Cloudy yellow/straw. Little head retention and minimal lacing. Looks a bit like urine, not going to lie.

Lots of lemon peel and orange peel in the nose. A little grassy and some pine.

Orange and lemon with a biscuit malt backbone. Decently resinous and surprisingly bitter.

Low carbonation. Medium-ish bodied, but a little thick/syrupy.

Wow, first review. The pressure...

Growler purchased at the legendary Trenton Road Takeout November 28 and consumed the next day using a Belgian ale glass.

L: Cloudy light amber. Pour results in one-finger foam head with some retention and lacing.

S: Heavy on the citrus and tropical fruits, lighter on the pine and light malts.

T: Orange, pineapple, mango. Light biscuit malt. Some bitterness after long finish.

F: Very light carbonation, medium-bodied. Not very dry.

O: I feel like it's missing something, either needing more carbonation or a different blend of hops to induce a drier finish. The citrus flavors are nice.
