Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2014, Olympia, London. A light golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, sweet tropical fruit aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, tropical fruit, slightly wheaty, slight sweetness, really mellow and incredibly drinkable. I could guzzle this all evening. Lovely IPA from Vermont.

1/2 Growler from Joe’s. Clear gold with small head and lace. Beautiful citrus pastry bready floral aroma. Mild tangy apricot tropical fruit sweetness and wheat tang with assertive citrusy spicy hops accentuated by fine lively carbo and light body. Fucking excellent. Right up there with Gumball Head (which I now see I forgot to rate it each time I had it...fuck!)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz pour at Arvad’s in Waterbury. Pours a hazy orange with some creamy, almost pinkish white head. Nose is pleasant, sweet honey and malt, orange, lemon, grass, perfume, mild soap. Flavor has a touch of pine, but mostly orange and meyer lemon, some malt, grass. Incredibly refreshing finish. Hell of a thirst quencher.

Nice! Golden hazy pour. Citra hop citrus, pine, and straw in nose. Taste follows with a nice blend of fruit, pine, and grassy wheat tastes. Resinous and slightly sticky.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler poured this morning. Pale yellow hazy pour, nice white head. Aroma of lime, pineapple, orange and tart wheat. Flavor is essentially the same. Lemon, lime and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Very low bitterness. All the hops are up front. Really neither sweet nor dry. Very well crafted. Complex, balanced, interesting, unique. Love it.
