4.55/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Big thanks to harrymel for this growler of exceptional goodness!

Pours a clear golden with a topper of thick foam that rises four fingers.

What a yummy smell. Neutral sweet, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon, mango, honeydew melon. Enticing beyond belief.

The taste doesn't diappoint. It is all the flavors of the nose, bright and clean and balanced. The sip ends with just a hint of herbal bitter drying out the citrus perfectly.

This is where the beer shines. Very light on the palate, yet chock full of hop resin, something that seemingly is impossible. Low/med. carb. and a killer clean finish provide just the mouth to showcase a stellar cavalcade of flavors.

Defintely an astoundingly delicious beer, and I give it my highest recommendation along with my deepest thanks to a wonderful trade partner.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer is served on tap/draught. It has a golden yellow/gold pour with a small white head. Aromas consist of a floral citrus/grapefruit blend. This taste begins as it smells with a piney and bitter aftertaste. A hint of orange can also be tasted. Overall smooth and balanced

Serving type: on-tap
