Split bomber with a friend. Citrus smell. Pours with solid head. Tastes of lemon and orange hops with thick dank sticky feel. Delicious and would buy again without hesitation.

5/3...pours cloudy rusty amber with 1/4 inch creamy white foam. Bold citrus nose, bright and floral. Smooth malty base taste that rolls into a spicy peppery hop bite. Punchy and powerful. Resins. Lemon rind citrus beneath the complex bitter layers. Really good.
