4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas. Aroma has orange hop notes as well as some cattiness and hempiness present. Some ethanol is also detected. A few candy sugars do a pretty good job of hiding the ethanol, though. Transparent orange-copper color with a nice frothy off-yellowish head that leaves nice lacing. Spritzy orangey hops present to start, which is followed by a really good and solid malt backbone that has just enough sweetness. Finishes with more citrus flavored hoppiness. An incredibly well-balanced and drinkable ale. It drink pretty good.

Draft at butcher and the boar. Wonderful bubblegummy, hop aroma. Dark gold body. Awesome lace. Tastes a little less strong than 8.7%. A little harsh after a big foot. But pretty good.
