Leighton (11022) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Growler shared at the Mini Tasting, London. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a rich, frothy white cap. Loads of sweaty hops on the nose, light pee, dank grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, rich sweaty grass, ripe pale citrus fruits, subtle biscuity pale malts, tight grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Juicy hop finish, dank citrus, sweat, pee, moderate sweetness, very slight citrusy tang. Just delicious stuff. Stupidly drinkable.

Growler shared by GT. Thanks! Hazy pale golden pour with a white head. Really dank grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, and pine hop aromas. A bit of orange zest and some dry, cracker malts. The flavor is really nice and fruity. A touch of sweetness in the form of orange and pineapple. Big grapefruit and tangerine, pine flavor and bitterness, and some cracker malt. A touch of grass on the finish. Really excellent, excellent stuff.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Growler... Hazy yellow ale with a small, fat- bubbled, white head. The aroma points toward huge dry-hopping - armpit funk is joined by citrus fruits, tropical fruits and melons. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The fruity, juicy, flavor leans just a hair toward the bitter side of balance. Bittersweet, tongue-numbing finish. Growler generously shared by ctipping!

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Cloudy yellow/gold pour. Pure grapefruit peel and grassy hops hit the nose followed by a light yeasty finish. Creamy, yeasty, hoppy, juicy, and utterly delicious. Wow.

Growler @ Dan’s house, courtesy of Steve_0. Mucha gracias! Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Super juicy, spicy piney, grapefruity, juicy resiny, tangy, delicious aroma. Super delicious, piney resiny, mary jane, a touch dusty, bitter grapefruity, juicy flavor. Really a delicious, grapefruity flavor. Fuck yeah.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
750mL flip-top growler thanks to jbeatty. 2-Day air mailed to me. Poured full haze glowing orange with rich, bright white foam. Good lacing. Nose is whipped cream, butterscotch, jackfruit, mango, and typical Nelson squashiness. Taste is richer than expected with whipped cream and heavy biscuit. Flashes of sugar and alcohol. Thick, dessert like finish. Saltwater, buoyant palate with a finale of grapefruit rind. Good, but not as bright and refreshing as I’d like and nothing like the passionfruit smackdown of S&S#6.
