Lukaduke (2112) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Growler from brewery. Pours an deep orange golden color with just a touch of rising foam around the edges. A nice big hop filled nose with ripe tangerine, citrus and a bit of fresh grass. On the palate it balances out nicely with the same juicy fruit that is apparent in the nose but a punchy bitterness and light touches of spicy earthy malts drags out the finish and begs you to take another sip !
