3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Full bronze color with fantastic creamsickle head. Sweet, pungent hop aroma heavy with grapefruit and over-ripe fruit, perhaps from Crystal hops. Nice hoppy flavor, with again, grapefruit and the apparent use of Crystal hops. This feels like a ton of IBU’s. Not bad and certainly packs a wallop.

On tap at Safeco Field in Seattle, WA at Mariners game--Poured a light amber body with a medium off-white head. Mildly toasty with a decent malt bill. Sharp piny hops that unfurled into a citrus punch as beer lingered on palate. Easy drinking and rather bitter.
