Picked up at the brewpub meself. The silly cartoon now makes sense, it’s big on malt and on hops. Cloudy with an off-white bubbly head. CItrus aroma, and the dot loace. Big mouthfeel: big bitterness and big maltiness. Above average mouthfeel. Big and bold, hits the mark.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Poured a clear orangish amber with a near white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was pine with a hint of citrus and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor had a strong pine note that was slightly dank with an earthy grain and bread backing.

Co-rated with Scraff...
Very hazy, amber ale with a very small, creamy, white head. Decent lacing.
The aroma is of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, caramel and pine. Lots of cascade hops?
The flavor is nicely bittered from beginning to end. Malt-wise, there are some caramel notes, but overall, to drink this elixir is like chewing on juniper berries and pine cones. Hops, baby! Medium-bodied with an extremely dry mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish.
