1.3/5  rDev -63.9%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Apperance: - Pours a straw color with almost no head whatsoever.

Smell - Something unnatural in the aroma, like barnyard, which lies underneath floral and pine notes.

Taste - again, something unnatrural, barnyard. Hop bitterness is strong, but is poorly balanced, unless it is supposed to be that flavor

Mouthfeel - disappointed in how watery it is

Serving type: bottle

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta give it up for the increased local flavor, even if that flavor ain't local to me. This stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises buttery biscuit, light orange zest, and a hint of grass. The taste brings in more of the same, with a diminished butter component and a dull grassy bitterness pervading. A hint of dry wheat remains behind just in case. It's one note, played loudly and discordantly. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and drying finish. Overall, though a good idea and a laudable philosophy, the end product just doesn't do it for me, especially with that blunt bitterness that envelops all.

22oz bottle obtained via Local BIF from asmokingoat. Thanks for the opportunity. <Jeremy2002 = bad trader>

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1/2" off-white head above the slightly cloudy golden amber brew. Frothy head lasts and lasts, with coating lace. Aroma is sweet and lemony. Taste starts sweet, but quickly goes citrus in the middle, and closes with some earthy hops character and a somewhat chalky aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, but drinkability is hindered by the flavors that I wasn't really enjoying. Just doesn't all come together for me.
