4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
64 oz. growler shared by Rob B. Nice unfiltered, cloudy straw color with massive white head. Aroma is damn nice! Grassy and citrus hops with a straw, dried hay element. The flavor is much the same as the nose with fresh juicy citrus turning into a lightly pine and grassy dry bitterness. Bitterness lingers for a good bit after the sip. It is a little abrasive toward the finish but that is what I like about it. Can’t wait to try the Heavy Mettle I have a bottle of! This IPA turned me on to this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pour is extremely murky, dark golden amber, tight white head. Nose hits you from a distance with a big hop punch. Nose is a bit messy, lots of sugars and malt that aren’t really tight but a huge citrus punch blasts the nose. Taste is the same, malt is very sporadic and unrefined, doesn’t get too sweet but you can tell this is big. Hops really drown out any other flavor, full citrus blast with a hint of tea and a fairly light bitterness for the hop punch. Well carbonated and semi dry finish. Interesting beer, straight up citrus hop heads dream.
