The nose is amazing, floral fruity hop aromas that jump right out of the glass. Bright copper color with a small white head. Nice malt backbone with a citrus hop flavor, not typical citrus maybe kind of a grassy citrus. Its alittle diffent but it is an excellent beer.

Aroma is citrus, fruit and very earthy malts. The flavor is citrus, lemon, a heavy dose of tropical fruit, earthy malts and nicely bitter finish. More complex than I was expecting and the heavy sediment probably helped play a role.

Glad to have found this as fresh as it can probably come. Very dark crystal clear amber pour with a small amount of head. Nose is a complex blend of heady fruity hops and tropical citrus notes along with sugary toasty malts and caramels. Flavor lends a pleasant but intense fruity hop and dark sugary malt blend. bitterness is moderate but not lingering. I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Raw, leafy hop aroma with notes of toasted grain, citrus, orange and a hint of caramel and metal. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation. Lots of raw hop flavor balanced by sweet malts. Chewy rather than crisp. Ragged, but interesting.
