3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from ABV.
Pouring a clear copper with a dense, off white head with excellent retention and very nice lacing, this looks great! The nose opens with a big blast of Cascade hops, citrus, chalky and moderately juicy. Candied grapefruit and citrus are present along with an intense pine oil aroma. Malt is moderate, caramel and bready in nature. The palate opens with an intense, pungent pinesol bitterness and flavor, massively resiny, immensely dank and hilariously over the top. Alcohol and sweetness are noticeable and add an intensity to the palate. Simple syrup, bread, caramel and a little burnt toast are noticeable. The mid palate has some of the citrus and fruit flavors with candied grapefruit, honeydew melon and orange peel. Mildly sweet and quite bitter on the finish, this beer is medium-full in body and softly carbonated. The booze, the bitterness and the sweetness make this a little difficult to drink a ton of. Decent stuff.
