On tap at the Tacoma Craft Brew Festival. A new brewery to me - must be new because their signage looked low-rent, as if it were designed and printed at Kinko's this morning.

Starts out slow and mellow but after a half-glass comes on very strong. Pushes the limits of harshness.

A: Pours a nice bright orange with good carbonation presenting a nice white, fuzzy cap. The head retention is good providing some lacing.

S: The nose provides a wallop of fruits, mainly tropical and citrus, it smells promising.

T: Initial taste is fresh citrus and a hint of tropical fruits and then a weird, sordove obnoxious bittering presence comes to play and it gets a little soapy as well. The further this beer runs the soapier and stranger it becomes.

M: Not much body on this, I would say it's borderline session beer body, the bittering and soapiness becomes rough on the mouth

O: This beer needs to be cleaned up a bit.
