This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Bottle from Hoff dated 9/30/14. Aroma is awesome on this. As soon as I popped it, I could smell fresh lemons immediately. Very unique hops in this one. Taste is lemon zest, grapefruit and pear. Finishes crisp and bitter with nice malt backbone combo. Great seasonal.

tom10101 (3368) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Craft Beer Cellar Waterbury. Bottled on 09-30-2014, so 2½ months now.

Appearance: Clear deep golden with a small easy to revive white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite floral and piney with leafy hops, citrus zest and some minerality.

Taste: Pine/spruce presence with leafy hops, floral presence, light citrus and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. A tad oily mouthfeel. Piney finish.

Overall: Good Harvest Ale, but a top-50 IPA? Really? There’s probably some "Founders majoration points" here that works in a reverse way for me. Easy to drink, especially for the ABV. Tasty. Quite piney.

AndresTM (344) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2014
The aroma is dominated by piney hops, with an orangey/grapefruity and vaguely floral edge. Some spices and malted grain also show up. The mouthfeel is medium, with medium viscosity and a slightly oily body. The taste is citrusy and piney bitter, with a fair share of fruity and spicy flavors. A vaguely malty (think the smell of a sack of fresh barley) flavor lingers, as well as some bitter notes. I’d drink this stuff again.
