At Maple Shade. Hazy gold with absolutely no head; aroma is unique, slightly oily, rubbery and hoppy; Flava is sweet with hoppy notes; feels light with fizz; finishes balanced sweet and dry and sweet again. Funky unique beer

Draft at Newark. Pours cloudy yellow with a quarter inch of white foam. As it warms I got kinda of a spicy vibe from the nose. A bit of farmhouse on the tongue. Finishes clean. Very nice!

Pours a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Aroma has light citrus...lemony but not tart...and a spice i cant place. Flavor is lightly grassy...notable lemongrass...and just a hint of that spice (i guess its grains of paradise?). Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has a dry, wheaty quality. Refreshing.

On draft at the Lancaster location. The pour was coudy amber with a nice head. Phenolic and fruity aroma, spicing in the background. The flavor was phenolic (coriander and grains of paradise I suppose), banana esters, some citrus in the background. The body was dry and dull. Glad this wasn’t a Sammy Summer clone! Decent for the style.

On tap, Lancaster. Murky pour gold, some lacing. Sweet and grainy with a moderate clove spiciness. A fruity and refreshing zing. The Grains of Paradise with the Belgian yeast complimented each other nicely. Great summer beer. Nicely done IH.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice summer-style beer. This was very refreshing with lots of fruit flavors and some other interesting tastes. The beer poured a cloudy and hazy dark golden color with a thick and lacy white head. The aroma was slightly fruity, but balanced nicely with some bready malts. I tasted some lemon, grass and those grains of paradise in the body.

This poured a semi cloudy darker yellow color to orange with an off white head. Arooma was of medium spices, the grains of paradise and lemongrass are definitely there, along with lemony citrus hops. Flavor is light fruity and light spices, reminded me alot of Sam Adams summer Ale, Eh.
