Look I put that dang thang in that there black coozie and set it on my tailgate and you what not. Couldn't find it. Badass jungle night time truck blending camo. Government type shit.

Ricky eat up all that White Castle and I told him that it gave him that rot like that one time crystal and Deb came over with the crave case. Well he done it and I honestly smell ass.

Taste pretty awesome. Like Abe Lincoln riding a big ole chopper with a laser shooting eagle riding side car. Ya.

Shot gunned one sipped one feel pretty good.

Overall I think you know it's cool. Ricky thought it was cool too and he's alright with me.

Appearance- nice deep dark orange, 1 finger head that quickly drops to a film. Aroma- has a slight dusty smell, grapefruit, some sappiness,floral, lemon. Taste- bitter. Bitter from the hops and the grapefruit. Piney. Orange flavors. Kind of a cider note as well. A lingering bitterness after its swallowed. Overall- this is better tasting the warmer it gets. Started at 45 degrees. And the warmer it got the better.

Fun can art as always. I'm inclined to like it before I even crack it open. Good clarity, orange red hue, couple fingers of head that fades quickly. Minimal lacing. Resin and grapefruit pith, sort of grassy. Fruit peel bitterness. Moderate malt presence to hold it together.
