Had a sample at Beervana and was pretty impressed so here goes the full review. 12oz. bottle served in my Harpoon IPA glass. Pours slightly lighter than unpasteurized cider with a consistent clarity. Head is half an inch, butter-colored and creamy in texture. Head eventually disperses into a frothy skim with swaths of lacing revealed as the beer is consumed. Nose is malty sweet and expresses citrus rind and an earthy/spicy quality (I feel like it reminds me a bit of Ruination). Taste consistent with nose; however, less sweet and more of an earthy/medicinal bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a prickly carbonation and a trace of oiliness. Overall, not exactly as I remembered it (then again, I had quite a few samples that night), but a promising beer from a relatively new area brewery. Looking forward to exploring some of their other styles.

3.55/5 rDev -7.6%
Pours a two finger lightly-tanned head over a clear light golden liquid. Nice lacing left on the inside of the glass. Smells of pink grapefruit, grassy, pine, lemon, tangerine, tropical fruits.
Tastes piney and hop bitter. Strong rough grassy, baby aspirin, iron, oranges, nectarine. Very drying, astringent acidic, and grass itchy in the mouth. Waxy dry bitter persists deep into the aftertastes and is not enjoyable.
