3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at old chicago Manhattan, KS-pours bright orange with an eggshell rocky white head. nose of floral hops, pine, lite resin, and herbal quality with some decent lacing as well. flavors are lots of pine and resin lots of gin like quality however there is a medicinal flavor that overpowers most of the flavors in the middle of the sip. Is that sorrachi ace i detect? For some reason, i do get a lemon cleaner flavor here. decent but not great.

First! 12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint glass. This just hit the streets last week, so it is very fresh. Poured a brilliant reddish gold with a finger of off white head. Very fragrant. Great citrus/pine hop aroma. Flavor follows the aroma. Nice dose of hop bitterness. Some malt sweetness upfront. Solid malt base. Medium bodied. Drying finish from the hop bitterness. Very drinkable. Nothing crazy, just fresh, local beer, which always works for me.
