3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with white head, nose is floral and herbal hops. Taste is rich with sprucy hops that is not quite my favorite style, but can’t complain about a lot of hops! A bit of sweet in the middle leads to a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler via trade with tytoanderso - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Lively carbonation. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is pine hops with a touch of citrus and resin. Flavor is full of hops. Well, so is the finish for that matter. Medium body. Very nice. Thanks Ty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler courtesy of tytoanderso in another overflowing box crammed with piles of amazing beers. Not only did he send this growler, but there was a second Town Hall growler full of their LSD. Took both of them camping at Lake George and drank it at the picnic table with a fire roaring in the late afternoon while watching the sun set over the lake. Pours a clear golden orange with a large creamy bone white head. Nice big citrus presence and a bit of caramel malt. Medium bodied, with very nice carbonation (especially for being a growler fill that had survived shipment to NY, then got put in a cooler full of ice for two days). Nice caramel and malt notes, light grapefruit presence starts showing up early. Finishes with a nice long grapefruit and quinine bitterness. Very tasty and gorgeous with hot dogs, baked beans, and a big ol’ fire. Thanks again Ty.

Pours a golden color. Medium head. On tap at the brewery. Citrus hop notes with spice. Alcohol bite to it. Kidn of a different hop taste. Was expecting more of an DIPA type taste but I would call this a strong ale.

Gold color with a medium head. Light citrus aroma. Spicy orange flavor. Strongly acidic bitterness. Faint malt backbone. After warming a bit, fresh hop taste and flowers start to come out.
