Draft at Moriartys. Clear gold pour with an off-white head that left some notable lace. Having immediately after the Hoptologist which feels very similar. This one also has huge floral, resin earthy notes. Less refined - but that?s not necessarily a bad thing.

2/11/15 From bomber dated 12/24/14. Strong pine resin aroma. Very hoppy and not as well balanced as Pliny. Strong with strong aftertaste. Grapefruit and dank tasting. Ok but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber color. White head with quick dissipating head. Big sweet malty nose with lots of tangerines which works well with the sweet maltiness. The mouth is very big with lots of maltiness, but alcohol is relatively well hidden. Stone fruits. Well integrated, but probably could be better with slightly less alcohol. Big tangerine and citrus finish. Yummy stuff.
