AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2015
On tap at Happy Gnome. Excited to have finally. Old gold hazy yellow pour. No head. Aroma has citrus, pine and garlic. Thick and overlayered. Taste is massively dry hopped and layered. Garlic, citrus, pine. Medium bodied. Finishes thick, bitter and long. Reminds of the older Green Flash IPAs, with the overwhelming dry hopping and very long lingering bitterness. 14.4
