Can. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (kiwi, melon), with notes of rubber/plastic, onion, celery, chemicals/gasoline. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.

Nose is a mix of chemical horrors and nice hops, so it's sad that it's not cleaner. Perhaps a poor strain of Brett is to blame, or just unsanitary brewing conditions. Sourish and dirty in the mouth, so yeah, it's a drain pour unfortunately but I do like the can/bottle designs from this brewery.

On draft at the 11th Street Taphouse in Virginia Beach. The pour is a foggier golden yellow with a thin ring of white head that leaves some soapy lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of malt up front with a light fruitiness that slowly comes in. The tropical fruits and a distinct Brett addition really define the nose. The flavor is a little better. It’s fruity out of the gate, but the Brett and light malt hinder it quickly. It’s got almost a bit of tropical juiciness. The hops fall off quickly and the malts take over. The mouth feel is a little heavier than I’d like with a soft carbonation and a lingering funky hop juiciness on the finish. Not bad.
