look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Thin pure white head, very even, hardly any larger bubbles, not much stickiness to the lacing, forms a wide sheet which slides down the glass side. The liquid is very cloudy, dark orange at the core and more yellow further out, even with the murkiness there’s a great deal of bubbles rising up. The nose is taut and piercing, very herbaceous and earthy, metallic notes, dried dark bread crusts, curious that it delivers more cocoa and dark chocolate than citrus accents, mild pine, hard to pick out much by way of fruit scents, kind of jabs at you. In the mouth not much changes, full-bodied and sort of foamy in texture with same emphasis on earth, metal, forest floor matter. The white grapefruit finds itself, muttering of dried flowers, still very little fruit, peach and apricot pit. Sour on the whole, not sure where balancing sweetness is supposed to come from, that cocoa and hard caramel isn’t doing it. Its weight is what carries it through the finish rather than breadth of flavors. A candidate for dinner table drinking rather than relaxing sipping on its own.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Murky chestnut sort of color with a beautifully thick, white head. Yeasty aromas at first, sort of homebrew-like, opening up over time to reveal grass, pungent citrus, peach, mango, and passion fruit. Hoppy flavor, more old-school feeling, with spicy pine, tea, lemon, grapefruit, lime, and not much malt. Not overwhelmingly hoppy, just pleasant so. Green, solidly bitter, some trailing spiciness, not super fruity. Medium bodied, sporting a little creaminess. Not bad. Citra seems to be doing the least out of the three "Cs" used here.

Color is auburn, dusty and hazy looking with a 3/4" white head of both large and small bubbles. Aroma is upfront grassy citrus - kind of homebrewy/yeasty. Sweet floral, dank leaves, and fruit of tropical and citrus variety. Taste is brisk, dry, nicely bitter and flavorful. Fruity w/peach and tropical hints of mango and candied pineapple. Grassy and slightly earthy in flavor as well. Mouthfeel is slick-smooth, dry, and appropriately carbonated. Overall not bad. Nicely hopped... It gets better as you get into it, but could also use some refining.
