4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap flight at Freetail. Medium to medium-dark amber color with a beige head. Hop fragrance. Taste is honeydew, casaba melon, lemongrass, and tropical fruits. Very interesting hop bomb flavor profile. It’s different than the standard fare and I like it. Drinkable but not the palate is well designed. Nice lacing on the glass. A very well done beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a clear deep gold with a small frothy white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma, a bit sweet as well. Flavour of resiny hops, grain and bready malt (7-). Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. I liked the aroma slightly more then the flavour but overall it’s pretty good.

Vanilla in the aroma is present, but passion fruit somehow comes through in aftertaste. Piney hop with slight oily/slick mouthfeel.

Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium thin and fluffy white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with a piney hops character along with flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit hops aftertaste. Above average all around.

nice thick creamy head, little malty for my liking but balanced very well with the hops. Not overly hoppy they did well.
