Stine (1663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2014
The brilliant golden glow a dandelion field, topped with fine-bubbled white and clouded fully through. Shallot, white onion and garlic scape compose the prickly surface of the deep, stinging and oily citrus aroma; the peppery adhesive of dandelion flowers and stems brings back strong pungency in the back end.

White pepper and stone fruits integrate with these forest floor and soil like notes. It is must and musk heavy and zinging with acidity at the same time. Lemon rind, black pepper, ground fine rosemary and oregano; super pungent.

As with many an effort from this brewery, the unimpeachably balanced texture is what sets it apart; when the acidic pungency threatens to overwhelm, the mid palate leans calmly away, into a slow-whisking, dry and subtle finish.

Poured into tulip from a growler: Pours hazy yellow gold with a thin white head, and decent lacing. Aroma of pineapple, citrus, pine, and a little grapefruit. Flavor is lots of tropical fruit, resin, and a little floral. Medium body, very smooth, a little bitter on the finish. Very nice.

cpetrone84 (1718) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pour is a hazed golden yellow with a tight white head and thick lacing. Nose is big and delicious, light clean fresh grain, strong hop profile, citrus, light grassy, just a hint of resin to add depth. Taste follows the nose, grain is clean, a little bit more of a presence in the flavor. Loads of citrus with just a hint of resiny hop and a light but presence bitterness through the finish. Extremely drinkable, soft delicate body, moderate carb.

Lukaduke (2710) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Shared by JD after meeting him in line @ Hill Farmstead the day before ! Pours a medium golden color with two finger of sticky white foam. Big citrus punch bordering on straight lemon peel with layers of straw, grapefruit and some lingering pine bitterness. Clean mouthfeel with a nice punchy midpalate and soft balance that rolls into the finish !
