Tap at Salted Pig. Pours clear, light amber with thick, rocky foam. Great retention. Great lacing. Nose is candy corn, butterscotch, thick toffee. Taste is powerful nutty, sharp bitterness. Heavy ibu intensity. Moderate alcohol sweetness and bite. If this is their lighter body offering, please Lord don’t sent me the heavy version.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, big pine, a bit of pineapple, some earthiness. The taste is almost like sculpin with a crazy variety of bitterness and fruity citrus. Delicious.

Tap beer offered via lord hobo courtesy. Notes of dank grapefruit and resin. Peculiar grapefruit pulp. A touch soapy. Moderate to high bitterness. Hop forward to be sure. Drinks good in small doses but a bit astringent in larger samples.
