Draft at the Hill Farmstead event at Blind Tiger. Slight, clear sunset orange with a thin, sudsy, slippery off-white head. Not much lacing. Very soapy/piney/earthy nose that opens slowly to reveal notes of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, and freshly cut grass. Resinous, juicy, yet tight and bitter palate; the beer finishes very dryly and rests heavily upon the gentle carbonation and piney bitterness. Very good IPA.

From tap at Hardy. Pours hazy and towards murky orange with a thick, white and lasting head. Aroma is peachy, grapefruity and citrusy. Bitter and distinct grapefruity. Bitter and dense grapefruity finish.

A: The pour is definitely murky. Burnt orange in color with a white head that sticks quite nicely to the glass. S: Smells different, but I sort of expected that since this is my first encounter with Pacifica hops. Definitely some citrus, but there’s a sharp grassiness and maybe even a bit of blue cheese. A strong aroma of pine is present as well. T: The taste is better than the nose, I think. A nice bitterness to go with some pine, grass, and fresh tangerine an grapefruit flesh and definitely some rinds as well. Not really much malt flavor to this beer at all. M: The body is medium with a fairly low carbonation, but that’s likely due to the growler. D: Not as good as the Abner growler I drank yesterday, but sort of a different beast. Not sure that I’m too crazy about Pacifica as a hop, though.
