3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bavarian Lodge. This draft starts off with a big citrus nose, but there's also the pine of the usual Northwestern pale ale. The beer is pretty hazy, though; a light slightly brassy color, with a fluffy IPA head. The beer is actually served as bit too chilled for a craft brew, which usually a mistake that the Lodge doesn't make.
It does immediately show a "thicker" palate than usual, owing to its 8% alcohol by volume. But "juicy?" I think it's still in the same highly bittered style as a NorthWEST IPA, definitely showing some Citra or similar hop. Very likeable in a hophead way, but I guess I need some more beers in this style to determine my baseline for "juicyness."
Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a nice white head and beautiful lacing. Aroma of pineapple and danky hops. Taste is is of sweet juicy citrus with a underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Great Beer !

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2018 On tap at Eagle Street. Slightly cloudy golden pour. Aroma is big citrus hops. Taste follows, agressive hops and citrus but really well done. Frank (4275) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2018
This stuff is hoppy as hell and I enjoy the juicy texture but I'm kinda not crazy about whatever hop they chose. It's got a strong, sharp, earthy pine resin kind of quality to it that just doesn't work all that well for me. It's also a touch on the sweet and sticky side for my liking. It's a reasonable effort, I suppose. Ibrew2or3 (9062) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2018
12oz can, courtesy of Beau, pours with near clear gold body that supports a nice white head of foam. The aroma offers up blend of grapefruit, tangerine, guava, pineapple and honeydew. Yes. Smells nice and fruity. The taste delivers honeydew and grapefruit nuanced pineapple flowing into a modest degree of soft thin honeydew. Toward the finish a mild oat malt woody yeasty sensation bubbles to the surface. Solid brew.

Clear gold pour with nice big white head. Big fruity nose that swings towards tropical. Flavor to match that just wets the mouth.
