Draft at pony bar HK with Linh. Pours a lightly hazy orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is muted overall - light notes of citrus, pine and faint funky character. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with notes of fruity funk, citrus and light floral funkiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at GLB, cloudy gold with decent head retention. Nose is fruity Belgain yeast with a light spice in there as well. Pale malts. Body is yeasty with a chewy body. The flavor is a good amount of citrus and dried fruits upfront. The bitterness is light and herbal with some lingering affect.
The Bear lists this this as a farmhouse IPA, I agree. The balance of yeast and hop bitterness is married well in this brew. I find this interesting and rather tasty. Nice flagship brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
64oz growler from the brewery, opened one day later. Nose is fruity yeast with touches of soft melon and citrus. Taste is fruity bready yeast, hints of orange peel, faint juiciness, a bit vegetal mid palate, dough. Finish is moderately spicy fruity yeast, occasional banana notes, and medium bitterness. Solid beer but sort of lacking any real defining identity.
