3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Aroma of tropical fruits, rich, sweet, rye malt with a nougat character. Flavor is very sweet, surprisingly sweet almost, considering all the hoppy, tropical fruit notes that continue to come through. Pretty simple, and a bit too sweet for me to want to finish a whole pint, but not bad either.

Pours amber/copper in coloration. a somewhat hoppy aroma . The rye is undoubtedly noticeable in the flavor yet an ipa esc quality shines through it due primarily to the notable grapefruit flavor.
