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.
