4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
16 oz. can from PhillyCraft. Thanks Vin! It pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is fantastic with florals, kumquat, tangerine, mango, hints of melon and hop spice. The flavor is intense with grapefruit that turns into a rather strong pithy bitterness in the finish. There’s also some florals and light pine notes to go along with heavy grapefruit and tangerine citrus. Very light, crisp and clean on the palate with very little malt presence except for some minor white cracker notes. Acidity is high for the style and borders on astringent due the what seems like a massive dry hop for such a small beer. Super tasty and absolutely crushable. Love this.

16 oz can. Misty straw with white froth. Nose is mango, pine, toffee and pink grapefruit. Crisp with biting carb and a resiny finish. Tastes like it smells; more grapefruit and pine with lemon oil. Great hop blast for the ABV; almost too much for sessioning.

16 oz. can, huge thanks to Augie for bringing this down from the brewery. Turbid straw pour, gorgeous fluffy white head. Nose is rich, divine, and loaded with sweet pink grapefruit, a touch of peach, lemongrass, clean hay, and white pine. Flavor is a bit more restrained on the hop flavor with a touch more crisp grain, but drinkable and stellar. I could absolutely put a hurting on a case of this on a nice day. Good shit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Out of can. Auite pale, fluffy white head that laces nicely. Grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit, somewhat medicinal aroma with some orange notes. Spicy saison character, which is probably why this is such a hit with the extremists, but don’t take that the wrong way — this is a very good, subtle, tasty session beer. Bitter and not sweet, with more body than you’re expecting. Have to say this drinks like a saison for me.
