Draught at the brewpub. Pours opaquely cloudy orange gold with beige head. The aroma is toast, mango, citrus and pine. The flavor is very toasty with bitterness almost immediately. Not as fruity as the aroma. Some dark pumperknickel like malt lingers there, too. Dry, earthy finish.

The words are TOO DARN HOPPY! Wow, and not in a pleasant and enjoyable way either. This was tear your head off and laugh at you beer. Not to my liking at all.

Growler. Poured a hazy amber color with a decent sized off-white head. Big hop forward aroma with floral and citrus notes. Sweet malt pokes out from underneath. Hoppy floral and citrus flavor. The sweet malt leaves completely midway through leaving hops and a growing bitterness for the moderately long finish.
