Bottle at Danís house. Pour is hazy lemon with a frothy one-finger white head. Big hoppy aroma, with hints of lemon zest, pine, sticky resin, weed, and grapefruit peel. Nice. Taste is sweet up front with a lot of hops in the middle; pine, grass, citrus, and tangerine, ending moderately bitter. Mouthfeel is light and high carbonation with a light ganja aftertaste. Really nice APA and some real amazing flavors for such a low ABV. Well-done.

Enjoyed via a 750ML growler filled 2 days ago at the brewery. Itís been in the fridge since then and is being enjoyed in a Duvel Tulip.

A - Poured a hazy straw gold color. 1 Finger creamy head with big and small bubbles. Really nice head lacing was present and the bubbles faded slowly.

S - Lots of big chewy simcoe scent. Pine cones and sap were dominating with some hint of lemon juice and cloves.

T - Very light start to this beer with a hint of light malts that covers the tongue followed by a solid pine resin bitterness and some sugary sweet honey.

M - 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body.

O - This is a very sessionable beer. Itís light, bright, hoppy and easy to drink. A perfect summer time session ale. Great job Shawn and John!

Shared by starrdogg. Thanks Matt. The beer is light golden yellow with a soft, white head. The aroma is great, offering some citrus and tropical fruits. The flavor brings a light, biscuit, malty character that gracefully balances the beer. Still a hop forward offering, of course. Lingering hop bitterness and tropical citrus on the palate. Delicious. I could drink a lot of this.

On tap at the brewery. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Citrusy/florally hop bouquet. Big taste for the low ABV. Florally hop notes dominate. Good body and mouthfeel.

Session ale perfection. So light and refreshing with great citrus, grass, and dank hop flavor that doesnt result in much bitterness. Very lightly malty and drinkable as all get up!

My beer should be this beer. Light bitterness and a huge hop presence, with some nice vaguely honey-esque malt. Amazing, especially given the ABV.

Poured at HFS Farmhouse Fest. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a finger of sticky foam. Lots on fresh grassy hop notes with round melon and a rustic wheat bread backbone. Smooth easy drinker a touch thin in the mid palate but overall a very sessionable flavorful beer.

On tap at the Otey abode. Pours a cloudy straw color with moderate frothy white head. Nose holds stunning notes of of pineapple and mango tropical fruits as well as citrus sweetness and touches of spruce and dank earthy loam. Flavor adds lemongrass and white grapefruit to broaden the fruit melange. A nice bitter finish but delectably drinkable. So amazingly flavorful for 4 percent. An incredible collaboration brew.

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!
