32 oz growler... The clementines seem to come through much more in this batch... or maybe it’s the smaller, flip-top growler that did a better job of preserving the beer’s 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!
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

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.

From Growler. Hazy straw color with a white head. Floral, citrus, clementines, and rinds. Very nice and at 5.5%, I could drink this one all day long.

Tap at Tired Hands for the HandFarm release. Pours a full haze glowing pineapple juice. Big sheety white lace. Nose is clementine, tangerine, sweet cream butter, gamey/super fresh key lime pie. Taste is ultra soft, low bitterness, sweet cream, white cake, yum! Finish is insane: whipped cream, pineapple, key lime, bitter orange rind. Tastes like liquid key lime pie. Easy 4.2 level APA but I’m digging this super soft, fresh key lime pie flavor. Quenching, sessionable.

Citrus-forward pale ale, found it to be a bit thin in body but smooth and refreshing.

1L growler, sent from callmemickey (thanks a lot, Ryan), pours a hazy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, a bit of caramel-tinged biscuity malt, and some citrusy notes. Flavour brings out loads of floral hops, pine, and some biscuity malts – a slight tangerine quality to it. Very refreshing and full of flavour for a 5% beer. Excellent stuff.

Growler courtesy of Thom shared with Dallas and pat. Pours a bright hazy orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is funky melon and light bitter citrus fruits. Mouthfeel is medium and juicy with the clementine character really dominating. Additional notes of tangerines, funky melon and bitter citrus. Really great fruit pa.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus orange, toast, grass, and Nelson’s. Taste of citrus, orange, juicy, grassy, and grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

8oz pour at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow with some frothy, white head. Zesty nose, orange, chive, garlic scape, tangerine, soap, pine. Flavor is nice, citrus peel bite, lemon, soap, some yeast, orange. Zesty, bitter, refreshing finish. Really good. Very drinkable.
