Growler straight from the brewery. Pours an incandescent hazy straw color with a thick & fluffy off-white head. The incredibly appetizing aroma features lots of pineapple, grapefruit, Mandarin oranges, zesty citrus rinds, an herbaceousness, cumin, and pepper. Goes down medium-bodied. Light caramel and a touch of bubblegum upfront taste-wise. Biscuity qualities and touches of creamy vanilla in the middle. Juicy oranges, grapefruits, and a zesty citrus rind tanginess at the end. A big peppery finish. A fair amount of spice and alcohol warmth throughout. Delicious!

Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, small white head. Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste is more like a saison, with slight barnyard fruit and straw, but then the bitter finish kicks in, and we’re back to IPA territory. A very nice journey.
