Tap flight at the brewery. Full disclosure: this beer came after my plate of house made pickles. That said, the beer still tastes hoppy and delicious. Very light yellow pour with a pretty dense white head. Not much aroma or body. The taste is bright citrus hops with a good bitter bite. More body would make this really nice but I know that’s not what the brewer intended.

On tap at Tired Hands. If it wouldn't raise DUI suspicions, I would want to have a HopHands car air freshener. My girlfriend wouldn't be crazy about it, but I could breathe in this beautiful hoppiness all day. Oh yea...it tastes great too.

1L growler, sent from callmemickey (thanks a lot, Ryan), pours a cloudy golden-tinged yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of piney hops, a little citrus zest, and crackery malt - very pleasant pine-dominated nose, though it’s a pretty subtle in the aromatics department. Flavour brings out loads of crackers, some mild piney hops, and a hint of citrus zest. Very clean and crisp, characterized by the front-and-centre crackery quality. Highly drinkable, refreshing and quite dry, with moderate hoppiness. Excellent thirst-quencher.

Growler @ the Mini-Tasting, Naples. Cheers to Crosamich for scoring this. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. Light floral hop nose. A bit o’ pee. Some lemon rind and general citrus. Hints of sweet canned pears. The taste is more of the same. Light pear and white grape. Moderate citrus hop bite. Super light palate. Only a touch of bready malt. Soft carbonation. Overall, pretty refreshing.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow, almost no head. Nose is piney with hints of tangerine and coconut. very nice mouth feel, very bitter and the ABV of 5.2% is of course barely noticeable. Clean finish, lovely pine cone. Very drinkable.

Growler. Light yellow pour with a nice white head. Great lacing on this one if you’re kinky and into that sort of thing. Juicy fruit hop aroma. Flavor had some notes of lime zest that kep the beer from being one dimensional. Malt takes a backseat on this one. Clean finish, crisp, minimal bitterness. I’m convinced, this brewery lifts.

Growler at home with Aaron. Pour is golden yellow with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, weedy, grapefruity, light citrus, biscuity, straw, a touch of earth, and dough in the aroma. Taste is weedy, grassy, pungently juicy, tangy, biscuity, herbs, fruity, and light bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really nice session pale ale and a real treat to try.

Growler, thanks Frank! Pours very slightly hazed golden with plenty even white head that settles down to a uniform layer. Tangerine citrus, some onion and a hint of cattiness. Very light and balanced and with malt and yeast really just proping up the hop aromatics. Light crackery malt, some peppery yeast character, slightly citrus and bitter hop finish. Drinks super easy.
