64 oz growler from the source consumed the next day. Cloudy yellow orange with a brief head leaving white suds. Nose is clementines, pine and toffee. Simple, crisp and clean. Juicy medium body with a soft, sexy tingle. Finishes crisp, dry and pithy. Taste is the same clementine and pine with the zest adding a beautiful bitter note more hoppy than citrus. Iíve been waiting for the light to pop out of my head for a while but in the meantime this brew will have to do.

Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, tiny white head. Aroma of citrus and subtle tropical fruit. Taste is similar.

32 oz growler... The clementines seem to come through much more in this batch... or maybe itís the smaller, flip-top growler that did a better job of preserving the beerís freshness and subsequent fruitiness. Although a bit thin, this is an enjoyable and thirst-quenching pale ale. Super bright and refreshing with energetic carbonation. Fresh growler courtesy of a very generous boamr!

Original rating
64oz Growler... Cloudy light yellow pour with no head. The nose furnishes fruity hops and clementine accompanied by a rumor of musky, funky hops. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is perfectly-balanced, mildly fruity and stupid drinkable. However, all-in-all, this brew is fairly bland with a short, crisp, clean finish. Flawless, but unremarkable. Big-time thanks to landhoney for sharing this ridiculously refreshing pale ale with the South Florida Brew Crew!

Original score = 3.2

Pailhead (5274) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Growler: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, light grapefruit, and grass. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a one finger white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and mild pineapple. The finish has light-moderate pine, light grapefruit, and faint floral notes. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation.

dmac (4340) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft at the brewpub after the Hand Farm release. Poured a rather ugly super cloudy milky straw gold with an average sized foamy white head. Aroma is JUICY, loads of citrus pulp and some rind along with slight toast and grassy hops. Smooth body overall with light carbonation and average to lighter carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma with a slight addition of lightly buttered popcorn hiding behind loads of juicy citrus fruits. Great stuff.

Amarillo right up front and citrus a but in the background. A very sensory-explosive brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

julian (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow straw color with nice thin white head. Doesnít seem to stick around much though. Aroma is pungent dank hops predominantly, followed by grapefruit rind, some slight lemony citrus tang. Taste follows. Nice crisp bitterness, lots of grapefruit and dankness. Easy drinking, perfect carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel and nice aftertaste. Sharing this growler but could crush this by myself EASY.

Wow. Thanks to Josh Young for the gem. And its a GEM! Pours a lightly hazy straw color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is marvelous. The orange notes meld together with the spicy hops so well. I get orange, grapefruit, honey and a light herbal note. Flavor is so wonderful. Hoppy but not bitter. Juicy, orange zest, lemons, light pine hops, some grassiness...this beer is beautiful. Wow.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy greenish straw color with medium tightly bubbled foamy white head. Very nice lacing patterns. The color of the beer was unlike any I have seen, really did resemble a murky mountain dew as another reviewer stated. Aromas and taste of light grapefruit, clementines, and other zesty orange notes. Not getting much Nelson out of it, but i do detect some amarillo. Well carbonated, lighter bodied. I liked this one but not as much as others did. Re-rate, this newer batch is killer, all kinds of fruit juice and hop notes, more balanced and juiced out this time around. Liking this hop juice.
