Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours copper amber with a foamy beige head. It’s so hoppy it smells like hippo crap. Med body;foamy carb. Flavor is roasty malt overwhelmed by a lot of hop. It’s very astringent, and seems like citrus and resin. GFS!! Trust me on that.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Cloudy amber ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is of bold, earthy lupulin that presents pungent whiffs of sweaty socks, old stinky cheese and resin… absolutely works for me. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with restrained carbonation. Bitter, very lightly salty flavor with a dab of caramel sweetness sneaking in as the beer warms to around 70 degrees. Finishes bitter, raspy and dry. Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork!
