4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this on tap at Rubicon in Sacramento. I have no clue when it was, but it certainly wasn’t recently. I found this rating in a pair of shorts. Aroma is very pungent with lots of catty hop aromas. Some sweetness and a little bit of citrus is present. Very aromatic, and somewhat reminiscent of UberHoppy. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a small tan head that leaves fantastic lacing behind. Catty, hempy hop notes present to start, before it becomes rather chocolatey in the middle. Not overly roasted, though. Lightly smokey. Finishes with a balance of chocolate and hempy bitter hops. Unique, flavorful, and well-made.

Draft. Blackish beer with a huge cream/tan colored head. Huge summer fruit/grapefruit aroma.. Grapefruit and pine flavor with caramel, light cocoa and a light toastiness. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with caramel and light cocoa.

Tasted straight from the tank after dry hopping. Thanks, Steve. Dark brown with a huge hoppy nose. Tastes of roasted grain, mild chocolate, and a huge mess of hops with a big dry bitterness to the finish. Hopheads will love this one.
