3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a weird but fun brew for sure. It smelled like hopped-up french onion soup. The taste was all hops and bright citrus flavor but... Maybe even an aftertaste of onion too. Hmm.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is fruit, grass, onion, lemon, and citrus bitterness. Flavor is similar with onion, grass, pine, some citrus, and a hint of malt. Nice, complex pale ale with a great new hop.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from the brewery. Nice fresh hop aroma here with pine, some tropical fruit, floral notes, and crackery malt. The pour is mostly a clear golden color with a thin to moderate white head. Definitely hoppy stuff but also rather light in the body. A crackery, buttery malt sweetens it up a little, and mixes with grassy, herbal, and pine hop flavors. Firm bitterness and rather dry in the finish. Incredibly easy to drink as my glass doesn’t last long. Nice stuff.

Growler. Pour is mostly clear orange with white head. Aroma is grassy hops, not really floral. Lots of herbalness to it. Hoppy with some maltiness to it. Biscuity, crackers and hops. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler @ home, courtesy of a real fucken chill bro. Thanks bud! Pours a fairly clear, orange appearance with a khaki head. Spicy, onion, garlic hoppy, quite herbal, mild grain, bitingly spicy aroma. Smells like a real fucken chill low boost, hop bomb. Neate. Soft pale malty, lightly toasty, cracker, big onion, very spicy hoppy flavor. Good carbonation. Solid session brew that isn’t too hard to crush. Really hitting the spot right now. Boy, I love these Florida homers.

Growler thanks to one real chill beer bro. Pours gold with a slight white head, moderate lacing. Carbonation held up great. Citrusy and lightly bubblegum head. Very thin/watery mouthfeel. Taste is lightly citrusy, grassy, dry and lightly bitter finish. Refreshing, easy drinking. Decently chuggable.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a growler filled at the brewery. Clear light golden color with nearly no head. Amazing hop aroma like the bag I get from the homebrew shop. Piney, buttery, citrus, honey. Flavor is pure vegetal hop, some spice, and a bit of a dirty finish that reminds me of a lager or wheat beer. Hmmm. The spice from the hop is unique here but the finish is really sub par unfortunately. Light mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Will pass on this next time, or maybe just sniff it a lot.
