Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.
6.8% Alc/vol. 76 IBUs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Fairly thin head, no more than half a finger which does not have much retention, in turn the lacing is weak with minimal stick. Filmy liquid, translucent, traps light inside to create a glow to the base yellow color, touch deeper orange at the core, you can see a tiny bit of bubbles, no noticeable particulate inside. The nose is kind of arch, bitter and grassy, very hops dominated, pepper, sour bread crust, dried grapefruit rinds, conjures up sufficient honey, pine sap and caramel to take a lot of sting out of it, more grainy than fruity, moderate dash of apricot, peach, pear fruit, on the whole it covers what it needs to, could be cleaner/fresher as well as separate out the scents better. Full-bodied, getting on heavy, the carbonation has a grinding, slow churn and it basically clings to the mouth pores rather than scrub. More sweetness here in the pineapple, peach, nectarine fruit as well as grapefruit, orange citrus. However, its dry mouth feel is complete. Plenty of grassy hops, the pepper, oil, and bread crust keep the malt, cocoa submerged. It is not unbalanced, simply too dense to refresh. Has flavor, not hot, and what’s there finishes long. No real complaints, maybe gets lost in the pack.

No freshness dating

Pours a semi-hazed honey color with crazy pearl colored head ( 5 fingers+ ). Haze never clears, crazy head retention & lacing

S: Straw, hay, doughyness, hints of infection

T: Pears, grassiness, lemons & green appleskins up front. Lemons, hay & pears as this warms, a little pineapple as well. Finishes slightly citrusy & acidic with some grassiness, just got messier & ended up being a drainpour

MF: Overcarbonated, coarse with medium body. Gets thinner as this warms, okay balance, turns a little acidic

A disappointment. I will probably not buy any more from these guys. May not be fresh, but presents more as a possible infection or just plain old mediocre beer. No freshness dating, ugh. Looking at other reviews, I got to think maybe this beer is just too far from its point of origin...
