ClarkVV (7051) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Can drunk 3/21/17 and on draught at the brewery, 3/25/17.johnnnniee (4459) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Lightly hazy, brass-golden body is topped by a large, well-retained, white head.
Dry pineapple, spicy galaxy-like notes and even some sweet and succulent cherry-mango juice-like character. A very cool mix of hops though I haven’t fully wrapped my head around either. The bravo seem to be a mix of azacca and amarillo, having less wood and grapefruit than either while the comet are like a juicy galaxy without the pine. It works well here on the soft, honey-like malt backdrop with no twang, booze or flaw.
In the mouth it’s only lightly juicy but very drinkable with tangerine, meyer lemon, cherry and mango notes dispersed across the light biscuit and honey character of the malt. Low bitterness but a soft texture and engaging carbonation give it a very good balance and crispness on the finish. Lovely as usual.
Can from Colonial Spirits.
Slightly hazy deep yellow color with a decent sized long lasting tightly bubbled bone white head that persists. Beautiful resinous pine and juicy tropical fruits on the nose. Faint sweet bready malt underneath. The flavor is more earthy grassy resinous than the aroma suggested. Somewhat bitter lingering in the finish. Certainly quaffable!

Poured from can dated 3/11/17 batch 45 light golden orange with a nice quickly vanishing white head. Aromas of floral notes resin citrus pith grass. Taste is floral grass scallion grapefruit pith and a balanced bitterness. Nice.
