Another beer from the Wellington Re-Booted Mix Pack, Volume 4; clouded amber and tangerine hue on the pour with restrained but fine head.

Bright citrus aromas on the nose, with lush malt undertones.

A rich blend of the oats, flaked wheat, malt, and hops swirls across the palate; this ale uses Vermont style ale yeast, for added complexity.

Despite the high ABV, this ale surprisingly finishes cleanly and refreshingly.

A pleasant distraction from the run of the mill craft IPAs.

Hoochsavvy Grade: A-
