Enjoyed on tap while up in that area for Thanksgiving, review is from notes.

A: two finger head on a amber and crimson clear body. Nice retention and lacing.

S: Nice hop aroma with lots of grapefruit, lemon and orange peel.

T: more very hoppy flavor with floral, earthy and a bouquet of fruitness. light on the malts. A more interesting hop flavor seems to be provided by the Nelson hops which the bartender pointed out to me.

M: medium body and on the lighter side of moderate carbonation.

Overall: Excellent beer. Very hoppy, light on the malts. Right amount of carbonation and very drinkable. Hope this is still around on my next trip.

Had on tap at Three Floyds during the Zombie Dust excursion. Served in an imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a solid amber throughout with an aggressive two finger head forming on the pour. It sticks around for a little while and leaves splotchy sheets of lace throughout.

S: Caramel and bready malts are most present with some slight orange citrus and a little bit of floral hops at the backend.

T: The hops are earthy and grassy with a mild orange citrus burst. Mild floral notes lead to a caramel like malty sweetness.

M: Medium bodied with an ample carbonation for the style. Drinkability is high.

O: A nice sessionable drink. The flavors aren't too aggressive which allow for multiple pints. A very solid beer.

Quick review.... Zesty, dry with very little head. Since its do dark in here I can't tell much of the color but when I hold it up to the glimmer of light I see a cloudy orange color. Great grassy aroma. The taste definitely holds up even as I sample my friends bee r, dry but definitely not that hoppy. On draft ,a point for 6 washingtons at marys packaged good and community bar.
