3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Sean’s Tasting (Ann Arbor, MI). Pours a nice more well hazed golden orange hue, a nicer glow, a bit deeper glow with some nice haziness. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are floral and citrus, a decent fruit kick. Florals, grass, and bready malts. A bit dry and bitter as it settles. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a nice floral kick with lemon, some grapefruit, and grass. Firm bitter and dry front end. Middle is a bit of citrusy kick, bigger florals. Touches of dryness, bready malts, and florals. Some mandarin orange, grapefruit and florals. A bit dry and bitter, nice florals, some powder and florals, some grass. Backend is dry, a bit of grapefruit rind and juice. Some nice kick on the finish, grapefruit and a touch of bubblegum, melon. Pretty solid.

2L growler pouring at The Bruery Reserve Society tasting. Low haze orange pour with rich foam and great retention. Nose is catty, bright hops with lemon and potpourri. Gamey melon like mango and jackfruit come through. Taste is soft, bright melon, potpourri, quenching and rich butterscotch. Rich palate with pine sap, forest, grapefruit peel, and hop resin balanced by butterscotch and cream. Fantastic. A new brewing prodigy it seems.

Tap half pour $3 super delicious IPAis awful golden color that has a honey translucent appearance. This is good stuff. The boquet is a hop heads dream. The freshness of the beers that they produce is amazing. Flavor is big big hops and bitterness that sticks to the tongue. Awesome chewy grain in the flavor. Fabulous.

On tap at Hog’s Apothecary, Oakland. Pours cloudy blonde with a rich off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty toffee flavor that slips easily into bitterness. Smooth and well-crafted.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery in tulip and later that evening from growler in pint glass. Sllightly cloudy yellow gold. Brewery pour had all kinds of weird stuff going on nose from expected dankness to gasoline and red clay dustiness....not particularly pleasing but though provoking. Grapefruit pith finish on a pretty solid malt core, with more dustiness and cobwebs. Growler pour had none of this weirdness, and was just a nice pretty straightforward West Coast IPA.
