4.85/5 rDev +21.9%
Growler from the brewery poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is dark dark red/amber, very cloudy and opaque, with a small white head with good retention and minimal lacing.
Smell is awesome! You get hops right away, very fruity, almost bubblegum/grapefruit hops in the nose. They say this is brewed with simcoe and an "experimental hop variety", so not sure which the melon-y bubblegum is coming from. Good malt presence coming as well.
Taste is great as well. A sweet malt backbone with the fruity hops as described above. For how strong this beer is (7% ABV) it is masked well. Medium bodied with moderate bitterness.
Overall, I would definitely drink this again. This was my third growler from the brewery so obviously it was good! Hopefully they brew this one again sometime soon.

4/5 rDev +0.5%
Growler obtained at the brewery. Served in various DC Brau glassware. Beer is dark red with a tan head, moderate carbonation, decent retention, minimal lacing.
Aroma is apple-y mild malt and a rough CTZ hops sort of earthiness. Nice.
Beer is medium in body, grinding hop presence, moderate bitterness. Nice malt backbone. Earthy mild pine hops. I'd have it again.
