3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the nanobrewery (two-barrel brewhouse) near Marengo, Ohio. Pours a hazy golden pale colored IPA with a decent sized and rocky off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of hard fruits, floral hops, a hint of pine and a touch of pear. Taste is medium to full bodied, nicely carbonated with flavors of floral and some English dry hops, a touch of citrus zest and golden grain malt. Finish starts off with a floral hop aftertaste and then escalates to a lingering mild bitterness the slowly disappears. Excellent inaugurational beer and look forward to their next release.

16 oz. can purchased at 7 Eleven, Kittery. No canning date but it has not sat around at all. Mildly cloudy bright yellow, thin lasting white head, weak head retention. Aroma is tropical fruits (pineapple, guava fruit). Mild perfume hints. bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Flavor is mild guava, citrus, and vanilla in the finish. Like vanilla cake? The bitterness is almost floral. The texture has some chewy yeast. Overall the entire feel of the beer is odd. Not odd in a bad way, just strange. Not sure how cohesive it is.
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is nice mix of tropical fruit, soft sweet malts and some bright grapefruit. Palate follows with softness and nice approachability. Balanced sweetness and light bitterness throughout. Layers of tropical fruit, citrus a bit of dank grass and resin lingers. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden, with white head. Fruity hop, citrus, slight pine, juicy aromas. Citrus, juicy, fruity, hoppy flavors. drsordr (2868) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Draft to taster at source pour clear light gold with thin white head. Nose big tropical juicy fruit hop, mango and kiwi, sweet malt. Taste only light bitter up front, sweet hop flavors, but lighter than the nose. Biscuit malt late.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma has mango, pineapple, oranges, light spice, and a bit of grass. Very sweet. Flavor is like candy. Plenty of fruit. Kinda fun but crazy sweet. ebone1988 (2125) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Can shared with Chris and Doug for the Lions share. Aroma is citrusy, pine, tropical fruit, robust. Appearance is golden, hazy, white head. Taste is citrus, pine, tropical fruit, malt, bitter, good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, pine citrus aftertaste. Overall, it’s good. phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2016
16 oz. can via local trade. This one pours a hazier gold color, kind of like pineapple juice, with a finger of soft white head that settles into a thick ring and thinner film, as well as some trailing lace. After a version of Everybody Wants Some and Tickling the Ivories, I thought they were going clear. But nope, back to the haze. It has notes of ripe - almost too ripe - stone fruit, pineapple, pine, florals, muddled citrus, and some sneaky late malt sweetness, borderline creamy in flavor and texture. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fruity, bitter, sweet mouthfeel. Kind of dry on the finish. Good IPA, but Bulgin’ Musk works better on every level.

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head of foam. In the aroma I get orange juice and vanilla beans. Mild bitterness. Juicy. Medium body and medium carbonation. Oaklandbeerguy (36) - California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
16oz can. Pours a hazy golden color. Big head that settles quick. Light mango, peach, pineapple on the nose. Tastes are very similar. Little lemon peel also. Better as it warms up a little. Smooths out all around.
