Super Fresh Growler pour from my man Frank. Huge thanks for letting me try this absolutely insane ipa. Pours an ultra murked out yellow gold color with small snow white head and nice occasional lace patterns. Aromas of the juciest and most resinous hop flowers imaginable, tons and tons of grapefruit guts, pineapple, light tang, lemon fuel, mango. There has to be some riwaka or motueka in here, don’t get quite the amount of cheese from nelson. Taste is the same as the aroma, and maybe more impressive. Perfectly dry and bitter in the close. Epic!

Sampled at the brewery and rated from a 2L growler. Oddly enough seemed to benefit from sitting in the growler for a while as I was not originally too impressed by the sampler. Hazy dark amber with an off white head. Old lemon and grapefruit rind, mango, some papaya, some peach and semi-floral hops with a background malt presence. Moderate carbonation and full body, crisp, balanced, easy to drink and enjoyable with a refreshing bitterness.

750ml growler. Hazed straw golden with ample head and spotty lacing. Super balanced nose of creamy pils malt, citrus and sweet piney hops. Creamy mouth feel. Light sweetness up front, citrus, pine, pith...super balanced.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, tangerine, toast, pine and some tropical fruits. Taste of citrus, pine, resin, tropical fruits, juicy, sweeter grapefruit. Bitter, hop finish.

Pouts a hazed peach juice color with a decent white head. Aromas of of tropical fruits, guava, mango. Citrus. Taste is lightly bitter and semi sweet. Flavors of juicy tropical fruit, chewy lemon rind. Very good. Tasted side by side with Heady and this was a touch behind.

Tap @ Worthy Burger. This is a damn near perfect DIPA. Hill killed it on this experiment. Grapefruit galore as the citrus poors out from the glass but yet so balanced with the hops mixture making this so enjoyable to drink. I just have to give this a "hells yeah" to try if you can locate somewhere.

Growler shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours a hazy golden yellow with thin bubbly head. Aroma and taste are big on simcoe and mosaic, zesty grapefruit and earth, nice balance of malt and hop profile. Darn tasty IPA.

Ferris (6780) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
Growler - Bright grassy hops, little cat pee and a hay. Cloudy gold with a light white head. Lots of hay and grass with a light bitterness. Nice, but not as nice as others seem to think.
