look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Tasted On: 05-10-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from Let's Pour mailorder

A: Hazy, honey-colored beer with a big off-white head. Very good lacing and head retention.

S: Lots of hop aromas; pine, floral and citrus, plus tropical fruits

T: So now things go downhill; after an initial taste of tropical fruit, I start to notice a weird vegetable flavor, like a wild onion. This grows worse with each sip...I really don't like this

M: Medium body; the finish has more off flavors of onion/vegetable, leaving a bad taste in my mouth

O: The beer has great promise in the looks and smell, but the taste was so bad I did not finish the bottle. I've read that Summit hops may be the cause of the onion-y flavors; if so I need to avoid beers that use Summit for flavoring.

Serving type: bottle
