-served in pint at location.

A: Very clear presentation with a pale orange coloring and a standard thick and creamy froth iron hill head. Light and loose carbonation bubbles are slow to rise. Rewarding glass coverage of lace.

S: Sweet tropical nose of pineapple-orange, that was fresh and wet, but very weak. Wish there was more substance. Some light toasted barley sweetness. Nice scent but you really had to earn it and dig in deep to appreciate it.

T: Sticky piney and citrus hop resins, along with some sweet toasted grain. Strong rate of bitterness, my only compliant, would be that the overall flavor was a bit mono-tone, didn't progress or had any bright spots. Was hard to distinguish any individual qualities. Finishes with some flowery bitterness and a strong malt support.

M: A light mouthful, weak malt support, some carbonation around the tongues edges. Slick texture, but overall average.

O: I really like the sticky hop resins of the palate, however the flavor seemed a bit muted with few bright spots and highlights, and was hard to distinguish individual qualities. A good but otherwise ordinary attempt 83

August 2018 - clear bright gold with heavy white foam. Laces everywhere. Pine and citrus buried in the nose. Subtle bitter, buried in a lemon zesty malt. Peppery bitter holds.

Clear light orange with a finger and a half of white head that leaves decent lacing. Tea-like hop aroma. Mildly nutty malts, tea-like hops and a ghost of tropical sweetness in the taste. Medium bodied. Middle of the road.
