Prufrockstar (1901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Can and a half at home. So apparently this is a single hop series, and unlike the zythos monstrosity (who the hell even knew that was a hop name, and not the name of some ancient deity?), this is delicious. Cloudy gold-ish pour with frothy white head; good retention, nice lacing. Aroma explodes with citra -- lots of dank citrus, grass, tropical fruits and stone ground mustard. Taste is great -- moderately sweet, huge hop flavor, medium bitterness. The kind of beer that invites crushing (which invites regret, because 9%). Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: Im impressed. The only thing that I dont like is the $18 / 6-pack price. I probably wont buy another 6er based on the price point, but Im going to enjoy whats left of this one.

Penus (9) - - JUL 8, 2016 does not count
First impression in a nice aroma of grapefruit & skunky hops. Grapefruit cuts to the front of the taste, and orange not far behind. The finish is lively, dancing on the tongue for a bit. Very drinkable, mild notes of cereal to the malt; beer wears its abv well.,

Draft - Lemon peel and some Skunky notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Sweet and bitter, touch of skunk and citrus rind. Decent.

In a can. Immediate burst of the piney orange hops. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. The bite lingers long after swallowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
