Pours a hazy yellow golden color with two fingers of white foam. Nose is a pleasant mix of light cracker malt, citrus pith, unripe pineapple and a hint of pine. Palate follows nicely with great mix of citrus hop juice, soft mouthfeel, hints of earthy pine lingers in the bitterness. Highly drinkable, crushing this !

2 L growler pour on 4/24 and drank on 4/26. Pours a straw yellow with orange undertones. Thin white head that has some retention. Faint hoppy aroma. Sweet taste with a quick bitter finish. A sessionable blond ale with enough hops to make me happy but not ecstatic. Overall a pretty good beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
64 oz growler filled April 19, 2014. Poured into a snifter. Bright hazy yellow/pale orange body with a thin cap of white foam. Nose is cracker malts and huge juicy hops. Mango and cantaloupe with a little grass. Just so damn inviting. Taste follows with a huge tropical wall of hops. Mango, papaya, and melons. Finishes dry with some crisp bready malts and a low IBU. Light carbonation and a super low abv makes this crazy drinkable. Not as good as the Citra version but it’s definitely up there. Eureka kick’s ass!

Straight tasty sessionable blonde ale which is reminiscent of a Hill Farmstead blonde ale. Aroma is tropical and citrus fruits with some fresh cut grass. Tasty and chuggable.

750ml growler dated September 26, 2013. 3.9% ABV. Big thanks to Mark for this treat!
Pours quite hazy yellow with a one finger white head that settles to a small cap and leaves some good lacing behind on the glass.
Aroma is a nice dose of Galaxy hops with fruity notes, tropical fruit and citrus, underneath is some light bready malt notes with a hint of spice. Good strength.
Flavor is more of the same, tropical fruits, fruity and citrusy hops, bready malt backbone, a hint of spice, a hint of alcohol, pretty dry overall with good bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, a little sticky, good carbonation.
Ahhh a nice treat! I love Galaxy hops and they are showcased nicely in this Blonde Ale. Pretty light, crisp and refreshing. Tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml growler poured into a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of galaxy hops, some light malts, a hint of grain/cereal common in Tree House beers, and a little dough. Flavor the same with a nice amount of hops. Average texture. A good beer for how light it is.
