Smells immediately of juicy berries and a unique citrus element that reminds me of the bergamot in Earl Grey tea. Tastes a bit more citrusy, but overall very clean and juicy hop flavor/feel. Super drinkable.

From a 64 oz. growler purchased at the brewpub. 2012 version. Fairly clear golden brown with a nice foamy head. Aroma is almost pine like, even a little toasted. The taste has the malt having a good presence. It’s biscuity, and pretty good. The glass is coated with nice lacing. I will admit I wished the beer had more of a brighter fresh hop character in aroma and in taste. It’s a good refreshing beer but not a great attempt to showcase the fresh resiny hops.
