3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Lord Hobo. Pours a slightly amber golden color with a finger of white fizz that disappears quickly. The nose has a bit of herbal tea, sea air, cereal malt and a bit of lactic sourness. The palate follows with great balance and restraint. Not to salty, not to sour but just right and very crushable. Nice complexity is added by the hibiscus flower... touches of grass, citrus and a smooth round cheerio backbone that keeps everything in check. Clean lingering finish !

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at Lord Hobo 6 minutes to 6 pm. To goblet, it pours a hazy, yellowish sandy-orange with a nonexistent head that was once white when released from the valve. Aromas of sea salt, shandygaff, beach sand, citrus, peach syrup, pine, and hibiscus. Fuck, this is refreshing! Immediately I get pale malt and sea salt, met with tangerines, hibiscus, cotton, and noble hops. Funk, breadcrumbs, wax, spinach, and honey at swallow. Thin, irresistibly smooth and reinvigorating. Top-notch.
