3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: muddled & hazy, unfiltered orange body with a foamy & somewhat soapy white head that survives as a thick collar for a while. Aroma is true to its name; loads of dank, pungent hops, fruity, citric, & pretty damn sticky with a faint bready malt back-end. Taste is straight from the dope sack, pungent & oily with pine, resin, leaves, & a finishing herbal note. Citric character is lighter but still very noticeable, especially mid-palate. Nice bitter bite, crispy dry finish with only a light kiss of malt. Another tasty & hoppy brew from Shorts.
