Hazy amber. Cantalope, grapefruit, star fruit, sticky hop. Surprisingly resiny, not a long finish. Decent

This beer is amazing! Depending upon your location this is probably more difficult to get your hands on than Pliny or Heady. Drank fresh at Alpine on draft and brought back a couple of bottles. Don't be fooled by the cloudy pour or hoppy smell, this is one easy to drink beer!
