Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Yeasty aroma. Yeast and grapefruit aroma with light pine. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Yeast and grapefruit linger with light sweetness. dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Hazy pale gold with thin white head that subsides into a ring of foam. Nose is pineapple and other tropical fruits with bready yeast notes. Syrupy taste is too sweet. Malt components attempt to balance out, but not quite achieved. Slick feel, moderate body. BeerandBlues2 (13669) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 11, 2014

Sampled at Kramer’s Campground Brewdown 2012. Pours a hazy orange body with nice white lacing. Aroma is grassy hops and light fruit. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of grassy and floral hops, light citrus fruit, light funk, yeast and a nice malt balance. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
2012-08-18. Lightly hazy orange body with a modest beige heqad and lace. 3+ Interesting yeasty aroma, lightly grassy hops, very light funk quality. Flavour is similar, dryish pale malt, light yeast character, modest bitterness. Doesn’t scream IPA to me, but it is enjoyable. Average plus bodied palate.

Pouring at BCTC. Talked to the brewer who made it, was made at either the Buffalo NY location, or the new one opening in Syracuse NY. I think they may have made this solely for BCTC, but it was solid enough that I’m hoping it shows up on tap at some of their locations. Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin white head. Musk, light styrofoam hops. Smooth and creamy, picks up some faint cocoa hints. Musk, malt, toast. Soft musk, light bitterness, gentle grapefruit, musk and toast. Easy, tasty, clean.
