UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 Bomber shared by freaky fred5388. Poured a creamy body of deep reddish amber under a smaller to average sized tight foamy beige head. Aroma has lots of acetone throughout, pineapple, lemon, cherry, touch of molasses. Flavor is just bad, sour for some reason, bad lemon lime soda, old cherry skins, darker toast that is old and nasty. Nasty!!!

Carbonation is soft and mouthfeel is sleek enough. Finishes oddly quenching, barbs of citrus and lingers a brassy pull of bitterness.
