3.68/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Picked up a growler of this at the Whole Foods for $8, when the price is that right, you can't go wrong. Review is from notes taken on 10/19/2012 and poured from the growler to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden and coppery color; starts with a big and full, creamy 2 finger slightly off-white head that fades eventually to a thin and uneven foamy skim and lots of lacing holding tight to the glass; body is pretty clear with just a touch of haze, plenty of carbonation.

Smell: Plenty of hops, and they're citric, mostly lemon and perhaps a touch of bitter grapefruit; definitely a grainy malt bill behind it. Pretty good, and I remember the smell being decent out of the bottle, but I also remember being a touch disappointed with the taste.

Taste: Yeah, it's still not the best, but it's certainly not awful. It's got plenty of bitter hops, but it seems that the bitterness doesn't carry the flavor that the smell would make believe it does -- the citric aspect starts alright with some lemony aspect, but then it kind of fades and I'm left with a more or less, just plain bitter, slightly metallic tinge on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Mouth is decent - carbonation keeps it alive and the body is fairly smooth and creamy; a nice thin, sticky coating is left all over the mouth, holding the bitterness well into the aftertaste.

Overall: Glad it's in the growler because it's cheaper than getting a six pack. It's not bad, it'd probably be a better lawnmower beer. I think a slightly sweeter grain bill and some more flavorful and robust hops would make a world of difference.

Serving type: growler
