  • Had on tap at the brewery.

    Pours slightly hazed with a finger of almost white foam. Retention and lacing are minimal.

    Aroma is of citrus and pine resin hops. They are really nice here. Sweet caramel malts are there for balance and the backbone of the beer. I thought I got hits of toasted notes here and there also.

    Taste is sweet up front with caramel. Next comes a transition to toasted flavors and citrus hops. Citrus is strong in the end with pine playing a supportive roll but lingering into the finish bringing on a strong bite.

    Light end of medium body with average carbonation. Of course it finishes dry with all the hops.

    This is a solid offering. I am sorry I haven't had the chance to try the other 52 offerings if they approach this offering. The bitter end isn't that strong that it takes away from an ease to drinking. Enjoy!
