4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler shared by Willrunforbeer, a lot of thanks Brian. When held to the light this hazy gold just glows. Aroma is mild white grapes, grassy hops and a mild tropical fruit note, nice!
Every time I sample this hop variety I get hints of juicy white grape. Same thing here in the finish with with some grapefruit, citrus peel and a moderate lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice and soft/ light like most others from this brewery. I love this hop variety so needless to say I was excited to finally try this. I could sip this all night, could drink an entire growler myself.

Aroma: bursting with fresh, floral hops - tons of grape, mango, orange, and pear. Light malt character, touch of cracker.
Appearance: hazy light golden/straw color, fluffy white head and great lacing.
Taste: juicy fresh hops, lots of white grape, lemon, and melon. Slightly grassy, such an amazing fruity hop character, pleasant light malt character and a hint of sweetness.
Palate: fairly light body, medium carbonation, finish is mostly dry with a touch of malt sweetness.
Overall: fantastic hop character, just the right malt balance, excellent brew.

Growler shared by my friend Dave. Pours a cloudy pale yellow gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first several sips and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of citrus, notably grapefruit, along with notes of pine and grass. The flavor is similar with pale malt and what several of us discussed as spicy rye. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Quite good.

Draft to stemmed taster at HF. Looks good; a hazy pineapple with white head. Smells good too; juicy and piney hops with a nicely balanced sweetness in the background along with a touch of pleasant grain. Tastes like it smells with some onion as well. A good example of the style.

Au nez, on sent le fruit tropical, le kiwi et le vin blanc. En bouche, c'est tout en douceur. L'acidité s'estompe instantanément et laisse place aux côtés fruités. L'amertume est bien présent, mais moindre que pour IPA. La finale est assez sèche et l'amertume reste sur la langue. Une APA de très grande qualité qui ne manque certainement pas d'éclat.
