one of best beer that these merry jokesters have made yet! it tastes vaguely pubby, and like it’s been sprinkled with hops in the boil, and in the whirlpool. yeats strain is DEFINITELY in there, along with plenty of ions and fractals! yum.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
32oz growler thanks to MrChopin. Pours a slightly hazy gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose is really interesting, hand soap, chive, perfume, grass, straw, honey, mild spice. Flavor is fruity, lots of hand soap but in a nice way, honey, perfume, tropical fruit, lemon, white grape, a little coconut water. Clean, refreshing finish. Really nice.

Back an hour later, adding to the review. light gold, heavy lacing and white wisps. Heavy cedar and pine nose, ultra refined, controlled. Flavor equally piney, soft and woody, pleasant dough underneath with a clean body and carbonation, everything on display. My favorite TH beer, insanely delicate and quaffable, nuanced and controlled.

On tap at the Hands. A little caramel & marzipan taste, with some fruit in the nose. Oat smoothness, centennial hops. Not really an English style, more like an APA.
