Appearance

Collective Arts Ransack The Universe is a hazy orange color with a white creamy head.

Aroma

I’m detecting notes of light orange, sweet grapefruit and guava. A significant amount of citrus aromatics present here.

Flavor

After all the citrus aromatics, I was looking forward to a big burst of citrus flavors. What I tasted was bitter citrus rind up front which faded to a sweet, creamy citrus. The citrus, although enjoyable, does not match the intensity of the aroma.

Balance

The bitter rind is quite intense and the sweet citrus doesn’t match the strength resulting in a significant flavor imbalance.

Finish

The beer finishes with tropical fruit and some of the bitter citrus rind from the start of the sip.

Overall

The Collective Arts Ransack The Universe has tropical fruit notes and various citrus flavors that are really interesting, but unfortunately the bitterness I’m getting throughout impacts the overall experience.
