3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a hazy bronze color with a large foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter grapefruit, orange and a touch of pine. The flavor was semi-sweet, bitter and somewhat harsh pine, grapefruit and orange. Long bitter and a bit harsh hoppy finish. Medium body. Solid.
On tap at Rivertowne. Roasted malt and sweet caramel. Medium-strong fresh Nugget aromas, resinous and piney. Dark coppery amber clear with mild haze, topped with a thin off-white foamy lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation and fizz. Starts somewhat dry with tons of fresh Nugget hop flavor. Mild caramel sweetness, carbonic acidity and big bitter finish. Lasting smooth bitter after. Nice pale ale.
