Bottle... Pours clear and golden with amber highlights and a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a medley of juicy tropical fruits and citrus fruits accompanied by a musky component. Full-bodied and fatty with modest carbonation. The flavor features juicy, sweet tropical fruits, sugar cookies, and bitter citrus rinds. Lengthy, heavily bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: Muddy amber body with orange highlights, mostly hazy with a foamy off-white cap. Aroma loaded with hops; leafy, grassy, resinous, herbaceous, ashy, peppery, & with a largely floral back-end. Notes of citrus peel & bitter grapefruit pith buried underneath. Small hint of toasted caramel. Flavor is bitter, but not as bitter as you’d expect from the whopping 177 IBU that’s listed. Heavy notes of leaves, ashy white pepper, resinous pine needles, grapefruit rind, sugar crusted orange peel, & perfume. Lingers with a bitterness of florals & citrus rind on the back of the tongue; slightly coating mouth feel with a modest resin feel, just shy of sticky. Nice stuff.
