12 oz bottle, best by 06/14. Beautiful hazy copper color on the pour. Some sweetness in the aroma that reminds me of gumballs. Definitely not your typical DIPA. Highly drinkable and outside the box. I would get this again.

It poured a cloudy golden brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of hops, grapefruit and passion fruit with grass and a big malt presence. The palate was rich and had an oily creamy finish. The taste was of passion fruit and grapefruit with a dry piney finish and a sweet malt backbone. Nice.

Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, orange, floral hops, pine, toast, and a bit of bubblegum. Taste of citrus, pine, grass, and a dry finish. Seemed like too much chinook.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’m becoming increasingly impressed with this little midwest brewhouse. Vibrant copper pour with small off-white head. Big thick earthy grapefruit aroma. Tastes of hop resin, sap, grapefruit rind and pine cone. Has an almost fresh hop feel to it. Smooth, almost chewy. Perfectly bitter. Good stuff.

One of the best Free State has to offer. Nice balance of sweetness, hops, and malt. I highly recommended trying.
