drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2013
1/5/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Pinglehead?s first bottle release! Mostly clear orange amber pour with a 2-finger soapy khaki head that cuts to a thick ring, sticks, and laces in spotty sheets. Sweet, fruity aroma with banana, bubblegum, sweet sugars, and a touch of alcohol. Sweet sugary entry with bubblegum, pale malts, and a touch of alcohol and corniness. Rich mouthfeel. Nice!
