3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of my HonkeyBra. Badass can design. Pours a bright orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is packed with citrus and pine. What a wonderful aroma. More citrus, grapefruit pulp, pine, and earthy flavors flowing through. A superior ipa. And the fact that it’s canned makes it even more badass.

Had this tap during Day One of CCBW at Brixie’s. $4 pints as part of their special. Served in a shaker pint.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a solid white head forming on the pour. It leaves cascading waves of lace down the glass.
S: Nice sticky and piney hops. Bursts of light citrus and sweet dough malts.
T: Sweet berry and citrus fruit hops, more bready and sweet malts. Lots of pineapple and a nice piney finish.
M: Medium bodied, a little sticky, with a nice medium carbonation and some sweet and piney fruit on the finish.
O: Great balance between bitter and fruity hops and sweet bread malts. This reminded me a lot of Two Hearted which is never a bad thing.
Serving type: on-tap
