3.2/5  rDev -18.8%

I have had several times. Most recently a growler from Premium Draught.

A: Pours a cloudy almost opaque orange. A two finger white head forms at first, but recedes to a small ring that sticks throughout. Light lace.
S: I have always struggled with the nose. Some plastic and band aid aromas. Then the fruity, soapy hops take over. That is about it.
T: A get a little bit of that band aid flavor, but more fruity hops take over which is good.
M/D: A medium body that is a bit low on the carbonation. I wish this was more crisp. Not hard to drink considering the almost 8% ABV.

Pretty simple, and I have always gotten this strange plastic/band aid character that I am not a fan of. Get rid of that, and this would be great.
