3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at WLV for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours very attractive, deep orange-gold with a sticky white head. Nose is big on hops but somewhat generic. Lacks the pop you’d expect from the hops chosen. Grapefruit and resin, faint tropical note. Stiff malt component as well. On tasting, faint sweetness, firm bitterness overall. Hop flavor sticks with citrus and a hint of marmalade. Dry finish. Very well crafted IPA but lacks something to make it pop. I’d drink a ton of this if it were available but it’s not in my top 10...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler, consumed a couple of hours after fill. Hazy dirty blonde with a generous white head. Gentle citrus aromas with some mild flowery hops présence. Nice carbonation, crisp palate, very smooth bitterness, very far from a hop bomb with a superior drinkability. So easy drinking. Very nice sessionable IPA.

Growler from Hill Farmstead. Pours a bright yellow-gold, nice frothy white head that slowly fades to a cap. Nice moderate carbonation. Aromas of fresh citrus, flowers, sweet resins and a slight pine. Taste is a nice harmony of fresh squeezed oranges, lemon-lime and light malt sweetness before a nice bitter backbone finishes this off with a nice and dry grapefruit note. Really nice IPA!

Draft at HF. This is getting very high ratings, but I didn’t see it somehow. I thought it was a fairly yeasty, saison-like IPA, with some grassy hops. All right.
