Draft - Hazy orange color with a nice white head that stuck around for a long time. Not an overly strong smell to it, mostly a hop bitterness smell. Nice strong bitter flavor with lots of subtle hints going on here. Very drinkable.

Itís okay, not really what I was expecting it to be. I was really thinking it was going to be a big juicy tropical smelling ipa, but itís mainly just grassy and earthy smelling. Thereís almost a soapy aroma to it. Taste is same grassy and earthiness. Some malt and thatís about it. Not really hoppy. Definitely long lasting bitterness but honestly not much else going on. As it warmed up I got a little more of a floral taste but really thatís about it. Itís weird, Iíve never been kind of meh about a Hardywood beer. Maybe I got a bad bottle. Kind of bummed I was really looking forward to this one.

On tap at PF Changs in Sterling. Plus a clear golden yellow orange with a white head. Aromas of pine and light citrus. Taste is medium bitterness with a light zesty citrus finish. I was told this was "Hardywood IPA" When I asked what the Hardywood seasonal was.

Tap. Clear golden orange. Nose is dead, flavor is dead, faint paper, dusty candy hops. Lighter to medium slick body. Off putting sticky light sweetness. Is this old? Just off? Either way, not good.

A wonderful concept and a testament to community brewing. Piney, rustic, earthy hops and a nice vinous malt backing. Short palate, fleeting resin, homegrown flavors.
