3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the Rubicon. Pours slightly hazy copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is resin over fairly roasty malt. Med + body. Roasty backbone. Big dose of citrus with some resin for flavor. Mild hop burn. Finishes just off dry, getting some light stone fruit, and being really bitter. Quite nice.
