3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy, almost peachy in colour; something like a fruity cocktail. Bizarre, but raise the glass and lots of resin, grapefruit and bright bouncy citrus hop floats up. It’s big, round and surprisingly sweet in the mouth - again, there’s something very surprisingly sweet about this drink, the way it looks, it tastes and the way it feels. It’s like a bright bitter citrusy fruit cocktail. And that’s not a bad thing for a beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 14/4/2016
Pours quite a hazy pale peach sort of body, creamy white head.
Nose is good, really good! Resiny as all buggery, very grass, leafy, spicy, non-descript tropical fruits - malt takes a backseat, touch of biscuit there.
Texture is oily, slick, resiny once again, lingers long on the palate, distractingly so - where’d that booze go!?
Hop-slposion on the body - more fruity that the aroma - stonefruits, ripe tropicals, fruit salad I guess you could say but still very resiny/leafy/grass, touch of woody spice later on. Touch of biscuity malt tries its best but BOOM BITTERNESS - relentless, all conquering, alluding, lovely.
Killer beer! Big flavours, hops aplenty!

[ Keg ][ 2oz ][ Festival of Dankness ][ ~$2 ][ Plastic Taster ][ 8.22.15 ]
>> Wasn’t tasting super fresh so went with Venusian Pale Ale every time essentially. Stickier, denser, not really popping or refreshing. Possibly damaged in transit.
