OK, so, I loved this. This is my dream beer, I would drink it every day if I could, in quantity, so yeah, perfect 5. Here’s what I can tell you about it, from the 2014 canned version, poured into a wide-mouthed glass. This batch is much better than the last batch (last year, I think): Smells of strong citrus, pine and an aroma I can only describe as "sweet", like smelling a sour fruit candy -- it smells sweet but you know it’s both sweet and sour. It pours a radiant golden orange. Very hazy, intimidating, and inviting, if you’re into cloudy beers and such. I am... The taste/palate must be spoken of together. There’s enough carbonation to hit the right fizzy expectations, which lifts the intense but balanced strong citrus and light bready tastes, with a punch of alcohol you feel rather than taste. An amazing melding of hops, malt and alcohol. I can’t tell where the tastes begin and end, from the zigzag different citrus flavors to the malt sweetness and a savory flavor I can’t describe. I can taste the beer an hour later, and that’s a good thing. It’s like Zombie Dust, but made with love and not hate, and more alcohol. Perfect. I hope it becomes a regular offering when the new expansion (BEHIND MY HOUSE!!!!) is fully operational. I heard it’s a 100% Citra hop beer, so I doubt it will be available all year, but maybe more often? And yes, there’s a Star Wars reference here.
