LSAT Freedom Trip #28. Keg at the brewery. Hey look it’s a session IPA from before there was such a thing! Hazy orange, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of floral, earthy, mild tropical hops. The taste is piney, resin, earthy hops, grainy malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Tasted on 11/12/11 from a capped bomber bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a thick off white head that slowly recedes to a thin, even layer of lace. The nose is super hoppy and dank with a hint of citrus and tropical fruit, and a nice bread malt backbone. The flavor is super dry and bitter hops with resin, citrus, and a green note, along with light bread malt. The body is light with average carbonation and a long, very dry, resin hops finish.

Bouteille de 22 oz achetée directement à la brasserie au coût de 5,95$. Arôme: Légère odeur de fruits tropicaux. Apparence: La couleur est orangée voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de mangue et d’ananas avec une pointe de poivre. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’amertume d’houblon en arrière goût. (Rating #5947)

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Doodler. Thanks, I think?!? Gigantic gusher. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Bretty, tropical fruity, grapefruit, papaya, grass, biscuit, and dough in the aroma. Taste is papaya, mango, pineapple, grass, light weed, biscuit, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Clearly infected, yet somehow it works. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty, even though it was unintended.

At Stephens House with Stephen, Aaron, and Dave. Pours golden yellow orange. Aroma is bretty, floral hops, sugar light wheat. Taste is bretty tartness, tangy orange juice.

Bottle @ Steve_0, courtesy of Doodler, thanks. Bottle shot off like a Mothefucker. Hazy golden appearance with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is bretty, juniper, and green hoppy. Chewy, twangy flavor. Some plastic and tropical fruits. This one is off but still isn’t bad.

Draught. This is a nice pale with great abv and lots of character. This one stands out as ane east coast APA.
