COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep in the labs at TG, through the vaulted door, down the steps, and past the room labeled "Beware the Leopard" lies an experiment forgotten. For over a year it remained dormant, calculating the precise moment of return to unleash the ultimate blend of hops. Finally, escape! This unbridled force descends upon the unsuspecting Masses. Can you handle it?

Bottle. Gently hazed marigold hue with a soap-bubbled white cap. Aroma is a little catty, but also sports white grape and lemon peel. The flavor sheds the funkier notes, replacing them with soft white fruits -- grape, peach, apricot. The subtle flavor culminates in a burst of bitter citrus. Medium-bodied; moderate carbonation. An enjoyable, delicate little IPA.

22 oz bottle received via trade, thanks Chad! Orange and light hazy appearance with a lacy beige head that lingers. Aroma of toasted grain, bitter hops, citrus fruits, floral notes and light herbal characteristics. Similar flavor, adding medium hop bitterness, some hop resin and a lingering hop finish. Average body with a crisp, light dry feel. Pretty easy drinking overall, solid IPA.

Oon tap at the brewpub. Big alpha hops. Still not very palate erasing. Good drinkability.

Bottle with thanks to ReeceG! Pours hazy amber orange, medium beige head that dissipates leaving good lacing. Aroma is definitely melony, pine, some herbal thing and a bit of green tea. Flavor is light bitter and light plus sweet, lots of herbal and tea notes for me, backed by melons. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.
