On tap at the Town Hall Lanes fresh hop event. I like the Simcoe hops, but this one again didn’t overly impress me with the fresh take on hops.

Draft - Fresh tropical fruit, nice and sweet. Copper clear and a thin head. Fruity again with some orange and resin, balanced with some malts. Nice fresh hop if a little sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2L growler, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy bronze with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out fresh resinous hops, doughy malts, and some pine. Flavour brings out loads of doughy malts, some resinous hops, and pine. Very fresh and resinous, with a doughy quality. Finishes very dry and resinous. Great fresh hop IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Consumed on 10-9-13. Pours a clear, light amber with a small amount of taupe head. Pine, apricot, and watermelon scents in the aroma. Smell would benefit from being stronger. Delicious, juicy, hoppy taste features pine and grapefruit elements. Cookie and biscuit malt base, but the hops definitely dominate. Lemon and mineral water flavors. Some clay/dirt bitterness. Dry finish. Long, highly likable, dry aftertaste. Refreshing. Medium to full body. Crisp and lively in the palate. Drinkable yet filling. This is an excellent IPA and truly my kind of beer. Town Hall is expert at just this sort of hops-dominated yet somehow still well-balanced and high-quality brew. Rate is the beer in which the taste significantly surpasses the promise of the aroma, but this is just such a brew. It is delicious and hits the spot. It’s perfect for a warm but crisp fall day like the day in which I consumed it.

On tap at the brewery, lightly hazy golden amber pour with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of big fresh resinous and piney hops, taste is similar, great earthy hops and pine notes, just like Wet last year!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Apricot color with tiny white head. Some citrus aroma but not overwhelming. Medium body with some citrus notes and strong bitter finish. High carbonation cleanses the palate too quickly

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewpub, served in a seasonal sampler. Pours a mostly clear golden-amber color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, sweet malts, and sweat. The aroma really popped with grapefruit. Medium-bodied, with a resinous, citrusy, bitter mouthfeel. Grew on me as it opened up after a little while.
