3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler shipped my way from my beer-o-claus, markwise. Thanks Mark. The growler pours with a somewhat opaque deep copper body (hope haze I hope) with gold hues and supporting a full near white head of foam that leaves behind sheet lacing. The aroma offers up a mix of mango and pine hops and then it gets into a mild buttery diacetyl like sensation. The taste is similar with resiny pine hops ringed with butterscotch and mango like fruitiness. Decent enough with plenty of hop bitterness but whatever that is that seems diacetyl is taking away from the experience.

On draft at Southern, poured an amberish orange color with aromas of pine and feint citrus. Flacours are pine, citrus, light fruit and a toich of bitterness, a solid IPA that weighs in at 8.6%, extremly drinkable, dangerous.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Southern. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is huge citrus, pine, and floral hops with some tropical fruit, and some mild caramel. Flavor is similar- a hop punch. Big bitter citrus and tropical fruit abound with some piney pieces. Medium in body, big in flavor, and huge in taste.
