Comes out rocking that usual malt liquor gold with a white smattering head that is gone quicker than liquor off the shelf during a loot and riot. If ever there was a beer that smelled like a medical dispensary, this is the one. So dank, so much pine and other greenery hop similarities going on here, could smell it for days.

I'm not shitting you, this is so easily the best malt liquor of all time. So much hop flavor all over it, hides the alcohol immensely well. So light bodied, yet heavy handed with the hops and alcohol, alcohol you would never know. The hops are a great blend in and of themselves, some regular, some proprietary.

Please make this beer again, this is the ultimate summer beer. Would totally get into some stupid shit if I was crushing this around the pool, by the river, at the lake, on the beach etc. . .

dull golden amber, almost a straw or hay like color. Initially a big fizzy white head formed on top, but quickly evaporated leaving behind nothing but a pale yellow fizzy liquid.

Grainey and musty would be the best way to describe it. Like wet old grass cuttings, or moldy bread. There a slight note of a hoppy touch in there, but the smell was rather unremarkable. It was crisp, with a clean finish, and had a touch of some kinda different back to it, but that was about it.
