  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. No date on can but purchased the day it was released at the beer store.

    Pours cloudy with a single finger of white foam; nothing special. Average retention with some simple lacing.

    Aroma is tropical fruit, dank, a bit of herbal/grass. Not really sweet. Tropical fruits are mango and pineapple.

    Taste is a bit more adventurous, inviting, and exciting. Coconut, cedar, mango, pineapple, and sweet. No grassy notes. Finishes clean and smooth, only hints of bitterness which could be green hop burn.

    Medium body with about the same amount of carbonation. Some juiciness before it dries.

    The taste of this beer really helps to elevate the nondescript aroma. If they could balance the aroma to be as enticing as the taste, Color Scheme would be a grand slam. Would definitely have it again. Enjoy!
