Pours a finger of tan head (has a bit of blue-ish tint) over a cloudy copper colored liquid. Smells fruit loops hoppy. Oranges, pithy, cherry, berry, and tropical punch.

Tastes sharp pithy hop bitter combined with a fermented berry acidic. The acidic is amplified by the fine sharp carbonation sting. This edge cuts through most of the other flavors such that this is the primary flavor that has hold and finally transitions to a seedy dry finish. Hop flavors are dank pine and sharp grapefruit pith. No esters can be detected. There is malt sweet, but it's totally over-run by the astringent edge. Medium in the mouth, moderate carbonation, and drinkability is meh-. If I were to stop by Bravery Brewing, I'd order something other than this.
