4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy, dark yellow.. Saison looking.. Fresh, fresh, fresh.. Herbaceous, piney, citrus rind, and tangerine dominated aromas and flavors.. Delicate honeyed malt counterbalance rounding out mid-palate and finish, though unabashedly fresh hop dominated. Love the fresh hop layers!! West Coast style all the way! Blind Pig lookout!!!

1L swing top to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks bytemesis). Looks good; a hazy apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; bitter, piney, dank, and zesty hops with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.
