On tap at Crazy Harry's in Winnetka, CA.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of brown sugar, citrus fruit, candied citrus zest, tropical fruit, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with grapefruit juice, candied citrus zest, and slight tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink even with its high ABV.

Serving type: on tap.

I think fresh hops just made sweet love to dry hops and dried apricots in a pIne forest. Copper and honey, lighty translucent. I had to finish the first pour and grab a new glass to see if the head was really that retentionless. It was. Pretty one dimensional, but very tasty. If you like hops. ...and more hops, this is for you. Not my favorite from knee deep, but solid.

Nose citrus, tropical fruit, herbal, pine, fresh baked bread. Pours brilliant amber under a 2” white foam cap that produces thick, clingy lace. It has a big bourbon palate with a dash of Regan’s Orange Bitter Number 6 and finishes with a slight alcohol burn. Hints of vanilla and butterscotch in the background. Chewy, creamy and delicious.
