murky hay, large bubbled white, laces. Oily nose bursts with tangerine and old pot, bit dusty with paper accents. Slick body, oily fruits early, sweeter than flavor with melon balancing the tangerine, papery middle before a bit of glue through the sticky end, no sugar anywhere.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, citrus fruit, and grassy hops. Taste of bready malt, citrus zest, pineapple, and grass. Wow awesome!!!

Growler. Pours a dull orange/ yellow. A light aroma of citrus and grass. Flavor is bitter citrus peel with very light onion-grassy flavor. Very nice creamy mouth feel. The oats must give it that luxurious mouth feel. There is a sweetness, might be accentuated by the hop flavor and body. Pleasant lingering bitterness.

illidurit (2124) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Growler. Pours completely turbid gold with a white froth. Aroma is crushing grapefruit mayhem Nelson explosion. Flavor isn’t quite as pungent, opting instead for a softer, rounder fruitiness with a resinous end. Not all that bitter, but pleasantly dry.

Hazy golden straw colored body, medium white head, soapy lacing. Bright grapefruit and lemon, light funky vegetal quality, some weed, tropical notes, and Sauvignon grapes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly assertive bitterness. Nice.

Damico (2511) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours gorgeously thick peach and orange juice with a creamy white head, so nice! Aroma brings it fresh ripe tropical fruit pleasant in the nose with nice pungent earthiness. Flavor brings the unique elusive and one of my favorite hop profiles, unique citrus earthiness with a balanced bitter ending. I dare even use the word bitter for fear of a subtle negative connotation.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a medium white head...heavy lacing and good retention. aroma has lots of citrus...orange, grapefruit...some grassy/herbal notes almost scallion. Flavor follows suit...little funky with lots of citrus and melon...still some herbal notes in here. Mouthfeel is light/mediumand silky with a bitter fruity/funky/herbal dry finish.
