  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-12-10. Date on can of 12/07/20.

    Pours cloudy with two fingers of thick, off-white foam. Great retention. Wispy but thick clinging lacing.

    Aroma of ripe mango and apricot. A green resin aroma comes out on the backside. Orange and hints of pineapple.

    Taste is more raw hop. Green, grass, weed, resin, and dank. Residual hop burn and/or bitterness in the finish that leaves it open ended for me.

    Body is spot on as is the carbonation. Dry.

    The aroma and body are really nice on this beer. The taste, which is all raw hop, just didn't flow for me. It seems like this down under hops are struggling with the drier and drier growing seasons. A well made beer that the hops let down on the palate. I don't think I would have this again. Enjoy!
