Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.
A: This one is hazy, light copper in color, with only a bit of amorphous white foam floating on top - no true head. Minimal visible carbonation.
S: Tropical fruit, grass, orange, caramel malt.
T: Tropical fruit and dank bitter grapefruit hop flavors primarily. These very nearly overwhelm any flavor from the malt - maybe a bit of bready malt if I really use my imagination.
M: Nice mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation but tingly from all the hops. No alcohol presence. Bitter hang that lasts.
O: Good, but for my preference it's overly bitter with no sweetness as a counterpoint. That being said, I did enjoy it & would have it again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into HF stemware
A-Frothy white head with some mild retention. Thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of glass. light golden hazy beer.
S-Aroma hits as soon as the growler was opened. Aroma is strong and is a precursor of things to come. Lots of sweet smelling hops. Tropical fruits. Peach, oranges, mango. some grapefruit and faint pine
T-not as sweet as the nose at least at first but may change as it warms. Peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime, some bitterness. flavors really pop as there is something about the beer that makes the flavors very bright and upfront. some maltiness to keep the hops in check. Bit of a bitter finish with some lingering pine and bitterness
M-medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. leaves you with a mouthful of flavor
O-strong showing here easy to see why this breweries beers are in such high demand
Serving type: growler
