Hazy golden color with slight white head. Aroma is very nice, sweet with malts and citrus. Taste is DANK, pine with good malt back bone. Has an interesting after-taste that is grassy and almost celery like. Very good, but not what I was expecting.

Can... Pours clear and golden with a tiny, brief, white head. The aroma is a marriage of juicy tropical fruits and melons with a touch of muskiness. Bordering on full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is as bitter as Hell. Even when the beer hits room temperature and all residual sugar surfaces and a restrained element of biscuity sweetness makes a brief appearance, this baby is still heavily bitter. Lengthy, astringent, bitter finish. Can courtesy of newcigarz!

On tap at the brewery. Amberish pour. Bready, mild resin, grapefruit rind, moderately malty. Honestly, I was disappointed given the expectations and popularity. Distinctly average.
