3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, bottled on 11/6/2013. Pours slightly hazy straw gold with a huge fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits and some dry vinous grape with some earthy yeast and perfumey malt.
The flavor is bready malts with tropical fruits, a little spicy funk and some grape. The finish has a decent amount of dry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, a very nice beer. I like tropical fruit from the nelson sauvin hops and what the grape must adds.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought nice pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, juicy citrus into some slight biscuit and cracker, a nice zesty and spicy note helps to balance it. Taste is a mix of sweet pineapple, mango, hints of lemon zest, nice grapefruit into zesty and spicy hops, nice cracker and biscuit notes, finishing fairly spicy, nice and dry, slight fruit notes come back. Well done.

Slightly skunky nose but doesn’t come through on the flavor. The funk and Nelson is a great combo. Sourdough bread, earthy but all are lead by the nelson hops. Very interesting.
