Growler, thanks MrChopin. Small off-white head atop lightly hazed apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, light apple, faint pineapple. Light-medium body, light acidity. Surprised how little it tastes like a cider.

Growler shared at Dadsgiving, big thanks to Dallas, 24/11/13. Hazed blonde with a thin off white covering. Nose is light fart, earthy hoppage, bitter orange, grass, pine. Taste comprises dank hops, pine resin, grass, orange pith, pear juice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy fruit tang in the closure. Decent hybrid.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Growler at Dadsgiving! Pours a lightly hazed yellow gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Musky and cheesy on the nose, funky. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet and funky, a touch of acidity, crisp and bright. Tangy apples and a bit of musk into the finish. Very nice.

jredmond (5306) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Growler at Dadsgiving 2013. Pours a light body with light haze and white soapy lacing. Aroma is apples, light citric hops, sugary spice and wheat. Mouthfeel is super light with notes of apple, light citric hops, pears, light & smooth funky character - maybe from the simcoe. Nice easy drinking, fruity pale ale.

4oz pour at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with some frothy, white head. Nose of lemon, apple, honey, a little pear, some starfruit. Flavor is well blended, tart apple, juicy, lemon, spritzy lemon-lime sida. Clean finish. Very well made.

TheEpeeist (3332) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2013
On tap at Tired Hands. Clear straw with a white head. Nose is musk, orange peel, grass and honey. Medium light with a soft tingle. Taste is citrus pith and peel, green apple, sour pineapple and pine. Not much fruit coming out in this one.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2013
translucent lemon, thin white was drops slightly leaving ample lacing. Oily pine nose, lightly dank and metallic. Flavor bursts with juice up front, lime dominant--think Greek virgins dropping grapes into your mouth. Then it gets crusty with dough accents and orange on the back palate. Thin, lightly salty end, bit metallic. A bit all over, but another low abv winner.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
hands culton hop: double dry hopped with simcoe, on cask, pours super murky, with medium to large white head that sticks around for a minute or two. Aromas of lemon, simcoe, crisp apples, pear, oats, and minerals. Flavor is subtle tart lemon, grains, wood, light cider, and some juicy hop notes courtesy of the simcoe dry hopping. Overall this is somewhat muted, none of the ingredients truly win out. Medium bodied. Finishes a tad grainy and tart. Overall I dig it for its earthiness and sessionability.
