Pours with a cloudy, copper colour. Small head with some lacing. First drink explodes with a crisp, citrusy flavor. THis would make a great lawnmower beer on a hot day.

If you’ve ever seen a growing snake firecracker then essentially, you’ve seen what this beer’s head can do. having poured roughly 1/2 of the 22oz bottle into a pint the head began to grow, and grow, and grow until it began to slowly recede, leaving behind amazing, tight-knit lacing. Strong aroma of yeast, citrus and apricot... taste on the other hand has notes of grapefruit, apple and Zinc. While this beer has an awesome scent and a pretty good taste, I was not as psyched as I had expected to be when pouring and sniffing. The carbonation overpowers the mouthfeel... almost difficult to get a sense of this beer as it doesn’t sit on the tongue very long... rather, dances around not leaving much of a footprint. Overall enjoyable but wish it would settle a little more, perhaps at a warmer temp it would settle on the tongue but overall I am just not a big fan of big carbonation.

Excellent AZ Brew. Great color and head. An easy poor, very easy to drink. I ahve enjoyed this beer on top at home (purchased keg through Tops in Tempe), at Papago Brewery and as of late have had a presence at Arizona beer fetivals.
