Drat at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much in the tongue or nose. Finishes clean. Pretty boring for style.

Pours a fairly clear medium golden color with a huge meringue head that prevented me from pouring this in one shot. Smells of citrus and a hint of pine. Heavy on the grapefruit and lemon with a fairly solid bready sweet malt backbone. The flavor follows the aroma bread citrus and pine with a faint hint of wild yeasty phenols. Medium body with a huge amount of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, nothing special, but nothing objectionable either.

GBBF. Cask - presumably a special as there was nothing like a 6.0% IPA on the database before I added it. Description taken from the GBBF Programme. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate with superfine carbonation. A fair amount of grain with a dash of honey. Mild tangerine - orange citrus with a whisper of peach. Mild fresh hop spice. Carbonated sting in the finish. Another great condition cask US beer at GBBF - BSF have done a great job!

Pours a clear lemon yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is very floral with a mix between a bouquet and hay. Flavor is very floral, mild grass and a breadiness. Body is light and crisp with active carbonation. Like the floral kick.

12 oz. bottle labeled as “Hop Express” Fresh bottle from Julio’s Liquors in Westborough, MA. The best attribute of this beer is the balance. The malt to hops ratio is nice. Slightly hazy orange color, thin white head, light lace. Decent hop flavors through the entire sip. Nothing that you have to seek out but... for me it’s a nice standard, every day drinker if you live in Western MA.
