeastiness. The flavor is quite hoppy without being overly bitter, the maltiness is quite soft and well rounded below. Medium bodied with a nice soft texture and gentle carbonation. For a "style" that I’m somewhat skeptical of from the get-go, this was really enjoyable. Well done.
