TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft on tap at Hunahpus Day 2013 (Tampa, FL). Pours a nice glowing orange amber hue, some fiery summer sunset glow, gentle haziness, deeper orange body. A frothy whitish head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are nice and dry, florals and lemon, a touch resiny. Some earth, florals, and mellow bready malts, grass, straw. Nicer citrusy hops, good dry bitter earthy hops. Middle is some tangerine, bready malts, a touch toasty and earthy. Some mellow dough, grass, and gentle bubblegum and tropical fruit into the backend and finish. Dry, citrusy with nice bitterness, fresh hops into finish. Solid hoppy offering here.

On tap at CCB. Nose is crisp grapefruit and pine, with a light malt backbone. Very hoppy, dry, sessionable-goodness. Nice.
