3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml swing-top growler shared with blankboy and GregClow, via JerCraigs. Light hazy yellow-gold with a large rocky white head. Dry, zesty, mildly fruity aroma, a bit of alcohol (almost 8). Taste - more APA, but wonderful - mid-level light grain, floral bitterness, solid overripe fruit, alcohol - building bitterness, a little oniony. Body on the light side, astringent, moderately carbonated, longish bitter finish that doesn’t quite hit "wow" levels - damned drinkable.

Pours a hazy dark rust orange. Has a strong floral hop aroma. Taste is strong with floral hops, pine, and citrus. A light butter hop aftertaste - nothing overpowering.

Sample at the source. Pours at cloudy yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical, and floral notes. Flavor of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, light floral in the back. Medium to light body, chewy texture, nice carbonation, smooth finish. Awesome. Love these hoppy HF beers.

On tap at BGH. Pours a cloudy light Amber. Light bodied but full flavor. Great balance. Excellent summer IPA. Could do with more bite.

On tap at the Jeffrey. Pours a bright opaque yellow orange, big fluffy white head good lacing. Aroma is juicy citrus, tangerine, tropical fruits, grass, creamsicle. Flavor is gooey citrus, light dry pine, bread, grass, light grapefruit rind and bitter late dry hopped finish... Generally very juicy. Lightish body, juicy dry hopped goodness. Solid HFS action.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Location: Growler from the brewery, 7/9/15
Aroma: Herbal and earthy, spice, pepper, a bit of cracker, and some citrus/tropical fruits as well
Appearance: It pours a cloudy bright orange color with a milky eggshell head and mid-heavy lacing
Flavor: Tastes of a nice yeast/spice blend, with earthy and herbal flavors, and a good bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with a creamy feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Well then, after the amazing tropical hop flavor of all those other IPAs turns out it isn’t the only hop profile they can absolutely nail. The hop profile here, with its excellent complexity, is completely different than others of their beers, but still excellent in its own way. Wow, they got it right again. No surprise.

Tasted from draft. Pours a hazy pale straw yellow with fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, citrus fruit, and pine. Taste is incredibly balanced with moderate bitterness and great malt backbone. Very creamy and silky mouthfeel. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit, grasses, and a good amount of pine. Some cracker and biscuit malt flavors as well. Incredible IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy apple cider color, no head. Fresh cut grass and citrus nose. Not the most exciting of ipas, but also not overly hopped. Palate could have been a bit cleaner and crisp in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at abbye in Worcester. Very similar to Susan, but this tilted more towards the bitter and piney side of the iPA spectrum. Not a huge fan, like I was of Susan. Decent and worth a drink but not a great IPA.
