3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber pours with a near clear gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up soft cantaloupe, thin grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine with some malt sweetness. The taste delivers a nice blend of pineapple and grapefruit and bitter tangerines. It becomes only faintly juicy with malt sweetened hops before a firm level of hop bitterness takes over. Pretty solid brew but the bottle I just bought isn’t in the best shape.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is onion and garlic stank with some grapefruit. The flavor is the same. Pretty oniony and spicy with lighter garlic notes, good pale maltiness with hints of honey. A bit sweet with some minor tropical fruit notes. Clean. A bit full bodied and a tad sweet for my tastes, but otherwise very interesting and tasty.
