COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bursting with 3.5lbs / BBL of pungent American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. A soft, pillowy mouthfeel and rounded bitterness makes Julius very, very easy to drink. Youíve been warned.

Taster from a growler at RBNEG. Supplied by either Reynolds314 or Ernesto987, not sure, kudos however. Poured into a wine glass. Pours a sexy glowing orange with a one finger white head. Some lace. Tropical fruit & citrus aroma assaults the olfactory senses, stunning you temporarily. A second whiff and you pick up some minor background malt. Slightly bitter on the tongue, but still plenty of fruit on the taste. Full bodied and it leaves you wanting more. Very nice.

Fresh growler shared by Reynolds314. Bright yellow color, large lasting head. Aroma is ton of bright fruit and grassy hops.

Flavor is juicy with fruity and grassy like the aroma. Mangos, peaches, stone fruit with lots of pale malt with some sweet bready backbone. Some grassy hops with hints of bitter grapefruit however, the juicy fruits take this over. Low bitterness when itís all said and done. Borderline drinking a fruit cup. Still very nice stuff.

Reynolds314 supplied the growler. To oversized snifter, it pours a dark syrupy orange with a with a sudsy off-white head 1 finger in length. Smells and tastes of west coast hops, salad greens, and tart apples. Utterly enjoyable.

My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit zest and grassy hop resins whirl within this IPAís honey coulis, building a tasty example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the misty blond.
-Mouthfeel is slick and perhaps too softly carbonated.
-This one didnít feel as vibrant as the superb Tornado growler we had picked up on the same day. Not sure if itís a recipe or freshness issue.
-Canít wait to get a pint of this on tap at their bigger and badder brewery!

Growler.

750ml fliptop courtesy of ClarkVV. Thanks, dude. Opened at a deyholla tick-a-thon. Pours a deeper dark amber orange hue, copper glow with decent haze. Frothy offwhite head sits atop and stays as a goof frothy layer, sticks around and laces well. Nice. Aromas are bigger citrus rind, lots of orange, some grapefruit juice, some lemon, and florals. Some sweetness, fruit, big orange and grapefruit hybrid life is juicy and lovely. A touch sweet. Initial lighter end of medium bodied, big juicy orange juice, grapefruit, citrus and pithy elements. Some gentle bread, florals and cleaner dry bitter qualities. Middle still sustains that juicy citrus element, lots of orange and grapefruit, tangerine and some lemon. Wow. Juicy, intense, dryness and citric elements creep and hit the backend well. Some juiciness, nicely dry with touches of gumball, melon, faint tropical fruit back here. Some soap, melon, really good flavors. A touch of body, Iíd say itís a touch sweet, but that sweetness is truly derived from a rich citrus flavor element. Lots of flavor, rich, really citrus driven. Very impressive flavor intensity. Nice stuff.

Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a pine and grapefruit combination with a hint of citrus. Flavor has a more citrus with a bit of pine and grapefruit backing.

Growler shared by Jomonobo ! Pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of foam. The nose has some tropical punch with notes of mango, pineapple, grass and hints of pine. The palate follows with a juicy round mouthfeel and lots of lingering fruit to mingle with the medium bitter finish. Would gladly crush a few glasses in a sitting !

Growler thanks to ClarkVV. Pours hazy orange amger with a small white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is strong as soon as the growler is popped, citrus, pine, passionfruit, grapefruit, dank goodness. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter, juicy dank and rich. Medium plus body, oily mouthfeel. Tiny bit harsh on the far finish, but all in all definitely one of the good ones.
