3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the newer location, 5/5/16.
Strong clarity in this pale golden beer with ample carbonation and a strong brass tint. White head atop is medium-sized and wispy.
Yellow fruits kick off the nose with pineapple in the lead. Nectarine, apricot and such growing lightly resinous with softly prickly pine and white grapefruit taking over towards the finish. All the while, light honey and plentiful cracker-like malts sit in the background. Notes of cucumber, dill, black pepper and green, grassy vegetation are quite apparent. Alcohol pretty well-concealed, though thereís some minor heat on the end.
Similar to their other beers, thereís good attenuation, but some sticky/syrup character leftover mimicking rich honey. The carbonation is moderate and fairly engaging and bitterness isnít obnoxious. Lots of cracker/biscuit and whitebread-like malts show through, almost outdoing the hop flavors on the finish. Some peach, pineapple, pine and grapefruit linger, with a strong overarching grassy element. Eh. Itís not a bad beer or anything, but I guess Iíve just been ruined/jaded by living in New England.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 64oz growler.
Aroma is fairly malty with some toasted bread, caramel, and cracker notes. Medium hop notes with a strong dank character to it. Onions, garlic and some lighter citrus and pine resin.
Pours a fairly clear, copper amber color with medium sized, slightly off white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers thicker on this edges. Light lacing and medium length legs.
Flavor has a medium light malt note with some toasted bread, caramel and dark cracker notes. High amounts of bitterness. Lots of dank onion hop notes but a bit more grapefruit and pine resin than in the aroma. Some light alcohol spice in the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall, I am not a fan. Iím not sure if my tastes have changed or if the beer has changed. Itís way maltier and the hop profile is way more dank than I remember.
