3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Al’s of Hampton. I had the regular version and a double dry hopped version from cask. First is the double:poured a cloudy orange pour, barely any head, small lacing. Aromas of vanilla, pine, orange, pineapple, and other restrained hop notes from the cask. Easy drinking since it was on the cask but lacked the bite and carbonation needed for this style. The regular version was better. Brighter, and more vibrant, it also was more tangy and funked out. I enjoyed the beer, not crazy about it though.

On tap at the AC Beer Fest. Pours an orange amber color with white foam head. Aroma of citrus, pine and heavy caramel. Sweet sticky caramel taste with that hop hit and sweet citrus and caramel notes on the finish. A big malt backbone and with dank hops. Delish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dayumm, this is tight. 16 oz can. Crystal clear copper color and white head that recedes quite fast. Tons of resin and pine. Balanced very well with sweetness but still a hop assault. Surpisingly awesome. 8% is stealthy. Flavor profile is nearly very similar to georgetown superchop. $16/4-pack is too steep. Im not deducting points because Whole foods couldnt figure their shit out so they gave me my single can for free.
