Served on draft at the restaurant. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and not much else. The taste is citrus and herbal hops with an almost peppery note. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2011 Tap @Raleigh WBF This version was filtered through fresh hops sitting there next to the tap. Mmmmm. Pours a cloudy dark orange with an enormous head (from the hops filter) that took time to settle down. Taste is very strange at first. Instead of pine or citrus I’m getting lots of cardboard, spices, earthiness, soy sauce, and dirt. Very malt heavy even with the raw hops but this combination is not working well. Astringent and acidic on the palate. Tastes a lot like a homebrew IPA that is trying too hard. Not a cohesive offering. I would like to try more varieties from these guys but this was not a great start. 5/4/2009 6/4/5/3/10=2.8
Tap @Pre-Sex 2011. Poured a hazy yellow with a medium white head. Nice sticky lace. Citrus hoppy, zesty aroma with fresh grapefruit. Taste is bitter, fresh, extremely dry, extremely astringent and lemony tart. Still lacking balance and just too much nutty bitterness. Way too dry. 1/29/2011 7/4/5/3/10=2.9
