4.18/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a nice not quite crystal clear golden straw hue with a one finger head that faded to leave a thin blanket and some creamy lacing.

S - Aromas of juicy tropical fruits, tutti fruity like with absurd amounts of pineapple and mango, tangerine, Clementine. Not really getting the biscuit malts that I'm used to though. Regardless this smells delicious.

T - Taste is a fun combo, I get the malty cracker of a kolsch and then an assault of tropical fruit, big big Nelson notes going on here. Tasty pineapple and mango with nice citrus. Very fruity and refreshing.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, alcohol hidden, super drinkable.

O - Overall this beer was a fun one. A kolsch inspired beer with Nelson hops, tasty, though not really a kolsch. Just call it a hoppy German pale lager.

Serving type: on-tap

4.53/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Sprang pours a hazy yellow with a small, creamy white head on top. The foam fades quickly leaving lines of lace on the glass. For a Kolsch this beer is awfully cloudy.

The aroma is loaded with tangerine and orange citrus with some dank tropical fruit, pine and grass mixed in for good measure.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth, creamy with mild carbonation. The flavor is loaded with tangerine citrus, lemon rind, and mango. Bready wheat comes through in the background. It finishes a bit dank with a touch of peppery spice. Grassy bitterness finishes off the flavor. Once gone the dank fruit, tangerine and tangerine citrus lingers on the palate.

This is a fantastically delicious beer. It's a terrible example of a Koelsch, but a great example of a full flavored, sessionable IPA.

Serving type: growler
