COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isn’t there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just don’t call it "too bookoo!"

This light gold beer has a sweet citrus aroma. It has a big bold hop flavor and finishes clean with little aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JerseyHophead (21) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a clear, burnt yellow with medium carbonation. Nice piney, grassy nose. The mosaic really comes through on the nose. It’s got a light to medium bodied mouth feel with good carbonation. It’s pretty hop forward. The body of the flavor is made up of grassy hop and pils and then it becomes more piney on the tale end as the simcoe takes over. If finishes a bit sweet and sticky with hops lingering on the tongue. Overall, a great IPA from a great brewery. I can definitely see myself going back for more of this one.

A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a fat-two-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a light honey color that shows a mostly clear, pale amber tinged, bright golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a huge tropical fruit hop note to it that is redolent of guava, peach concentrate, lychee, pineapple, and peppery, perfectly ripe, almost tart kumquat zest. The nose is expressively hoppy and veritably jumps out of the glass.

The beer is pretty dry, though there is a light sweetness that is mostly accentuated by the ripe hop fruit character. The finish has a solid, biting bitterness to it that is accentuated by a peppery, herbal hop character that leans towards woody oils; this really lingers for . Notes of guava, lychee, and ripe tangelo zest up front yield to peppery, herbaceous, hemp-like, and pine needle leaning character, with the latter balancing out the former. This really finishes nice and light, there is just enough body to not allow the aggressive hop character to completely run rough-shod; eminently quaffable though, and one of those beers that can disappear way faster than you are expecting. The malt character plays barely a supporting role, as it should, a touch of hay like grain character and a suggestion of pale, cracker like malt.

This is a nicely fresh, aggressively hopped IPA; definitely hits my need for a hop fix, and it serves as a nice digestif for the Indian food I just ate.

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma is rather strong with herbs, weed, pine and fruitiness. Rich and floral flavour with strong bitterness, sweet orange juice, pils malt, strong herbal notes and some mild graininess. Medium bodied and a big, dry, very bitter finish. I just love Mosaic hops, but somehow pils malt is a bit too dominant here malt-wise. Maybe this just isn’t as fresh as it should be. Still enjoyable.

olio (6145) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
65 cl bottle. No freshness info.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Nice fruity and hoppy on the nose, floral notes, pine needles and some grass. Caramel malts on the flavor, citric fruits with oily and resinous hops. Slick bitter palate. Nice, refreshing and balanced, nothing special though.

Une bouteille brune qui ne porte aucune date. Petite trouvaille bien intéressante dans cet état du sud des États-Unis. Une belle robe orangée habite dans mon verre. La mousse s’installe pour ne jamais mourir. Une dentelle est complètement déroulée. Quelle prestation! Le nez est frais, très frais et bien parfumé par des ananas, des oranges, des pamplemousses et des melons mûrs. Wow! Au goût, les agrumes acidulés sont fiers et forts. Quel délice! Les malts pâles (pils, avoine, seigle?) comprennent leur rôle. D’autres fruits récompensent mes papilles. En bouche, un liquide au corps-moyen faible avec un pétillement vif et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une sensation en bouche qui me rappelle certaines pales ales brassées au Vermont. Une finale fruitée avec du pamplemousse et florale avec des relents de conifères. Délicieuse sur toute la ligne. Une IPA comme on peut en trouver à Greensboro. J’écrirais Hill Farmstead sur cette bouteille et il n’y aurait aucune note inférieure à 4 sur 5. Tchin tchin du bord de la piscine!
