glowing amber, medium white head good lacing. Skunkier nose than Swample, Christmas-wreath aisle paper and earthy mushroom. Front palate is light paper and orange, very cobweb muted profile with plenty of moss, papery bitterness as well. Finishes herbaceous, lightly piney chartreuse esque end, paper my dough end.

Crowler shared by shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Marked "Dry Hop" instead of "Double Dry-Hopped," not that I’m sure either designation matters. Pours a cloudy gold color with a moderate white head that settles into a ring and islands of film while lacing the glass. Notes of citrus fruits, soap, straw, sweet and cereal and bready malts, and some bitter floral zest. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, bready, bitter, floral mouthfeel. Has a fairly big malt component as well as a good dose of bitterness, though not entirely in balance.
