Mini was growler was poured into a large tulip glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a billowy head that reduced to a thin layer. Nice frothy lacing when the head reduced. It is a hazy golden straw yellow with a little clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. More frothy lacing down the glass as the beer wad drank.
Smell: Bready and sweet pale malts, yeastiness, orange peel, lemon, grass, tangerine, spicy, apples, and pear.
Taste: Lemony, orange peel, tangerine, bready and sweet malts, vanilla, spicy, peppery, yeasty, some apple and pear.
Mouthfeel: Chewy, spicy, refreshing, tart, medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, and a little dry.
Overall: A nice and refreshing APWA. Mini growler is gone and hopefully the brewery has more.
Serving type: growler

A - Served on tap in a Trillium pub glass. The beer arrived with about a finger's worth of bubbly head. Not much retention. Not much lacing. The beer is a light straw color, little bit of copper or orange. Lighting wasn't great in the bar, so not quite sure. It looked pretty good though.
S - Fresh hops carry the day. Light citrusy notes, very little malt presence.
T - Opens up with the fresh hops and follows the nose. Very pleasant. Light citrus. A little bit of lemon as another reviewer has mentioned, but mostly just the flavor that I equate with hops. Little to no tropically sweet flavors. Then boom. Bitterness. It's like I got hit by a truck and gained amnesia. All I remember is overwhelming bitterness on the finish.
M - Very nice, nice cushy feeling on the swallow. Medium bodied. The bitterness really clings to the tongue on the finish though.
O - This is pretty much the most bitter beer I've ever tasted. And not in a good way. There were really nice flavors up front, and then they just flat vanished in never-ending waves of bitterness. Lots of good points to this beer, but ugh, bitterness needs to be toned down.
Serving type: on-tap
