Reviewed from notes. Growler shared by someone in the crew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow under a 1/4-inch thick white head with fades quickly to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Mango sherbet, spices, citrus fruit (lemon/lime, grapefruit), floral, herbal overtones.

T: Complex and nice blend of citrus, peppery spices, herbal, fruity, mild sweetish malts, grainy.

M: Moderate body and medium (growler) carbonation. Finishes with a lingering citrus and peppery spice.

O: Unique and very creative, nicely done.

On tap at TH.

Hazy yellow-orange pour, with a solid half inch of frothy white head; good retention and lacing. In the aroma, toasted corn, lime, black pepper. Lots of sweet lime in the taste, actually quite a bit more than I'd have expected, zest, underlying cilantro and pepper spice, with no real heat going on, a crackery, fresh grain finish. They must have used a good quantity of lime in this, because it actually reminded me a bit of a less sweet / more spicy version of Communication Is the Key Lime Pie--one of my favorites from the brewery. Medium body, smooth and complex mouthfeel. Probably not for everyone, but definitely an interesting brew.

Filled up a 32-oz growler from Tired Hands on 5/6/16 at the brew cafe. Drank with some tacos on a Friday night.

The beer pours a hazy opaque bright yellow - looks like grapefruit juice. Smells of lime pulp & zest upfront with citrus hops & notes of light tropical fruit. Some of the spice peak through such as the chiles and cumin. Perhaps a dashed coriander.

Tastes dry with citrus hop sweetness and lime juice. Chiles are very evident as the beer warms. Spices are more subdued.

Very unique & refreshing beer. Alcohol well in check.
