4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 On tap with James and a small crew at blind tiger, hazy almost murky orange-gold pour. So much grapefruit citrus, tropical pineapple, butter, caramel, and cheese, pine and lots of tropical notes. Awesome mouthfeel, so sweet and refreshing with a nice hop bitter finish at the end. Highlight of the event for me. If it was a little more dry and citrus dominant it would have been epic. Maybe a little too much sugar left behind but still world class. Tried again via growler at Franks, enjoyed this version better then the one at B Tiger. More dryness and more new zealend cheese, thit yoo, thats some thitt

Shred growler at Craft Ale House beer share. Turbid gold pour with white head. Nose was that classic piney and tropical fruity, juicy hop nose. Tasted hoppy, with layered tropical citrus, some funk, spice, and amazing complexity.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at Abbye in Worcester. Pours a messy brownish hazy murky color. Two inches of fuzzy head. Great grape and peach aroma. mouthfeel is light and smooth. Taste is extremely well balanced with zero bittnerness. Slightly creamy, probably due to the fact that it’s not filtered. Lots of peachy mango with other light flavors. Really, really good.
