4.16/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a week and a half old can into my TH pint glass.

L: A super murky orange brown color with a two finger white fluffy head. Nice full, full glass lacing.

S: I get a little apple, tart fruit, some grassiness and dull sweetness.

T: So I had this the day of release and now again a week + later. The apple is definitly coming through more with some slight age. Up front I get the apple cider flavor which mixes with other fruits such as lime and peach. I get a little earthy/grassy flavors that mixes with some caramel malt that soon gets crushed by tart fruit and hops to finish. The finish is tart and dry and bitter, but not sure if the bittterness is the hops or the tart fruit. Tastes good.

F: Full, coating, tart, a bit prickly and very little alcohol. Nice carbonation, perfect in fact.

O: I was not a huge fan on release, but this beer is starting to shine with a week or so age on it.......as other TH beers have done. This is not their "best" beer, but it no doubt is different and enjoyable and it works. A great fall treat for sure.

3.79/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy, smoothie-like orange with a grayish hue. Two fingers of off-white head that leave nice sheets of lacing.

Hop-forward aroma with tropical fruit, lime, vanilla wafers and the slightest hint of apple. A real potpourri of smells. A cornucopia of smells, if you will.

At only hours since canning, the taste is dominated by a burnt herb character and moderately-strong nuttiness both of which seem hop-driven. There is again a flash of apple beneath, but it's in no way fruity. There's a touch of lime, as well, and a dull bitterness on the backend.

The mouthfeel is thick and almost chewy for the style. Somewhat prickly as well. Very pleasant.

I was expecting apple cider to be a prominent flavor in this one, and that's not at all the case. The hop mix here isn't my personal favorite, but it will be interesting to see how it mellows over the next couple weeks.
