I thought I have already tried this, but Im finally rating it. Pours a semi cloudy golden color, with an off white head. Citrus, grassy, piney hops, doughy bread, and some sweetness. A simple, drinkable beer. Good thirst quencher.

On tap @ The Reservoir (Waterbury). Clear golden/orange wit a small white head and some lacing. Aroms if fruity with citrus, lot of hops, grassy notes and light floral presence. Taste is slight sweet with citrus, fruits and grass with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly sticky and dry finish. Very good beer. Main feature is the large amount of hops in the aroma. Drinkable and quenching.

Growler courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy yellow with a huge white head. Nose is a shit-ton of hops. It sure is an India Pale Lager... there is a bit of light malt in there, but this one is mostly piney hops with hints of citrus and floral. Flavor is a West-Coast IPA, but a bit lighter in body. This one was a great surprise. Very nice, indeed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden color, frothy white head, nice carbonation. Sharp hoppy nose that is fairly herbal with oranges and peaches. The mouth is a bit heavy, full on hop assault, but sufficient enough backbone to balance everything out. Big bad bitter finish. Very aggressive. Hops just linger and linger. Fantastic and really well executed.

Tap at Logan’s. Golden with small head. Not at all what I expected. Fruity, peach and vanilla. Crisp lager bitter finish. Really tasty.
