blew me away, on tap at the brewpub. A great drinkability, smooth. Cloudy yellow and lotsa lace.Full mouthfeel. The hops are there and well malted down. Perhaps others want a palate lashing, but this was smoothie of citrus and carmel with a well integrated finish. I wanted this one in the bottles, not the Seven Seas.

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass.  Beer was a hazy, caramel brown color.  Looks almost iced tea color, but a tad darker.  Two-finger, creamy, light brown head.  Heavy lacing and soft carbonation.

Aroma was heavy pine, light citrus, but also malt, caramel and obviously hops. 

Taste was big bitter hops, pine, light orange and grapefruit, balanced out by malt and toffee. 

Thick, but not quite syrupy mouthfeel.  Beer coats your tongue and lashes you with a long, dry bitter finish. 

Another great beer from a great brewery.  Well done.  I hope they keep this one in the rotation.
