4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Served at Town Hall in a pint glass. Pours a clear, red caramel color with a 1 finger head of ligh tan. Really nice hoppy nose of orange rind with slight pine. The hops profile is apparent in the flavo right off the bat with a slight sweet start that pretty much stays the whole time but you get a building hop bitterness. Bitterness lingers on slightly. Medium mouthfeel. Nice lac as well. WAY too easy drinking!

Tap. Clear amber pour, plenty of lasting carbonation and a very malty/creamy and plenty hoppy aroma. Flavor is also slightly creamy malt, very spicy hops and slightly fruity bitter orange and a little pineapple sweetness on the finish. This is the closest thing I’ve had to Ballast Point’s Tongue Buckler, just amazing!
