3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured a muddled yellow-orange color with a moderate white head that faded to a ring. Aroma of pepper, passion fruit, and tangerine as advertised, paired with lemon, ginger, a lightly dusty yeastiness, and some faint earthy hops. Smooth, lightly dry entry lead into a moderate earthy yeastiness and hints of orange and lemon paired with a peppery spiciness that lingers into the moderately dry finish where some soft earthy hops peak through. Moderate carbonation and dry overall mouth feel. Overall, its not quite dry and earthy enough, there’s a tad too much fruit that make it seem more juicy.
