22 oz bottle poured into nonic pint

A: poured very gently and could only get 1/4 of the bottle before foam started overflowing I have 1/8 beer and all foam

S: smells like bananas and clove

T: like banana and cloves with a bitter finish

M: very bubbly and super carbonated

O: pure garbage I don't know why they bother telling you the hops with that yeast profile you are overwhelmed by the taste of bananas and clove the hops do add bitterness but that is about it.

Very citrus forward IPA. Has that ripe, grape forward nose mixed with a lime heavy back end. Easy drinking, provides a good change of pace for the average beer drinker.
