4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Skunk pussy bomb. Lots of big tropical fruit flavours. Light body but hugely slam able. Not as well produced as the modern times wheat beer, but still an excellent session IPA.

16 oz can. It pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a huge amount of stanky hops. Grass, citrus, touches of diesel, onion and grapefruit. The flavor is super dry and grassy with big citrus hop intensity. Light, dry neutral crackery malts. Strong bitter finish. A really potent session ipa.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 hazy gold, large bubbled puffy white head. Awesomely fresh grapefruit and biscuit nose, pleasant and lightly oily with paper and honey hints. Attenuation and balance reminds of a more dank and oily Maine peeper while the fruit of a really fresh sculpin. Large and pillowy palate with soft carbonation accents oily pine and grapefruit hints, fruit notes reminiscent of fresh sculpin, clean in the sticky finish.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Re rate: so, so, dank and bold. The palate is gnarly!
Intense, dank citrus aroma with a sweet, hoppy cracker taste. Drinks like super crafted IPA. Pizza Port is straight killing it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that has fair retention and good lacing. The aroma is grapefruit with a bit of cat piss. The taste is dominated by the grapefruit with more cat piss set in a neutral malt base. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Decent brew, went down very easy too--it really is sessionable.

Several cans shared by GT2 during the rbwg weekend. Thanks bro. These were less than a week old and you could tell. Fantastic hop nose and flavor for a session ipa. Nicely dry without being too overly grassy and herbal as these beers can get.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared by GT2 on the bus one day at RBWG. Pours a clear, pale gold with a small white head. Notes of lemon citrus, grass, florals, straw- a hint of pale malt, but really almost no malts at all. So light and clean, it’s almost watery. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Perfect for a super hot day, float trip, or whatever. But there are other session IPAs that have a little more character.

Can shared at RBWG 2014 Late Night tasting - Asheville. Very tasty stuff. Great balance. Plenty of dank hops in here, some grapefruit. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pithy citrus hop finish, moderate balancing pale malt sweetness. Solid.

Big thanks to GT2 for bringing this back to the east coast for me!!! Stunning pale gold pour with a gorgeous light frothy white head. Nose and flavor are both subdued but lovely, with pink grapefruit, tangerine, pine, hay, and lemon. Not quite as juicy and vibrant as I was thinking this might be, but still very good and in the same echelon as Founders All Day, etc. Nicely done.
