2014-09-06: Sample poured at the Kedzie brewery.

Pours clear, bronze-golden with heavy lacing and light carbonation. Smell is very muted, but slightly piney.

Taste is pine and grapefruit, fairly straightforward. Good, but not great.

Mouthfeel is thick and slick. Overall, pretty nice.

A: Copper and filtered with almost no carbonation, 3 fingers of off white beige tinged head with large and small bubbles.


S: Candy, malt, medicine, pine, ripe melon, taffy, fruity with a bit of evergreen.


T: Candy like syrup, then a fruity floral melon and pine mixture hits the tongue, leaving a big bitter hit as well. Numbing Japanese pepper lingers on the tongue. A good amount of sweetness.


M: Thick and syrupy with a numbing finish, medium low carbonation.


O: Got this on at Whole Foods in Chicago, drank it in the burbs of Chicago Aug 15, 2014 after a day of shopping at Chicago Premium Outlets. I first saw it on Chicago beer podcasts like Hopcast, where I got interested in it. Glad to have found it.
