UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Can shared at Travlr’s departure tasting. Poured into a pilsener glass showing well filtered yellow with two fingers of foam. The nose shows notes of lime, kiwi, and pears. The palate is lightly carbonated and medium bodied with the same light flavors of pears, lime, kiwi, and pineapple. Clean and easy, a simple beer.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Can @ Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Clear golden beer with a soapy white head. Somewhat on the sweet side, but it’s at least acceptable. Some gummy bears, peach, and apricot. Lots of orange marmalade as well. Very, very minimal bitterness. Some bread, caramel, and stone fruits. Kind of a grassy finish. It’s okay.

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours amber with a thick, creamy, white head that stays permanently. Wild amounts of lacing. Nose is piney with heavy citrus notes. Taste is decidedly bitter, but with a solid malt backbone. Thin to medium body. Excellent brew.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Can from a female friend who just came back from Vermont, and is the head chef of a local brewpub, and she kicks major ass. The pour is hazy golden with 3-fingers of fluffy, white head. Nose is pale malt, florals, tangerine. Tastes pale malty, with notes of florals, pine, tangerine, white pepper. Smooth finish. Yet another excellent IPA from these guys.
