Bottle at RBWG late night tasting. Deeper golden orange with a small fizzy white head, some sticky lace. Nose is big and resinous, almost sappy, lots of sweeter caramel malts, and a light booziness. Flavor is more of the same--lots of resin, lightly cheesy, toffee, caramel, more boozy hops. Sweet and resiny and top my favorite take on the style.

Bottle at RBWG. Nothing strong on the nose. Dirt and malt. Very earthy, almost gritty. It’s not too bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and tropical hops with bubblegum notes. The taste is big grapefruit and other citrus notes, berries, tropical fruits and toffee malts. Medium bodied with a hint of booze. Weird beer, but still a good one.
