4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught: Pours to a light amber colored body, medium white head. Aroma is strong hops: grapefruit, wet grass, and a touch of light malt. Flavor is chewy hops upfront (grapefruit, pine), with a strong bitterness that lasts through the finish, which is also grapefruit hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. My first beer from this brewery since leaving DC years ago, and this is fantastic.

Very nice murky copper pour w/ a nice white head that leaves lacing. Has an awesome hop aroma that can be smelled cleared across the room! The citrus & pine notes on the nose fade into a harsh bitterness. Not that pleasant on the palate but finishes fairly smooth after the bitter burst. I can see why the hop heads love this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can carried back from the brewery from a friend. Orange / copper type color with weak head retention aroma is nice, pine hops, candy sugar and mild sweet malts.
Flavor displays herbal and piney hops with hints of dank marijuana notes toward the back end of the sip. Just enough sweet bread malts to balance the sharp lingering pine and dank notes. Pretty tasty.
