3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tropical fruit with grapefruit highlights. Clear straw color with creamy white head. Pungent, dank flavor that must be Citra. Nitro tap provides a mustiness. Thin, almost watery in part from the nitro. Great aromatics but the hops are a little overpowering and leave a lingering funk.

golden yellow with the slightly haze. fine-bubbled white nitrogen head. subtle nose of noble hops (dried grass / leaves, earthy, woody). creamy texture with a soft milk / yogurt flavor. hops have subdued aromatics and flavor but are sharply bitter and linger on the tongue with a prolonged numbing buzz. has the texture and flavor of cream ale with the snappiness and sharpness of esb and bitter (and at 50 IBU?!). well-made softly presented enjoyable beer. low alcohol, silky frothy texture, highly bitter.
