3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Groveland Tap. Pours an orange color with medium head. Aroma is large and rotund. Flavor is hop juice in a glass, resin, citrus, pine like, fresh. Pretty substantial malt backbone to back it up, toasted roasty biscuity malts in here as well. What strikes me most about this beer is how light and fresh the hops are, you can really tell that this was brewed the way it was. Well done.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Stub & Herb’s!!! First pint off the freshly tapped keg. Massive white head on the pour and a rich amber color! Citrus hops on the aroma and an incredibly bitter aroma with a thick hoppy resin finish. If you enjoy bitter beer, the finish on this one is incredible. Omar sat down to chat and said the hop bill average out to about $100 a keg!!! Soooooo worth it!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Roat Osha. Brownish red in color, not much head because of the pour. Very hoppy aroma, smelled a lot like tangerine to me. One of the best beers I’ve ever smelled. Flavor was more mild than I expected, sweet and tangy and still very hoppy with a nice lingering bitter finish.
