4.27/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap in San Fran. Super fresh.

A:An orange/gold clear pour with small (1/4 in head)

S: Tropical fruits and sweet citrus on the nose. Little dank-loved it.

T: Hop heavy-light on pine but big on the citrus. Orange/lemon and that mango that gives a tiny bit of sweetness.

M. Light on carbonation but did not detract.

O: Solid local offering. Had some of the Mikkeller contract brews they did that we're well done. Recommended.

On tap at Verdugo Bar in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and slight onion and garlic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great citrus and tropical forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: on tap.

This pours a caramel golden color. I get a light aroma with some mild citrus notes. There’s a full-bodied citrusy dank hop assault with a malty citrus sticky finish. I get that Faction house yeast (?) character, and some minerality-like character on the finish.
