Growler: Thanks, Ed. Hazy, bright golden color with a soapy white head that slowly transitions into a thin collar. Smells of orange rind, pine, wet hop oil, a touch of peach, grass, & some fresh hop leaves. Dry & light flavor; hoppy juice with lots of orange flesh, orange rind, weedy hop leaves, lupulin oils, & a touch of white peppery spice on the back-end. Crisp, fresh, nice hop bite on the tongue without getting too bitter for a pale ale. Lingering with some citrus zest & maybe a touch of resin. A very nice pale ale from Shaun.

750 ml growler thanks to Adam. Aroma is floral, citrus and traces of grapefruit. Really bright and juicy.

Flavor is a great display of Amarillo hop variety. Floral upfront with juicy citrus and light residual sugar sweetness with a nice pale grain body. Different hints of fruits and melon in the backend with a very clean finish. Hints of dank, leafy hops. Jeez this is damn refreshing! All day drinker for me, can’t get enough.

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of orange peel, some juicy valencia, straw, floral grass a solid firm base cracker like malt. Really focused amarillo notes at its best, cold it was a touch tight but if you let the glass warm a touch the soft complexities really open nicely !
