Served in a pint glass on a recent trip to the brewery.
Appears a golden color with a nice one inch head sitting atop.
Smell is citrusy hops. This smells good. Taste is juicy citrus hops. This reminds me a lot of HopSlam and Stone 10th. This is truly delicious and by all means can hold it's own against either of these two. If not be a head above.
Nice hop profile, clean and refreshing. It took every bit of will-power that I had to order something else besides this while I was there.
This brew is a sneaky 8.5% ABV. It is so smooth it is very sessionable. Be careful it will catch up with you. Luckily I was downing a water inbetween pints.
This is a world class beer from a world class brewery. Highy recommend. If you're at Flossmoor, this is the first thing you should order.

3.9/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Had on tap at FS. Poured to a bright orange-red with a medium thick white head that lingered thru mid-glass and left good lacing. Strong citrusy grapefruit hop aroma with hints of grass, noticeable as soon as the waitress brought the glass. Mouthfeel was full bodied, and tingly, while the taste accentuated the hoppy citrus.

Finish was tastily bitter, with just enough alcohol peeking thru to be warming. A darn good beer.

Poured with a hazy glowing orange body. A 1+ finger white head appeared on the pour but after some time faded to a solid white cap completely coating the body. Leaves spotted lacing throughout.

Smell is full of different aromas. I pick up sugary candy aromas up front. This mainly leads me to think of bubblegum. Then comes the hops. Strong citrus in the form of lemon and orange. There is some pine in the finish along with a earthy aroma that all go together very well.

I really like the taste of this one. There is a mild caramel malt backbone but the hops take the main stage. There is lemon up front followed by oranges and finishing with a spicy pine bitterness.None of the hops overtake the others. They blend very nicely.

Medium bodied and smooth. Has a very nice body considering the abv. Mild carbonation lets all the flavors work through at their own pace. My tongue definately takes a beating.

This is surprisingly easy drinking for a beer with this abv. The mouthfeel helps with the drinkability a lot. It will ruin your palate though so if drinking a few you won't get the true potential after the first.

This is a really nicely made beer. I hope this turns out to be a year around offering. Uses some interesting ingrediants as well. It was brewed with three spices, one slips my mind but the other two were lemon grass and hemp seed.

Slainte!
