3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 Troegs Scratch 12, draft at the brewery and 12oz bottle afterwards, pours murky and hazy golden wheat in color with a white head. Nose is catty, nutty, dry cobwebs along with a subtle dried pineapple fruit note. Flavor is fresh and vibrant dried fruit and dried hop leaves, a little nutty as well. Not what I would call dank or overly fruity, but rather nicely dry. Finish is strongly bitter and drying but ultimately smooth and soothing on the palate. Huge bitterness but not assertive or astringent on the palate. Very delicious.

A bold west-coast style ipa. Wonderful citrus, piney aroma. Very little malt flavor evident, but packed with citrus hop flavor that finishes long and dry. An excellent sesson beer
