You don’t need a magic mirror to see the lure of this beer. It’s brewed with seven varieties of experimental dwarf hops. These hops are so called because of their uncommon growing method—shorter hedgerows rather than tall trellis systems—that yields a denser heap of cones with unique flavors that diverge from their full-grown botanical counterparts. Each year new and different varieties are grown in this method, creating untried and exciting shifts in hop character.

It’s essential to let this beer warm a bit. The aroma is mostly clove, wheat and hints of banana. The flavor is dominated by the yeast... in a mostly enjoyable way. Lots of spicey funk and a bit of citrus bitterness. The wheat also comes through in the flavor though more for mouthfeel and body.

Bottle at hotel room fart share @RBWG 2016. Hay yellow liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of lemon peel, bread, grain, earth and citrus. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of lemon zest, grain and earth. Light perfume. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent.

Bottle split in the Fart Dungeon ... breakfast rake ... 04/02/16. Hazed yellow with a decent off white swirl. Nose is earthy hop, lemon zing, light spice, orange peel, yeast esters. Taste comprises light vanilla, lemon zip, light bread dough, straw, Belgian yeast strokes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light hop trace in the close. Ok badger, refreshing enough ride.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks Leighton. Nose is strong wit yeast character and spicing, lots of coriander. Modest hopping in the nose. Hazy light gold with small white head. Taste is moderately citrus forward with a creamy mouthfeel, like a light citrus smoothie. Decent in that the hops don’t seem to clash, but the aroma isn’t my delight.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle shared in the hotel room during RBWG 2016. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a frothy white head. The nose has some rindy lemon, pith, pale wheat. Light to medium sweet flavor with grainy wheat, lemon peel, light bitter hay, grass. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Rindy citrus in the finish, with some spicy yeast, mild dry wheat, more lemon peel. Not bad.

Poured from the bottle into a plastic cup to drink. The beer had a hazy and cloudy off-gold color with a good-sized foamy white head with good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured a mix of citrus and zesty notes, along with some spice, fruits, and a bit of yeast and pine. The beer had a modest citrus and wheat taste with some bitterness and a bit of spice. It had good carbonation and life with a filling mouthfeel and slightly dry body.

Ferris (9775) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Draft - Lots of bright citrus, especially lemon zest. Hazy light gold with a decent white head. Bright citrus hops, perfume and effervescent with a nice bitterness. Nice.

Not a fan of the aroma. Kind of skunky with some wheat. I was really surprised when I took a sip. The flavor is completely different from the aroma, and there’s a solid hop flavor and bitterness.

Nuffield (3940) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Golden/orange with a massive head and sticky lacing. Yeast, marmalade and coriander aroma. Flavors pass fairly quickly on the way to a long, building bitterness. Fine but not my thing. Bottle.
