Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe from a can with date of 07/27/20. Pours cloudy/hazy with a huge billowing, white foam. Rocky top and frothy as it meanders back, slowly to the liquid. Semi-thick lacing that leaves beautiful rings around the glass. Aroma is fantastic: pineapple, mango, orange, and sweet. Papaya and light herbal come through late. Taste of sweet orange and mango. Herbal/green and lots of resin, especially late producing some bitterness and a burn in the back of the throat...read more

Full Earth

8.8 by scot have another Full Earth by Old Nation Brewing Company

Poured from a can purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. There is a date but it is smudge, making it illegible. Pours cloudy with half inch of white foam that has minimal retention and lacing. Aroma is dank, ripe fruit, lemon, lime, orange/tangerine, and hints of grapefruit. Herbal and pine join as it warms. Taste follows the nose completely, making for a complex flavor profile. The flavor is more of a melding of flavors: ripe fruit, lemon, lime, tangerine, herbal, and grapefruit. Medium body...read more
