4.22/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy gold color with a 2 finger off-white head

Aroma is pungent with slightly musty stone fruit notes.

Taste is similar, not sweet, with a tart nectarine and grapefruit flavor coming through. I happen to like this flavor and I think it deserves better than the 3.96 score it currently has. I'm not a fan of musty notes but it is not very strong. m The flavor is consistent from start to finish and there are no weird off flavors.

Feel is soft and light to moderately bitter. There is a bit of seltzer to it too.

This is a great beer - perhaps not the best in the onsight series but it has well balanced and clean its its presentation. This is worth a shot IMO.

4.06/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves good lacing

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit along with some floral notes and wheat

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and tropical fruit notes along with the wheat and malted oats. Some floral notes come through as well. Definitely some yeast influence in there too. Finishes with lingering malt

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid IPA that is easy to drink. The citra and simcoe definitely lend their fruity notes and balance the malt well

Look- slightly golden haze with a decent soft head.

Smell- grapefruit papaya mango some breads maltyness.

Taste- malty when it first hits tongue, getting grapefruit mango.

Feel- smooth with a fine dry finish from the hop resin.

Overall this is a very good beer. Well done Battery Steele!
