on tap at black back, waterbury. unclear bright golden pour with a creamy and ffrothy whtie head offering excellent retention and strong lacing. bright citrus, whole cones, herbal-grassy nobleness, gentle pine, weed, very lightly toasted maltiness - specialty, lagering fruitiness surprisingly making its way through the massive fragrant hop bill - peaches, apricots, clementines. average carbonation, light body - oily, surprisingly dry and crisp citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced and very tasty. my first non-BA or perhaps hoppy lower abv brew from the bruery - for the third time, i’m surprised if not flabbergasted. dangerous drinkability.

GABF 2010, really liked this. medium golden pour. Its all about the hops here. Big Simcoe? aroma & flavor. Bitterness just dominates here in a good fashion. Tons a flavor. Well done

Nice hoppy nose with somewhat of a preserved malt base. Despite the lagering, the elements seem to work well in preservation here. Pours gold with ok head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness and a tough of sugary sweetness. Some booze evident. Tap at Boundary Road.

TheAlum (6825) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft on tap at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Pours a nice well hazed golden pour, a dulled glow, touches of orange, golden glow in the body. Frothy brighter white head atop laces well, films as a nice layer. Aromas are well hopped, lemons and florals, some grass and gentle bready and doughy sweetness. Some tangerine, growing fruity hops. Earth, and some straw. Initial is really hoppy, nicely bitter with grapefruit, florals, some grass. Some fruity Amarillo fruit, gentle gumball, and soap. Oranges, tangerines, firmly assertively bitter hops up front. Middle is some fruit, crisp bready malts and straw, mellow sweetness but a big fruity hop presence from that girthy hop load. Firmly bitter and hoppy as we round the corner into the backend, melon and bitter florals, grapefruit, touches of resiny pine, dry earthy florals, good bitterness lingers on. Touch of heat, this offers some bigger ABV, mellow sweetness. Well hopped and tasty offering. Glad to finally get to try this.

Had this on tap at World of Beer, thanks to raveskdr. Poured a clear golden hue, with a small-sized white head. Aroma was herbal hops, citrus, and some sweet malts. Flavor was hoppy notes, sweet malts. Pretty refreshing, solid brew - not too sweet.

jackl (6737) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Keg @ Mekong. Hazy amber pour with a tiny white head. The nose is full of mango. Pretty bright, mild underarm. Very much the aroma of a ballsy IPA. The taste is of mellow orange sherbet. Toasted white bread. Grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, crisp. Pretty tasty stuff.

AmEricanbrew (6608) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Clear golden color/ lasting white head. Big ass ganja smoke, grassy, cat spray aromas. medium body. Nice hoppy, grassy, dry hay flavors on a solid pale malt base brew. very good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6336) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a murky apricot color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very strong sweet peach, apricot, orange and fruit cocktail. The flavor was very strong peach, apricot, pineapple, orange and fruit cocktail. Turns a bit dry and harsh then follows with a long finish of peach, apricot, pineapple and fruit cocktail. Thick and full bodied. Outstanding!

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at the Birch. Golden amber with a sticky but thin top. Drinks with a definite resin-heavy hop assertiveness, but is exceptionally easy going and drinkable. The 7% ABV is somewhat evident, but not overpowering. Excellent. (#4974, 4/6/2013)

Tap. Pours clear golden with a large creamy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is light pine, citrus, Passionfruit, guava, musk melon. Flavor follows, light sweet and medium bitter, fruity, tropical, a bit dank. Pretty nice finish with lingering tropical bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel
