3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Crimson American Grill. Shaker glass. Pour hazy golden, nice lacing. Aroma of skunk, grass, light pine. Taste is very malty sweet and very hoppy bitter at the same time. Alcohol is very noticeable. Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky and boozy mouth feel. Finishes with doses of malt, white grapefruit, lemon and grass and booze. This isn’t bad but it seems like a clash of sorts in a glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear gold with a creamy medium white head...nice lacing. Aroma has a bit of sweet maltiness beneath juicy citrus and a slight herbal note. Flavor follows suit...nice herbal bitterness creeping through citrus and apricot notes. Mouthfeel is medium / full and the finish is dry and herbal. Hides the big ABV nicely.
