16 oz. Can
Canned On: 09/25/18
ABV: 8.5%

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice hazy yellow color, nice carbonation, with a nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, guava, grapes), little tart/sour, nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, guava, grapes), little tart/sour, nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, surprised me, nice little take on the style. Thanks Russ!

Pours a hazed & effervescent gold with 2 fingers if ivory colored head. Below average head retention & lacing

S: Breadyness, citrus, nose tamps down once warm

T: Follows the nose, tangerines & grapefruit with a little dryness & just a touch of grassyness up front. Dryness, sweet orange, a little leafy hop & pear as well once warm. Finishes dry with tangerine, grapefruit & a touch of woody hops

MF: Medium body, subdued carbonation, nice balance

Pretty easy to drink, not that off kilter, just a nice DIPA
