    • Date: December 20, 2019 (#10136)
      Package: canned
      Place: Northbound Liquor Store, Elk River MN
      Score: 15 points
      Appearance (3)
      Translucently hazy, amber color. Massive head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Huge fresh citrusy hops. Tangerine juice.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Intensely hoppy, fruity...dare I say juicy? Medium body, slick texture from all the haze. Sweet background but not all that malty. Fairly bitter, but it doesn't last.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      It's all about the "juiciness", with nothing else for balance.

    • Date: May 25, 2020 (#10295)
      Package: canned
      Place: at the brewery
      Score: 15½ points
      Appearance (3)
      Bright golden, except for a little Schmutz at the end of the pour. Dense white head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Citrusy, mildly tropical. Biscuity. Maybe a little alcohol.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Medium-big body, smooth. Biscuity malt underlies a grassy, fruity-floral hop flavor with an odd onion note. Medium bitterness. Grassy-floral finish.
      Overall Impression (2)
      We have the ingredients for a clone batch, to be brewed in the next few weeks.
