Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and crispy but turning softer. Semi dry. Very mild malt cream under marvellous fresh pink grapefruit hops. Touch of yellow grapefruit hops and lesser orange citrus. Mildly bitter seltzer minerals. Finishes fairly neutral with a nice citric bitter aftertaste. Beautifully put together and very refreshing.

Growler courtesy of oteyj, thank you sir! Cloudy variegated yellow orange color, thick fluffy white head, good retention. Aroma of freshly cut wet grass, very subtle pine. Taste is light grass, citrus, hay. Really easy to drink. Good stuff.

Leighton (14404) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Growler at the cabin, NH. Pours a lightly hazy, light gold with a small, creamy white head. Beautiful nose with all kinds of heady citrus, tons of grapefruit and orange. Flavor follows perfectly with tons of juicy, wet citrus, touches of dry peel, faint fresh grass. Medium bodied with average, super smooth and creamy carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with nips of pine and grass, moderate sweet pale malts, continuous fresh grapefruit, orange and pineapple, hints of yeast and woody dryness. Lasting pithy citrus. Sublime.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thick lacing white head. In aroma, superb mix of pungent grassy and citrusy hops, meaty, menthol notes, wonderful. In mouth, nice and smooth lactic malt with loads ofl resinous hops, yet silly and smooth. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.

Drake (10703) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tropical and citrus notes, some herbal notes and pale malts. The taste is pale malts, citrus, tropical notes, some tart and earthy notes and a slight lingering bitterness. Medium-full bodied, well balanced. Really an exceptional beer.

Thanks to sean for this. Hazy yellow/gold pour, white head. Aroma is loaded with nice citrus, some wheat, light bready notes. Flavor is delicious. So full of citrus flavor, grains, light hops, yeast. Wonderful!

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Growler... Cloudy peach-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aromatic highlights are citrusy, musky, peppery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Nicely balanced. Fruity, rindy bitterness keeps ultra-pale malt sweetness in check. Moderately bitter, fuzzy fruit finish. Growler courtesy of landhoney!

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Growler @ home. Pours a hazy light yellow orange appearance with a white wheat. Somewhat spicy, light onion, herbal, pineapple, grapefruity aroma. A bit chewy, bready, spicy, lightly dank, grapefruity, garlic/onion, cracker flavor that finishes a bit spicy. Refreshing and just too fucken easy to drink. Really a nice and flavorful APA. Thanks JesusOfVT!

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours a cloudy golden yellow with one-finger length of foamy white head. Aroma brings out loads of floral hops and citrus zest, backed by some biscuity crackery malt - it’s got that classic Hill Farmstead meadow-like nose. Flavour is similar, bringing out super fresh floral hops, citrus zest, a little pine, a touch of pineapple, and some nice soft crackery malt to back. Extremely dry, crisp and refreshing, with a wonderful balance of flavours. One of the best thirst beers I’ve ever had - could drink litres of this stuff. Exceptional pale ale.

Sammy (9686) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
750 ml. growler from the brewery. Very floral hoppy, complex and fresh and welcoming. Cloudy grapefruit with fluffy head. Tremendous drinkability. Orange citrus, Simcoe? Seems to be a blend of American and British hops.Smooth drinker. An excellent pale, with perhaps the IBU of what used to be called an IPA.Thanks John.
