This is probably the best beer I’ve ever had that’s this low in alcohol. Pours cloudy yellow with good lacing. Smells like hay and dirty farm hops. A little bit bitter, a little grassy. Very full palate. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2012
32oz growler, fresh, from a good friend. thank you... pours a semi-hazy, wheat beer like pale yellow brown hue, consistent throughout, and topped with a ore than adequate fluffy frothy white head that eventually reduces down to a milky film.... firm grapefruit and citrus focused nose. a fair bit juicy to boot which enhances the aroma more ... flavors are not absurdly hop dominated, held in check, but still a very integral factor into the entire equation. crisp with lemon citrusy zest and a biscuity malt and pale grain backing. both work well in harmony with each other. quite a bit a flavor packed into such a small brew with 40 ibus overall. lighter bodied, refreshing hoppy goodness without being overdone and perfectly quenching. a touch of bitterness on the backend to provide an additional aspect while offering a touch of dryness to boot...really hoping the small session beer movement continues to see its deserved attention. i would love to have this at my disposal throughout the year, and not only during the summer months. an anytime type of brew. well crafted and executed.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at 2012 Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. After an onslaught of Saisons the metal band fired up and the hoppy beers came out. This dank-nosed juicy C-hop piece quenched my thirst and desire for hops. Fat, sticky resin nose followed by a dry, light and balanced body with green hoppiness and a nip of minerals. Clean, delectable and forward.

hammerslammer (16) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 29, 2012
growler, not as fresh as could be. blasts the nostrils with fresh hop citrus goodness. relatively light on the tongue given how potent the nose is. little pine, little lemon, little resin, little spring morning dewy. this baby dances on your tongue but something about it tells me it won’t stand out my in mind long term....a tasty treat for now, nonetheless.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
Growler shared with czar and minderbender. Hazy yellowish with a short-lasting white head. Smells like resin, hops and citrus. Very fruity taste, interesting cereals taste. Finish is all citrus, along with a touch of spice. Light bodied, resinous mouthfeel. Excellent pale ale.

yourefragile (138) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2013
On draft at Blackback. Pours a light, hazed yellow with a dense white head. Leaves plenty of lace and thing ring as the head fades. Crisp bready malt and lemon/citrus hop aroma; nicely balanced. Light bodied, well carbonated with a dry grassy and citrus bitter hop finish. Flavor has a strong bready malt base and tons of lemon and grass, with mild grapefruit juiciness. Amazing for a blonde.

PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 On tap at Tj’s with Court, Bri, and Alan, pours hazy golden orange with light head, and not much lacing. Notes of lemon, citrus hops, well water, grapefruit, grass and clean malt. Good bit of the motueka came out as it warmed up a bit. Body is super juicy with crisp, bitter lemon hop finish. Awesome session ale but I prefered the double dry hopped spring fever in Vt to this. Just lacked enough flavor but what do you expect for a 4% beer.

Growler at chopkofest pours gold with white head. An abundance of citrus mix in a touch of hay and earth. Body is slick.
