3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden color with orange highlights and a creamy, clinging white head that leaves light lace. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, mint, orange, and lemon are nicely balanced by a grainy tartness from the buckwheat. Taste has a resinous and bitter start that leaves notes of orange, lemon, pine, grapefruit, sage, orange candies, and buckwheat. The finish is hoppy and plenty bitter with the expected interplay of tart citrus and grain flavors. Medium to full in bodied with moderate carbonation.

8oz on draught at Beer Revolution - was so stoked to see this on the menu on a random night here. Hazy orange-brown pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is sweet sweet citrus and honey - mango, peach, vanilla. Taste is an alcoholic hoppy punch, lots of IBUs tempered with sweetness, and a ton of alcohol on the palate, but not thoroughly undisguised. Just a big bold beer for flavour-lovers. Awesome.

Hazy copper pour with a thick white head. Malty and hoppy nose. Nice sweetness followed by a big dose of hops and bitterness. Quite nice, if you dig hoppy barley wines.
