Growler shared by GT. Cloudy light golden pour with a white head. Really floral and citrus forward aroma. Biscuit malt notes, some grass, and dough. Doughy, biscuity flavor. Nice body and malt character for such a low gravity beer. Big time floral hops, some citrus peel, pine, and grass. Light bitterness on the finish.

750mL flip-top big thanks to Ed5388. Beautiful glowing peach pour with rocky, meringue foam. Nose is beautiful sweet cream butter (Hill Farmstead house yeast), soft butterscotch, peaches&cream ice cream, juicy cantaloupe, whipped cream. As it warms, a flash of exotic/pithy tropical melon comes through (Motueka I assume). Taste is juicy, rich butterscotch is a flavor but not a density. Floats on the tongue with mega buoyancy. Super soft bitterness is not the main character here- juicy hops and tropical fruit are 90% with the remaining a soft bitterness. Soft and refreshing rather than abusive. Slick, soft butteriness on the palate is exactly what I am after. A big improvement over tannic astringency or chemical soap. Exactly the APA I was hoping this would be and much more. A perfect hop combo of some of my favorites, especially Amarillo. Wow. This is the entire purpose of the APA style- delicacy, bright hoppiness, refreshing body unlike IPAs which are bitter for no reason and heavy in mouthfeel. This is the session beer we all should be demanding. I will be dreaming of this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 On tap @ The Farmhouse (Burlington VT). Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus. Taste is light citrus and grapefruit, some pineapple, and some cracker. Almost tastes like a light version of S&S 5. Nice crisp and really refreshing!

Cloudy white gold with a finger white head. Yeasty grassy aroma. Light and easy drinking with just a touch of hop. Sessionable is an understatement. Wow!

radarsock (1141) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2013
$8 for the 16 ounces at Positive Pie, in the new Hardwick location. Pours a meringue golden with a trim, sudsy, snowy white head. Aromas of limeade, cilantro, oregano, wheat cereal, bone marrow, and pilsner malt. Tastes similar, but unquestionably better: it’s of pine cones, fir leaves, American hops, russet potatoes, agave syrup, and seawater. Sweat and farmhouse yeast by swallow. Earthy and bittersweet. Likeable.

callmemickey (3891) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Glowing orange body, large white head, soapy lacing. Nose is light citrus, grass and grainy malt. Flavor is similar with grain becoming more predominant. Light bodied, a bit then in the middle, assertive hops, refreshing but a bit too light for the flavor profile.

Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and grassy and piney hops. Very clean. Sweet malt flavor with grassy hop accents before a piney finish.
