2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow gold pour. White head. Light citrus hops, a hint of lemon. I have to ask, where are the apricots or kumquats? I get neither which is disappointing.

A taster at The Whole Foods. Pleasant apricot notes that fade into a metallic finish. First half of the beer is good but don’t know what happens at the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 ounce sample on tap at Rubicon. The aroma on this has some crystal malt character with a slight piney hop aromas. Not getting much fruitiness in this. Smells very similar to SNPA. Transparent golden body with a small, white head that is quickly dissipating. Starts slightly fruity with some apricot flavors, before this becomes a little spicy, piney, and hoppy towards the middle and finish. Tastes like SNPA with a little bit of fruitiness. Decent hop bitterness in the end.
