Draught @ the brewpub. Aroma is rather nice and fruity with pineapple juice and tropical fruits. Flavour has tropical fruits, pineapple juice and menthol. Finishes with mild harsh herbal bitterness. No signs of lager here - perhaps slight grainy tones. Delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a big rocky white head that towers over the top of the glass without leaking or dripping. Huge fresh pine and garlic nose, with heavy wet grass and bright piercing herbal notes showing. Very flashy and attention getting nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and soft lemon on the mid palate. Hops are less prevalent on the tongue than the nose, but the grassy and herbal notes show well. Pleasant herbal finish. Really good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Pours a nice well hazed golden pour, a dulled glow, touches of orange, golden glow in the body. Frothy brighter white head atop laces well, films as a nice layer. Aromas are well hopped, lemons and florals, some grass and gentle bready and doughy sweetness. Some tangerine, growing fruity hops. Earth, and some straw. Initial is really hoppy, nicely bitter with grapefruit, florals, some grass. Some fruity Amarillo fruit, gentle gumball, and soap. Oranges, tangerines, firmly assertively bitter hops up front. Middle is some fruit, crisp bready malts and straw, mellow sweetness but a big fruity hop presence from that girthy hop load. Firmly bitter and hoppy as we round the corner into the backend, melon and bitter florals, grapefruit, touches of resiny pine, dry earthy florals, good bitterness lingers on. Touch of heat, this offers some bigger ABV, mellow sweetness. Well hopped and tasty offering. Glad to finally get to try this.
