On tap at Angelo's Coal Fired Pizza in Kingston Ma. Nice copper color and citrusy nose. Not a whole lot of malt with the taste being primarily citrus with some bitterness on the finish. An OK beer.

L: Copper gold color with a small white head and a few specks of lacing around the glass.

S: Skunky, weedy, some pine, an odd mineral note, a little bit of citrus. Not the most inviting aroma.

T:. Skunky weedy hops, a little bit of pine and citrus, some toasted dark caramel malt. This is a very muddled beer that is all over the place. Medium bitterness.

F: Medium body and carbonation pretty smooth.

O: Not a fan, this beer is super skunky and all over the place.

Pours a medium copper color with a small head
Smells pleasantly hoppy with alcohol detectable in the smell
The taste is dense notably of bitter hops and a solid ipa taste overall

More solid than I expected, would recommend
