    Three fingers of pure white, creamy foam covers the clear liquid. Very light color. Good retention. Lacing is sticky and thick near the beer level.

    Aroma of ripe mango, grass, melon, and berry. The mango and berry are the most prevalent.

    Taste carries the aroma. Mango, berry, and melon. There is some grass that comes in but late, lingering with a mango and berry slurry in the finish. Hints of bitterness, possibly light green hop lingering.

    Very light body with medium or more carbonation. Dry.

    The beer would be best fit for a hot day when you want several, easy to drink beverage. Good aromatics and flavor of the hops but there is absolutely no malt. I would have it again, especially in the warmer weather. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Brrrrr..... THE CRYO HAS STRUCK AGAIN! This cold-hearted foe is not only the enemy of the Unicorn, but also The Lizard King! The cool and collected Cryo and his army of cold-to-the-bone soliders have raised their icicle swords against the legendary Lizard King. Will the Lizard King win this battle or will he be iced out from a win?

    We took our Lizard King recipe, but brewed this batch with Cryo Mosaic hops instead of Mosaic hops. Cryo hops are hops that have been cryogenically frozen immediately after harvest in a nitrogen-rich environment. This process preserves the hop oils and aromatics resulting in a pure and true-to-hop expression of the hop oils.

    This beer takes on an incredible berry, melon, aroma with floral and rich earthy notes.
