look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Most recently on cask at D&T in Houston. Though I have had a bottle.

A: Pours a hazed golden/copper color. A two finger white head forms that recedes to a ring in a minute. Sticky lace is left behind.
S: Resiny, piny hops up front. Slick, soapy, oily. Some caramel sweetness and toasted malts. Lingering bitterness.
T: Like the nose, resinous, piny, and sticky. Soapy hops, and tastes like ice tea. A Green, leafy taste. Almost veggie like as well. Sticky sweet malt. Caramel and toast, with a lingering bitterness.
M/D: A medium body that is low on the carbonation. Resinous, but somehow thin at the same time. If that is possible. A soapy, and lightly powdery feel as well. Some heat from the alcohol, along with a bitterness that lingers forever. Not something I find easy or enjoyable to drink.

Nothing close to the Prom Am version, which was so bright and clean. This is messy, and tastes old already. Not to mention a lingering nondescript bitterness that I am never a fan of. Blah. (990 characters)

Apparently, this was released yesterday. 32 ounce growler from Growler's.

Dark coppery amber color, clear, beige finger of head plenty lace. Aroma is citrusy, but equally malty with caramel and sweet bread. Taste has a high bitterness, juicy citrus and tropical fruits, subtle sweet malts, pine resin finish, hidden ABV. Creamy feel, full bodied, slick. Overall, quite delicious! (382 characters)
