Like a super version of Algonquin. Dank and piney hops with a touch of citrus rind. A bit too much sweetness for my liking.

Draft at Jerry’s/Division Crawl. Amber with good, frothy, beige head, decent legs / Bright nose of cut pine, weed, citrus, caramel / Full body, malty, sweet and somewhat syrupy, big hop bite but still not quite up to the sweet malts, with bitter finish / Big flavors of caramel, toffee, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, cut pine / I little sweet for me as compared to the best, but still a fine brew.

On tap at Apex Bar in Portland, OR. Colour...clear, garnet-amber with no head. Nose...redolent of hop resin and pine tar. Palate...sweeeet! More citrus than on the nose and loads of tropical fruit that allows the bite of the hops to push through. The boiled sweets amble through the palate as does some fruity frosting and it all works very well together!

I have had this many times but never rated it. The most noticable characteristic is the the fresh cat pee aroma from the citra hops - love it. Also aromas of mango and grapefruit. My favorite haymarket beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at Haymarket. Served in a 12 oz. goblet.
A: Pours a dark amber color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly leaving behind some sticky sheets of lace.
S: Piney and citrus with a malty sweetness through out. Some orange and melon notes with faint hint of resin.
T: Absolutely delicious. Bursting notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Grapefruit, orange rind, and lemon zest. Pineapple and melon with some mild grassy notes and a little piney bitterness. Great malt backbone with some sweet bread and cereal grain flavors. Both are definitely sweet.
M: Medium bodied with a sweet finish and medium carbonation level. Highly drinkable.
O: I could crush glass upon glass of this stuff. It was sweet, but I really enjoyed it and the hop profile is down right delicious.
Serving type: on-tap
