32oz “grunt” purchased at Growler Guys in Spokane for approximately $6.
Poured a slightly hazy golden shade of amber, with a good sized, creamy off-white head that receded after a few minutes and left spotty lace.
Piney and citrusy in the nose, in that order.
Pine sap and slightly sweet citrus fruit hit the tastebuds at pretty much the same time. Then there’s what seems to me to be a slight bit of malt flavor that’s not unlike toasted bread, with a tart, grapefruity bitterness that increases until it takes over and finishes out the taste.
Prickly, resiny mouthfeel.
A little bit different, The bitterness sort of sneaks up on you. I like how there’s quite a bit of citrusy flavor without it seeming like a glass of alcoholic fruit juice. I would drink this again.

You know that amber/golden colour we all like in BEER, and especially IPAs? That's this one. It's a bit opaque, and has a more yellow than amber hue. Big white head with good retention and lacing.
The nose is fresh and spicy. There's some nectarine-juiciness that permeates before giving way to a distinct apricot sweetness. Sweet citrus and tropical fruits. Manages to be juicy without the thick sticky sweetness which usually accompanies that (I actually like that thick sweetness, but that's neither here nor there.).
Comes through with much of the same characteristic as the nose: primarily sweet fruits and citrus, though the sweet juiciness gives way to a thinner, colder bitterness. Enough of a malt backbone that it supports the hops running around willy nilly, but no more. Honestly, if I didn't know it was there because of the body support I couldn't pick out much malt at all. Finish takes the theme of juicy fruits tending towards the bitter and runs full tilt into the bitter end. Decent body, carbonation supports but doesn't distract, this is a bit of a pleasant surprise as I picked it up essentially on a whim since I needed something for NBS.
No freshness date (grr! scowl!), but based simply on taste I would imagine it's pretty fresh. Definitely enjoying this one.
