3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark gold pour with a soft off-white foam. Looks nice. Strong citra hop flavors - floral and citrus - but balanced with some earthier hop flavors. More rounded than the one hop citra brews I have had. Grapefruit pith. Lime zest. Tangelo pips. Sage. Juniper. Parsley. Dry but has some light malty caramel notes. Finishes a bit harsh, but is very well constructed.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a small white head on it. Nose is quite hoppy and bitter, with a fair amount of spicy herb elements to it. Taste is decently bitter and quite dry, yet smooth and satisfying on a hot day. I quite like it.
