Got this in a trade and had in fridge for a while
22oz bottle poured into a glass, it has a murky gold color body with a large fizzy head. The aroma has a strong hop presence with s little malt to it. The taste is hop forward with a yeasty kind of finish. It has a little malt to it to. Mouthfeel is good and over all a good beer.

Poured from bottle into a Jester King goblet.

A: Pours a clear, golden yellow with two fingers of foamy, white head that fades into a nice, cloudy cap.

S: Tart, white wine/grape absolutely dominates, some faint funk, light faint yeast, and nothing else.

T: Barnyard funkiness, lemon, sour white grape, and white wine.

M: Light with subtle carbonation. Quite smooth.

O: This one's okay, but after tasting some of the best of what JK can push out (Nocturnal, Hibernal, etc.), this one kinda just ends up tasting like what the elephant cage at the zoo smells like. Meh.
