On tap @ Cellarmaker. Clear golden beer with a white head. Intensely fragrant and fairly green. Big time herbal, grassy, garlicky bitterness. There’s a lot of grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, and orange. Wowe. Big peach, too. I really like certain things about this beer, particularly the nose, but the flavor is a little harsh in terms of the bitterness. Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Draft at Cellarmaker. Pours clear gold with a white foam head. The nose holds dank hops, rindy citrus, tangerine and pine. Medium sweet flavour with some pine needles, grass, melon, tangerine, dry pale bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, with more melon, tangerine, pithy grapefruit, rindy bitterness, pine. Very, very good.

Draft at Cellarmaker. Pours a clear gold with a small white ring for a head. Yeah, another dank IPA here. Light tropical fruits, citrus fruits as well, pale malts, straw, and pine. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, clean mouthfeel that belies the dank aroma a bit. Good IPA but a bit muddled while not being as compelling as the others.

[1/30/16] Growler sample at the Encomium bottle share, after RateBeer Best awards ceremony at Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel in Santa Rosa. Green gold color. "Green" oniony hops. Rather dry, moderately bitter. Medium-bodied. 6/3/7/3/13=3.2
Tap at the Brewpub. Clear golden with lace. Big lemon nose, a bit danks, leafy, oranges and some passion fruit. Ridiculously fruity flavor, can’t believe it comes just from hops. Passion fruit, orange, melon; sweet. Body is a bit thin, oily.
