3.55/5  rDev +6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the Better Weather Fest at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, lime, lemongrass, and spices. Taste is much the same with a lime, spice, and perfume-like flavors on the finish. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.

3.11/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Pours a hazy golden yellow in color with a 1/2 inch white bubbly head and good retention and spotty lacing left on the glass

Smell: The nose is quite purfumey if that is a word. It kind of reminds me of an old ladies perfume. There is some nice orange peel, coriander, and lemon grass

Taste: The flavor just didnt work for me. Again that same perfume not shows up and then when you mix in the lemon grass it just becomes hard to drink.

Mouthfeel: Light in body and high in carbonation

Overall: This is the first beer by Kinetic that I would just absolutely avoid. This may have been a good idea but the execution of it was just bad.
