Rather hoppy with loads of grapefruit, but still some complexity in taste and aroma. Easy drinkable but I can understand why some will call it hop juice

I’ve heard from sommeliers in wine that the cooler the bottle is, means worse wine. In this case it’s true, the bottle is way better than the beer and I was utterly dissapointed with this very unbalanced hop orgy without direction or idea.

Tap at Craft Sukhumvit, Bangkok. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is weedy hop, citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a slight, woody hop, light floral palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Suttree (6046) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Man, what a trainwreck of a name there. Also, it was a messy gusher. Smells crackery, toasty with a touch of pine. Taste is piney hops and toasty malts.
