Been sitting on this review for a while as it was not in the system and I did not know enough of the specs to add it. Thanks JLindros! Enjoyed at the Tree House bottle share back in December.

A - Poured a just barely hazy golden orange hue with a thin quarter inch head that fades to leave light, light lacing.

S - Ohhh yeah. BIG citra notes here. Tons of tropical fruits, light resin and grapefruit. Faint passion fruit. Believe there is some sorachi hops in this too.

T - taste is damn close to the nose. Solid citra hops, bitter pine on the finish along with hints of rye. Tons of passion fruit and grapefruit. Light, light mango too. Strong bitter finish but not too overwhelming.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, solid carbonation. Quite drinkable.

O - Overall, a darn tasty beer. Would definitely purchase this if I saw it in a store.

Shared at at the Tree House bottle share back in December. Reviewed from my notes.

Light fizzy head fades at a med pace with little lacing, hazy yellow orange color

Nose big fresh hops, citrus, tropical fruits, light resin, passion fruit, light grapefruit, fluffy , etc,

Taste fluffy malt to start but that is just enough to prop up the hops, then citra hops, fairly bitter resin, light spicy and grassy, etc. Passion fruit, faint grapefruit, little mango, lemongrass, and a faint hint of spicy rye blended in there. A bit fruity as well. Bitterness is strong but not overpowering.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb.

Overall quite a nice beer, I hope they decide to brew more of this.
