12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/23/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, mango, passion fruit, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, berry, cracker, light honey, floral, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, mango, passion fruit, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, berry, cracker, light honey, floral, and herbal//grassy earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, melon, berry, cracker, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent hoppy pale lager style. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle: Labeled as Chillindamos. Golden, toasted yellow pour with a bubbly bright white head that doesn’t last for very lost. Aroma loaded with heavy hop leaves, dirty hemp oil, green onion, wet mango & guava, light grapefruit rind, some dank resins, grass, & a bit of biscuity, buttery malt underneath. Very mild yeast. Crisp, clean flavor. Loads of hops, good mixture of herbal, floral, earthy, citric, & lightly tropical. Modestly bitter, but not over the top. Cracker malts, faint pine, lupulin oils, herbal leaves, white peppery grapefruit rind, light kiss of mango in the finish. Grassy, bready, & herbal with an earthy bitterness than lingers. Dry, light, yet flavorful. Really nice.
