Draft at Farmhouse in Burlington- thanks to Jeff for having this one on tap for my visit! Pours a lovely hazy orange with that classic dense, gorgeous frothy white Hill Farmstead head. Nose brings a stunning initial hit of grapefruit rind, both more bitter white zest character with sweeter pink flesh flavor, along with tangerine, clementine, apricot, honeydew, and assertive pine. The flavor continues to bring wave after wave of immensely flavorful citrus backed by subtle but beautifully bittering evergreen and balancing nectar fruit sweetness. The mouthfeel is just full enough, but beautifully drinkable with a lasting bitterness that almost seems to provide a 5 second respite causing the facade of a smooth finish, then attacking you again for that lingering hop bite. An absolutely stunning lower alcohol IPA; could be my favorite.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - NOV 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Poured a very hazy golden with an off white head. Aroma of some bitter orange, pine, a touch of grass. Flavor follows, with a lot of bitter pine, some light citrus rind, and leading to a toffee biscuity yeasty finish. Similar to Edward in flavor profile with a touch more citrus to the palate that, in my estimation, makes it a little better. Still did not wow me like I hoped but certainly palatable enough.

Pours a bright, slightly hazy orange with white head. A floral hop, tropical fruit, and pine aroma. A smooth beer with citrus, floral, fruits, spices and pine flavors. A light lingering bitter hoo aftertaste.

aleigator (904) - GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Pours a hazed orange-yellow color with a huge, fluffy white head. Smells of dried orange peel, passionfruit, bright lemon pulp and lots of wet grass. This gets pleasantly accompanied by some water melon and wet hay, complimented by sugared bread crust. Produces a refreshing crispness, including a whiff of sweet ice bonbon atop of hand made lemonade - very nice on the nose. Has a fantastic smooth mouthfeel, incredibly soft on the palate with a light body, producing a nice hop bite during the finish. Tastes of lemon, white bread dough and a hop profile which turns frutier within each second. The hops bring kiwi, wet grass more lime and a mellow, sweet maltiness to the palate. The sweetness gets washed away during the finish by a late herbal dryness which inherits a powerful, slowly evolving lemon dryness, which stays on the tongue surprisingly long. Very nice, supersmooth, light and crisp with a hoppy fruit profile, pleasantly accentuated by the malts, while turning utmost dry in the end. Very eventful and perfectly crafted, another impressive, thoughtfully balanced beer from this brewery, with a nice herbal addition.

joeneugs (6231) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 6, 2016
On draft at Fools Gold. It pours a hazy orange color with a creamy off white head. The aroma is bright and fresh with lime and citrusy grapefruit. A little honey. The flavor has more of the citrusy lime and grapefruit with flowers. Fresh and bright with a citrus zest bitterness in the finish. Very light cookie, bread and honey-like maltiness is supportive of the hops. Really great.

Tap. Cloudy bright lemon orange. Circus, grapefruity hops, melon, and slight berry aromas. Flavor is same, but grassier and dryer. Medium soft body. Killer.

DiarmaidBHK (4442) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Draft at armsby abbey. Pours pineapple yellow with a thin white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing. Has some solid floral hops. Lots of flowers on the tongue. Has some residual bitterness on the finish which I quite like. It's a nice beer but I like the other beers I've had from them more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
