Bottle bought at Kihoskh july 2012, shared with esp0r.
Hazy orange body, thick medium white head.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle purchased at Khioskh. I drank it from the bottle, so I can’t say much about the color or head retention. Nose is nice, floral, lightly yeasty with plenty of US hop punch, lime, grapefruit, kumquat. Flavor is mostly the same, lime and kumquat, pine, vegetal, a little kiwi, something a little off though, metallic. Full bodied, bitter finish.

Has anyone ever read all of the gumpf they’ve written about this brew? I couldn’t. But my attention span has been decimated since the dawn of the internet.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This instantly became one of my favorites. A very soft fruity aroma and a taste that just fills your mouth. Not too sweet, nor too bitter or fruity. Just right.
