SlackerMads (2176) - DENMARK - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose has light funk, white grapes, oak, light pepper. The flavour is dominated by barnyard, leather and wood. Pepper, floral notes, perhaps some orange peel but I could not have guessed grapefruit. Has some citrus in the back and it can be felt a little on the tounge. Medium body, mild sweet, fairly dry and bitter, airy carbonation. Very Anchorage, drinks ok.

X (120) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2015
750 C&C bottle. Big bretty aroma. Looks beautiful in the glass too with a big clumpy white head atop a cloudy unfiltered yellow liquid. Tastes features tart grapefruit, hay, white pepper, lemon grass all set nicely in a mildly bready malt base. Just superb. Paired well with some summer sausage.

Light-medium sweet, with further funk, nectarine, peach, melon, light sweat, lemon. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with notes of ripe peach, melon, and mild bitter hay. Solid.
