3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly clear for such a heavy beer. A bit tart on the finish. I think I like a Little Sumpin’ Wild better. It seems a little smoother.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2 finger head is very rocky with great retention.. very clear lite orange golden brew.
The nose is immediate and surprisingly pungent hoppy.. citric hoppiness with a great pale malt backbone..
Bitter bite out of the gate with pale malts that melt quickly into an unapologetic citric hoppiness.. some floral hoppiness and minor pine come into play.

I bought this beer at a Fresh Market grocery store in Midlothian, Va 7/29/16. I could not find the bottling date on this until I poured into a glass and held the bottle up into the sunlight!! Code is on the back of the neck of the bottle??? Julian code 166 6 means June 14, 2016! I still don’t understand WHY brewers do this! Do You? Just as easy 6/14/16!!! Pours very clear and with a golden color. Pine,citrus and grassy. A little sweet grapefruit and very hoppy! Semi-dry taste @ the end! Another great tasting beer! Excellent! Beware though this beer is 7.5% alcohol! Can’t taste it and it will sneak up on you!! Enjoy the summer! SEH

Bottle pours a clear golden orange with a one finger off-white head and good lacing. Smells a floral apple pear. Tastes crisp, neither sweet nor bitter, with some unusual fruity flavors. Aftertaste is a but sweet initially, then a little more sour than I prefer. Slightly above average overall.
