3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub several weeks ago. The aroma is quite hoppy with citrus tropical character, and some grapefruit. Light sweetness. No ethanol detected. Moderately hazy orange-golden body with a large, creamy off-yellow head and great lacing. Starts sweet, chewy, and piney. Some citrus grapefruit hop flavors come through in the middle. Nice balance of malts and hops. Tropical mango flavors come through in the finish. Ethanol is extremely well-hidden. Well-balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capitol Beer. Pours hazy light orange with a creamy off-white head that did a little lacing. Aroma made me think of pineapple. Med body. Flavor seems to be citrus and tropical fruit. Certainly on the bitter side. Finishes fresh and fruity. And bitter. Very tasty and drinkable.

On tap at Capitol Beer and Taproom, continuing the awesome trend of debuting beers, thin disappearing head, slight resinous aroma, sweet front and bitter finish. A lot like Hop Shortage, which is a great thing.
