Growler, shared by Leighton. It pours hazy pale amber with a medium white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, earthy, toast, light spice, wood, candy, barnyard and light mint notes. The taste is crisp, pine, orange, tangerine, mango, sherbet, skunky hops, light alcohol, resin and some menthol notes. Medium body and fine carbonation. Tasty, approachable and rather drinkable. Nice work.

Growler shared in London - picked up at the brewery five days prior. Pours clear gold with a white cream topping. The nose is all pine and well-ripened citrus fruits. Medium sweet flavor with ripe, sticky orange, light tangerine. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Good and resinous on the finish with further pine and orange, moderate bready malts. Very tasty. A bit punchy and sticky but it does achieve some nice balance.

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Thanks to Leighton for this evenings New England haul. Lightly hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is soft and dry. Resinous hops, skunky and piney as well. A bare whisper of citrus. Finishes dry with hop spice dominant. Found this a little astringent to be great but still a good beer.

Growler from the brewery: Pours clear orange / amber with a decent white head. Aroma pine-heavy with some citrus. Tastes every bit as piney as the aroma, nice grapefruit flavor, and a delicious hoppy finish. Excellent beer. I like it better than Julius which is another excellent brew.

The beer is transparent and golden with a broken white head. The aroma offers dank hops, tropical fruit. A delicious hop forward beer. Citrus and fresh hops. Smooth with some lingering hop bitterness and orange peel. Really tasty.

Growler from Ernesto, thanks bud! Pours a slight hazy glowing orange with minimal head. Aroma is pine and citrus bomb. Taste is more citrus as it is cold and almost a Cutie like pulp thing going on. The citrus is just out of this world as if they added orange juice. Pine is great in here and does taste like fresh pine needles. This thing is great and a truly unique take on an IPA with seemingly no extra/fancy ingredients.
