Thanks to Eric for sharing this bomber with me. Poured into a tulip, the brew appears a hazed copper color with a white cap. Some patchy to spotty lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a finger. The cap displays decent retention with yellowish tints around the edges.

The nose is fruity citrus rinds and herbs from the hops. It is somewhat catty with a cheesy funk aspect that increases its presence across the back as it warms up. Nothing particularly fascinating going on here but not bad either.

The taste includes notes of fruity rinds and herbs from the hops with a catty and herbal backing that gets oily, pine-like and pithy into the finish. The hops provide seemingly all the flavor profile of this brew which I am not gonna complain about, it just is lacking a bit.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is a decent interpretation of the style that is for the most part without fault. However, it is a pretty forgettable offering that I would not be in a hurry to try again unless it was super fresh.
