Liljas Hope Nest Monster ~ Pangaea Brewing Company

Appearance: orange with a smidge of dregs – a bad sign? Off white head fades into a collar bordering a broken film. Swirls thick with lingering spots.

Nose: bread crusts. Stems and leaves. Mild nondescript greenness in the back with dry lemon skin. Saltines. Hop pellets.

Palate: clean with a hint of nondescript sweetness underneath. More lemon zest then the nose implied. Orange, white grapefruit, and lemon peel. Some pink grapefruit in the middle for sweetness. Pleasantly dry finish. Inner pith of citric skin lingers a bit too long – dry and harsh. Average.

Final Thoughts: overall not too bad. The dregs left me a bit leery of the overall result, and the overall result was it was okay. Simple to a fault yes but not a drain pour.
