Cheers again to Leighton for the New England haul.Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Trace of malt cream. Trace of hop skunk. A little sweet mango and bitterish peel. Mellow sweet tangerine. Aftertaste is medium bitter. Good stuff!
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, frothy white head. Lots of crisp pee in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, sturdy pale malts, some light grass, urine, dry orange. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, some dry needles, moderately sweet pale malts, some sticky grass. Really nice stuff. mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy opaque golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out tangy hops, lots of dankness, and kiwi-like fruit. Flavour is super fresh, with tropical fruits, especially kiwi, tangy dank hops, and light citrus. Dry, tangy and bitter. Excellent stuff.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours golden orange with medium white head. The nose is urine, fresh mint, earth, pine, salty edge and orange squash. The taste is pithy citrus, metal, resin, tangy marmalade, orange and grapefruit with a bitter citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Pretty tasty. A solid Double IPA. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle... Hazy, amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The fruity bouquet is a hoppy blend of peach, apricot and tangerine peel, flanked by a restrained measure of musky lupulin. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter, offering both fuzzy and citrus fruit tannins povided by the beer’s hop bill and schedule. Finishes bitter and tannic with a tongue-numbing characteristic. Big-time THANKS to landhoney for sharing this bottle!

651mL shared at Woodshop 8. Pours a clear, light golden. Okay foam. Nose is cedar wood, squashy. Taste is cedar, dry, long Brasil nut bitter finish. Aggressive, but clean. Powerful bitterness. Dry hopped character faded. b3shine (8873) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft to snifter at Blackback Pub (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a cloudy dark apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells and tastes of juicy hops and a moderately bittersweet backbone up front with a bit of kiwi on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied and pleasant. Enjoyable. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2013
6oz pour at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Had this side by side with Hill Farmstead Susan and Hill Farmstead Edward. Hazy light orange with some lacing white head. Fruity nose, tropical fruit, orange, meyer lemon, lime, a little grapefruit. Flavor is the same, Florida oranges, meyer lemons, limes, some tropical fruit. Dry, zesty finish. Good. Solid, but the Hill Farmstead beers blew this away. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 Bottle at Eric’s. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is perfect citrus hop. Awesome! Mouthfeel is sessionable while retaining so many juicy flavors; cheese, Nelson, fresh cut grass, pine resin and citrus fruits. Incredible. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s. Cheers to Leighton for all the Vermont goodness. The pour’s medium amber with a small white head. The aroma’s piss, lemon peel, pine needle. Salty beached driftwood. The taste is bright lemon citrus, sweet mashed banana and mango smoothie. Pissy hay and grass. Salty bitter finish. Light funkiness. Full mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Overall, a nice beer. A pretty solid exhibition of new world hops. Cool stuff.
