jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Growler on the bus during RBWG. I suspect Leighton had something to do with this! Hazy gold pour with a small head. The nose is really pissy. South pacific sea grass and dirt. Somewhat funky. The taste is of lemon meat and singed grass. Mild perfume accents. Delicate and more nimble than the muscular aroma suggests. Quite taste stuff.

Clownoisseur (264) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Growler from brewery. Pours a nice light gold, foamy white head. Aromas of passionfruit, citrus,pine. Taste is light. Some melon mends with the pale malts nicely, a bit of pine comes in, but only very subtle. Finish is decent and straight forward. Nothing exciting, but nicely done.

Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy gold with medium frothy off white head. The aroma is pine, citrus, and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with light citrus and dry bitternes. Easy to drink, very nice.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Growler shared by Leighton ( i think!) on bus during RBWG. Thanks bro! Another fantastic (shocker!!!) single hop pale from the amazing hands of Shaun Hill. Delish. My first hill farm beer in nearly a year! It’s been too long.

alexsdad06 (5869) - Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Growler on the bus at RBWG ’14. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice combination of citrus, grapefruit and pine hops with some light herbal notes and a decent pale bready malt base. Mild sweetness, but good bitterness especially for a pale ale.

Growler pour. Golden pour with white head. Grassy, herbal and earthy hops aromas. Flavors are similar, nice finish.

Leighton (11847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Growler shared on the bus during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Picked up from the brewery one week before. Lovely, lovely beer. Pours lightly hazed gold with a luscious, white foam head. Loaded with pithy citrus in the nose, tangerine, light pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with further citrus, some rindy bitterness, pale bread sugars. Light-medium in body with fine, massaging carbonation. Clean finish with more pithy orange and tangerine. Excellent.

Flip top sample on RBWG bus. Pours hazy light gold. Nose grapefruit, citrus, slight grassy. Taste similar to nose, awesome aromatic hop. Mid palate sweet. Pleasing bitter finish.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bus beer at Ratebeer Winter Gathering 2014. Yellow, white head. Very fresh, lightly piney, grassy aroma. Flavor seems to more citrus forward, with a whiff of white wine. Fresh bread, crackery flavors, too. Very tasty.
