Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, orange , hazy color with 5-to-6 fingers of rocky, off-white head. Tons of streams of bubbles coming up around the glass. Very good foamy lacing along the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled wet Cascade hops, Columbus hops, caramel, soapy pine, light crayon, faint mango, orange zest, floral hops and slight grapefruit juice. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted much different than the nose and the much different wasn’t better. Got vegetable hops, buttery earthy notes, onions, wet Cascade hops, caramel, honey, bitter mango rind, Citra hops, light floral hops and Columbus hops. Buckling bitter finish on the tongue. (Taste - 3.50)

Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, astringent, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.25)

Not a big fan of this beer. Too earthy and too much butter veggies. (Overall - 3.50)
