3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Huge pineapple and citrus notes in the aroma with a dark resiny finish. Reminiscent of tar but not necessarily in a bad way. The taste is tropical and citrus hops with a bitter finish. That tar note is here also, and this time it is offensive. Medium bodied. Weird beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a lupulin-laden montage of grapefruit, tangerine, guava, pineapple and mango with underpinnings of biscuit and resin. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. Toffee and juicy, citrusy, resiny hops are the foundation of the medium bitter flavor. Finishes crisp and bittersweet… and the bitterness lingers on and on. Bottle courtesy of phaleslu!

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2010 Sample at The Royale in St. Louis as part of "The Funk" Tuesday beer tasting. This beer pours a clear amber color with a medium thick foamy light beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Piney hops aroma with some malt notes. Medium body with a moderately bitter piney hops taste along with flavors of caramel malt and grapefruit. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.
