On tap at Max's (from notes).

A: Golden yellow with nice lacing.

S: Very interesting with an almost honeysuckle scent. Vanilla and cinnamon, like cake.

T: Lots of floral citrus. Sweet citrus and grass. Very little pine, really only in aftertaste. Malty backbone.

M: Nice and smooth with little carbonation.

O: Good, but I think I might actually prefer their Aboriginal Gangster.

Growler filled at the Brewery and consumed the same day. Brewed with all New Zealand hops.

Golden amberish in color with a huge bright white head.

Big fruit punch in the nose. White grapes and some citrus.

Taste is kind of like a sweet fruity wine. More sweet than bitter but there is some grapefruit in the finish. The Nelson Sauvin hops definitely give it a more fruit punchy flavor and set it apart from your everyday DIPA. Alcohol is extremely well hidden.

Carbonation was a little lower than normal (might be caused by the way the fill the growlers) with a dry finish.

Overall this is solid and worth a try.

Pours dark gold with a moderate chill haze. Smallish had but the rim bubbles last leaving a cross between webs and blankets for lace.

Starts with a an aromatic earthy nose. There's some good caramel and a touch of piney hop. Mild alcohol warmth.

The initial sip is soft, almost creamy. The very bitter hop takes over completely, dominantly, and overwhelmingly. This is extreme as the brewers intended. Featuring New Zealand Hops, this beer gives a grassy, nearly farmhouse feel. (it is not a Farmhouse beer.). All hop in the lingering aftertaste. Not much oil to the body despite the notable alcohol warmth on the tongue. Good carbonation.
