Growler shared by Tom, thanks! Pours a near clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy onion, earthy citrus, some tropical fruit and light grains backing. Flavor is a touch thin with earthy citrus and light onion notes backed by tropical fruits and a bit of sweet grain.

Pour out of 750 mL growler, thanks Tom! Hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big orange peel, grapefruit juice, tropical mango, passion fruit notes into some biscuit, dry malts into a bit of pine. Taste was a nice mix of pine, orange, grapefruit, some slight floral hops into lots of tropical fruit with passion fruit and almost a guava note, hints of lemon, some slight biscuit just to back it up, finishing bitter. Hit the right balance of fruity and piney for me.

Draft at Pro Pig. Mostly clear yellow with lasting head. Aroma is tropical fruit, grass and a nice balance of malt. The flavor is strong amounts of fruit with mild grass and yeast. The mouth feel has a nice effervescence over the palate. Tropical fruit lingers for a good amount after the sip. Very great construction to this brew.

Growler shared by Tom - thanks! Golden orange pour with a small head. Nice citrusy aroma and taste. Smooth palate - might have lost a bit of carbonation but this is still very good.

Growler thanks to McBoost. Hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Aroma is very herbal and grassy, light spiciness, with some citrus fruit. Medium light body. Clean. Moderate low bitterness, low sweetness. Some orange citrus and light tropical fruit, but mostly herbal and clean. Not sure if the fruit faded en route to Colorado but I found this mostly herbal. Pretty good. Chuggable.

Fresh growler I bought from the brewery. Pours a medium shade gold with a white head. Aromas of straight up citrus fruit. Taste is semi dry and moderately bitter. Flavors consist of a beautifully woven tropical fruit explosion interwoven with bursts of sunshine, some blue spruce tree needles and light cracker malt. Like a drinkable Picasso. Mouthfeel and carbonation is spot on and the finish is citric and gently bitter. A work of art.
