Been waiting a while for this one. Hard to get, even living in Chicago! Missed out on the growler fills at the tap room, so this one is from a 22oz bottle, 4 days fresh, $9.99. Poured into a Hop Leaf Tulip glass.

Appearance: Copper/amber, deep and clear. 2 fingers off-white cream head. Good retention and lacing. Can't ask for a lot more.

Smell: As good as it gets. Exploding with citrus. Orange, mango, lemon, pine, a touch of pineapple. Floral and grassy as well.

Taste: Honestly, a bit of a letdown after that amazing nose. I've heard this is a completely different beer from Daisy Cutter, but if you can't taste the original in this, you haven't drank enough Daisy Cutter. Heavy on the bittering hops, but not much hop flavor, sweetness, or malt. No alcohol at all though, and quite easy drinking.

Mouthfeel: Moderate to high carbonation. Smooth and medium-full body. Dry on the finish.

Overall: This is better than Daisy Cutter, which is quite good to start. Really easy drinking and quite tasty. For bitter, dry beer lovers, this is a nice treat. However, for $10, I think I'd get a 4-pack of Daisy Cutter pints before buying this bomber again. Now a $20 growler fill of this stuff? Completely different story.
