Sampled at the Hawai’i Admission Day tasting. Pours opaque mustard yellow with big white head. The aroma is spicy and citric hops with a very interesting floral and high-alcohol note. The flavor is spicy hops and slight alcohol with a little bit of yeast and a sourish hint. The finish is very floral and leaves a spicy aftertaste. Yum.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Courtesy of Mothman. Pours with a mammoth fluffy, pillowy offwhite head. Aroma of spices and slight hops. A somewhat spicy beer ( spice like clove) with a nice little bite of hops. Dry finish. Poured an opaque hazy orange color. Some sediment present at the bottom of my glass. Not really overly exciting but not bad. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol is somewhat present but not overbearing in any way.

12 oz. Bottle.
Almost a flavor and aroma of perfume.
Not real impressed with this.
Tastes like a rough home brew.
What were they trying to do here?
