Pours a slightly hazy amber with a well retained one inc head that left decent lacing. Smell is citrus and tropical fruits. Tastes of orange, orange pith, lemons, pineapple, pine and some sweet malts. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, dry and bitter finish, tart mouth feel.

STAY AWAY. This brewery demands dispensaries cannot let it get warm. It pours full of sediment and chunks. 4 bucks for a 16 ounce. I'm actually allergic to it... poured down the drain.

A golden haze w/ suspended sediment beneath a slightly creamy, foam head that leaves some thin lacing as it recedes.

Semi-sweet tropical fruit aromas; peach, honeydew. Mild citrus, specifically orange and lemon.

Taste is as the aromas foreshadow, peach, orange, etc. The alcohol presence has a rum-soaked fruit quality and provides a bit of warmth before a hefty bitterness in the finish. The pleasant tropical fruit flavors and resiny hops diminish once the bitterness hits, allowing for a grainy aftertaste.

For the style, the mouthfeel is pretty much spot on for me. Full bodied throughout, pulpy with a lot of texture.

Overall, a pretty good offering, but not exactly memorable.

Pours a slightly hazy dirty yellow color. Earthy hops on the nose with a slight overtone of citrus. The slightly sweet malt backbone balances perfectly against a citrusy, hoppy foreground. Hops are puckering but not over powering. This is a pretty tasty beer and goes down way too easily. I'd definitely buy this again.

On tap at Bostonia Publik House. Somewhat clear golden yellow to copper with minimal chill haze. No head on beer tenders pour. Nose is a bouquet of citrus, tropical fruit and pine cones. Taste is a mix of east vs west. You get a bit of juicy tropical fruits and citrus. Jolly rancher like fruitiness. But intertwined in is a sticky pine gum, floral and resin with a grainy and earthy base. Bitter kick to finish. Medium to fat body with some stickiness to it. I enjoyed this one.

People in the New England area must be spoiled! Coming from the Midwest this beer is solid. The smell is incredible and the taste is off the charts. Must try if on the East Coast.
