3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2016 Solid pale, murky and foreboding but with a friendly hop demeanor and a sweet malt center. Funky, pungent hops meet a mild haystack and cereal malt back, leading into a forgiving hop finish. Could use a little more ass, but it is an extra pale, so we’ll give the modest weakness of the fade a pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Really muddy looking medium/dark yellow with a frothy white head.
Very light caramel and citrus hop aroma.
Overall, the flavor is balanced towards a light hop bitterness, but this has good malt balance as well.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Murky yet brightly-colored orange beer with a sturdy rolling top of white foam. The aroma has a pleasant outdoorsy and tart citrus tilt. This drinks with a puckering goodness, rife with bitter blood orange riding atop a well assembled malt baseline. Very well done, and thankfully properly placed in its style. (#6214, 6/15/2016)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at the hotel in NOLA - sourced from Stein’s. Pours hazy orange-gold with a creamy topping. The nose has a little faded pine, grainy malts, crackers, citrus rind. Medium sweet flavour with light toasted cracker notes, orange rind, bread, grain, berries, melon. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with a little gooey resin, more ripening and rindy citrus fruits, some white grape gummies, pale bread. So so overall. May not be in peak freshness.

2/24/16. On tap at The Keg & Barrel, Hattiesburg. Most of SPB’s brews surprised me! Orange pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Great hop aroma, dank, fruity, citrus, doughy. Good flavor, could use more hop character and hop punch, but otherwise clean and tasty enough. Pretty good, excited to have more from them.

Hazy orange with a small head. The aroma is toasted malt and floral, reisny hops. The flavor is similar, very malt forward, with some lingering ibu’s.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(En fût à The Keg & Barrel): Des agrumes pales et une tropicalité évidente dans un liquide sec et peu sucré, équilibré mais tranchant. Superbe.
