2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Probably would be a good beer with carbonation, but the glass I had was completely flat. Aroma was alright. Earthy and dank hop smell. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was flat. No carbonation at all. The earthy hop flavors came out along with bitter grapefruit and lemon zest. With no carbonation this beer tastes like a cold hop tea and is not very appealing. Would like to try this with some bubbles.
