750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead taster.
A~ glowing light yellow with a big fluffy head and a ton of lacing.
S~ dank grass up front followed by tons of lemon and guava. a little orange zest on the finish.
T~ pretty much follows the nose. melon like brine here and lots of tea, maybe green? or something more herbal? a little white wine like funk on the back end as well. really dank!
M~ smooth, a little dry, nice carb and very refreshing.
O~ definitely the best of the series! i love all these hop experiments but some of them just don’t work out. this on the other hand worked perfectly! crushable, herbal and dank! what more could you ask for!? Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Your typical hop forward lightly bitter, moderately thickness IPA. The hops taste grassy and lemony to me, very interesting, This is incredibly drinkable, many points for that. bellco33 (835) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Poured from a growler into a tulip: Pours hazy orange / peach with a one finger head. Aroma of melon, garlic, papaya, pineapple. Taste is more of the same but with some orange zest. Very little bitterness from the hops, no booze, lots of fruit. Medium body, really nice pale ale. jflopsu (1698) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Pours a cloudy bright gold-orange with white head. A strong mango, orange, and tropical fruit aroma. A sweet orange, mango, passion fruit, hop, and pine taste with some spices. A lingering citrus and bitter hop aftertaste. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2017
On tap at Vermont Tap House, Williston, VT.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a cloudy/hazy burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Super slim film of white foamy lace.
The aroma starts off with bitter citrus rind flowing sweetly into a pith-like fluffy juiciness. Grapefruit bitter to sweet pulpiness flows to blend nicely.
The flavor blends nicely between the bitter rind and pith to the sweet pulp, somewhat fluffy but not distracting. Some mango. Free flowing blend into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with fair enough balance between sipping to sessionable sort of bittersweet juicy contour flowing over my tongue. Nice carbonation.
Overall, extremely nice AIPA exacting the New England style juicy standards coming in nicely. One of these days, West Coast and New England will probably split, but for now, this was superb and of course I’d have again.

Pours a pale incredible hazy yellow with a white lacing. The aroma is rubber, with an almost Nelson like scent followed by grass. Quenching Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Growler from the brewery. Pours lightly hazed gold with a fluffy, white head. Nice pithy citrus aroma, with notes of pale bread and peach as well. Medium sweet flavour with over-arching juicy citrus fruits, stabilising pale bready malts, tangerine, light bitter hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation and massaging texture. Smooth finish, with further notes of peach, nectarine, tangerine. Great stuff. Hugely drinkable. drsandman (1587) - New York, USA - FEB 10, 2016
