3/29/13. Growler thanks to GT2! Hazy orange pour with a frothy khaki head. Big tropical fruit aroma with doughy pale malts and some citrus. Light but rich flavor with lots of maltiness and plenty of nice tropical fruits. Tasty, refreshing, and poundable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky gold, oily white head, considerable lacing. Doughy nose is light hop oil, Flavor is incredibly delicate, oily and just resinous with considerable dough. Throughout it all is a balancing honey, making the experience sweeter than expected, and better. Soft palate compliments the sweetness, leaving a key lime desert impression minutes after last sip. Totally unique.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Tap at tired Hands. Pours full haze glowing straw with medium meringue foam. Webby lacing. Nose is fresh tangerine, gamey kumquat. Taste is quite odd, moderate to heavier white sweet cream butter, mango juice, melon rind. Fresh almond sponge cake. Very light mouthfeel with sweet cream adding density. Drinkable, easy to love. 8/4/8/4/16=4.0 3/23/2013
1L growler two days old. Pours beautiful full haze glowing light orange. Thicker meringue head. Nose has fresh oatmeal, fresh pale malt grist, kumquat, tangerine. Taste is ultra refreshing, very light grapefruit/kumquat bitterness, quenching citrus juice, mild sweet cream butter. Palate is buoyant, quenching, fresh. The opposite of most IPAs these days. Could be moved to APA.

Hazy yellow-orange body, medium off-white head, soapy lacing. Nose is floral with soft grassy notes, grain and traces of citrus zest. Flavor is a bit more assertive with floral notes controlling. Mdium to light bodied, ventle carb, even bitterness and a nice refreshing finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tired hands with Linh, pat and Janine. Pours a beautiful bright, hazy peach orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is malty, grainy, light grass and hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of grain, grass, sweet malts and light crisp hop. Overall very sessionable, but too malty for my personal preference.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the source,Very murky yellow orange pour with medium white head, might have been one of the last pours, somewhat lasting, light clearish lacing. Aromas and flavor of floral hops, spice, and malts. This had a very bitter and dry profile. Good but I liked the Galapagos a lot better.

Pours a very hazy/cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has mild bready maltiness and juicy orange notes...leafy and floral. Flavor is fairly malty...almost a note of dry leaves...orange and citrus rind creep in and add some mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is rindy/bitter and dry.
