3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Super hazy/chunky yellowed-brown with a giant, light tan head. Big pine cone aroma with sweet grapefruit and orange rind - generally heavy on the citrus fruits but with a definite spruce front end. Heavily bitter flavor, one that grows slightly in intensity through the flavor profile, will a little white malt backbone, but don’t kid yourself - this is hop centric, big time. A bit of white pepper in the finish, which ends just a touch watery (which, surprisingly, is a bit refreshing).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 11/02/14. The pour is a hazed orange yellow golden with a well formed light tan head. The aroma is dank resin, rounded citrus fruit and floral. The taste is peanut shells initially, then opens to floral, bitter resin and finishes with grass. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and dry floral grass finish. Smelled better than it tasted, perhaps not so fresh.
