3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much retention and no lacing. Smells of strong citrus hops and sweet malt notes. Great aroma. Many citrus notes on the tongue. Mainly grapefruit. Ends with a sweet malty bitterness. Numbing feeling left on the tongue. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at tasting room in early December. From notes. Pours pale light amber. Aroma: dank, tropical, pine ... tropical pine cone to the throat. Taste: earthy, herbal, hop-driven beer. Feels like I have a plant in my mouth. Bitter finish, reasonably dry, lasting pine bitterness. Light carbonation, medium body, slick/oily texture. Overall: questionable indeed. I didn’t have the commercial description there when I was drinking this, but comparing it against my notes makes me wonder if I was even drinking the same beer (it was definitely the same name), or if my mouth is just totally broken.

On tap @ Hog’s Apothecary. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is really big on the melon and tropical notes. Tons of grapefruit as well. Some sweet bread, pine, and a fairly floral aroma as well. Flavor has a nice fruity hop sweetness. Mild pine and citrus peel bitterness. Grapefruit, orange, and melon. Lots of floral notes, some light bread, and a hint of earth. Not their best, but pretty good.
