3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from greens. Definite big citrus lemon and grapefruit. Lots of it on the finish. Not of a more toasty grain aroma. Finish is grapefruit bitterness. Could be a little more diverse and rounded out and complex. At the end of the day though this has a lot of flavor and is very entertaining for a session ipa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours golden with a foamy light tan head. Nose is a bit watery, but there’s the classic garlic/onion hops, some grapefruit, and a mellow bready malt base. Not super pungent. Taste is much of the same, with the hops coming through the malt, but not overpoweringly so. It’s too bad, because if this was dried out a bit I think it would let the hops shine more and be much better. As it stands it runs watery and overly malty at the same time, with some weird astringency on the finish. It’s still decent, but I feel like it could have been so much more.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with the old man. Aroma is zesty citrus, floral, and grass. Pours blond with nice big fizzy head. Taste is citrus forward followed by light bitter grass and a floral malt. Very light and gulpable but nothing really sets this apart. Not worth how hard it was to get.
