2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery in Grand Rapids. 6.5% ABV
An aggressive and highly hopped ale.
Light golden in color with an unimpressive head and minimal lacing.
The aroma reeks of hops, perhaps some fresh hops at that. Tropical fruit mixes with earthy pine. This mix is stronger and less pleasant in tasting, but with a clear impression of somewhat skunky weed.
O: A disappointing offering but likely only because I didn’t care for the specific hop (Mosaic) used.

Served in the taproom. Cloudy golden yellow pour with eighth inch of beige head. Super juicy sweet grapefruit citrus aroma. Soft carbonation, somewhat watery mouthfeel, very clean finish. Very juicy grapefruit hop and strong mango-like fruit flavor. Very similar to their harvest ale but lighter and a bit saltier. Exquisite beer for sure.
