3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is DFH IPA, slight tropical fruit. Fresh papaya is there but then the rancid garbage papaya sneaks in and takes the cake as the beer warms. This is an example of what BMC tries to do. This beer at first was awesome, cold out of the fridge. As it warms.....eeeek. The taste is tropical fruit forward at first, when cold and some mild bread. As it warms the DFH malt bill comes out and is very pronounced from their IPA line. I guess that is the yeast.

[Canned 12/31/12] Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, toast, tropical fruits, some oxidation. Taste of citrus, toast, orange, tropical fruits, and a semi-sweet finish. Oxidation was surprising given the age.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz can. Pours a hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is wit-like with some tropical fruit and funky yeast and pepper.
The flavor is earthy yeast with light tropical fruits and some peppery spices. There’s some phenolic bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, it’s more yeasty than fruity but a bit phenolic.
