Faint aroma of hops, light grapefruit, and a hint of caramel malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a medium to large sized, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of hops, light caramel malts, light Earth, slight grapefruit and a hint of resin. Medium body. Tingly, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy, light resin finish is lightly dry.

Growler... Mostly clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Musky, earthy aroma puts forth notes of oak, cat pee and resin. Medium-bodied with nearly expired carbonation. Leans heavily toward the bitter side of balance. Earthy and oaken. Finishes bitter and astringent. Thanks to after4ever for providing the growler!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shaker Pint draft at the Brewery. Pour is cloudy orange copper with a minimal off white head. Moderate lacing. Served pretty cold, as it warmed, opened up with aroma of fresh, dank resin citrus and pine hop bitterness. Fair amount of toasty malt in there too. Nicely balanced. Taste is fresh hop bitter goodness. The citrus (grapefruit and orange), resin and pine all play together nicely. The malt is there to provide a stable backbone. Fresh and tasty. Palate thin to medium, drying, crisp clean and very drinkable.

Draft at Collins. Murky medium amber with golden highlights. Dense, creamy tan head. Nice big floral grapefruit nose, sweet and sticky icky. Lots of floaties in there. Creamy medium body with lots of good hop oils, doughy malts, and fruity hops. Yum.

Draft at Big Time. Nice nose, fresh hop, but some skunk, sweaty malt. Taste is crisp and balanced, not heavy but with a sweet of sweet malt to counter the robust hop. not bitter, smooth finish. another great big time example.
