Poured 500 mL bottle into snifter glass; had a dark yellow/light orange coloring with minimal head. The tequila barrel is pretty obvious on the nose. You get the regular Gandhi-Bot (or now G-Bot) flavors/hops mixed with booziness of the tequila. There is some vanilla or caramel or toffee flavors mixed in there too. The carbonation is decent along with the body. Overall this is a nice experimental beer and would be curious to see if NEBCO makes it again (or does a different variant instead of the tequila barrels). Cheers!

Nice fruity hop aroma of grapefruit, tangerines and light tropical fruits. I get light touches of tequila and malt.

The flavor is oddly good as I definitely get tequila with a bit of alcohol. This is a bit malty but very light on feel. At times I taste peppermint but for the most part it's hoppy grapefruit, pine and bitterness.
