COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

Pours with a nice white head, caramel in color. The aroma is powerful, citrus, light floral. Very nice! Nice medium body ale with a sweet caramel malt, well balanced citrus flavor and smooth finish. Very well done.

EBD 3/7/16. Clear medium amber (dark copper) pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Delicious world class nose of hops over a light biscuit with a touch of caramel. Citrus, pine, tropical - you name it, its there. Light body with a smooth texture plus some oily hop resin. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a wave of blended hop flavor that, like the nose, runs the full hop spectrum. Bitterness is quite tame and arrives in the middle with a balancing biscuit that is perfectly balanced - not sweet, but there. As the finish approaches, light caramel notes appear as does just a touch of herbal pepper. The finish provides the strongest citric element as a subtle rind bitterness lingers.

Bottle. Clear Amber with a big fluffy head. A crisp hoppy punch balanced with a strong malt base. Light caramel, tea, spice, citrus. Very good, fresh, full flavor but, very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle-tulip. Deep orange with moderate offwhite head. A: dank floral and citrus hops, caramel malt. T: musk, resin, pine hops, caramel malt. Decent, though a little too much sock sweat here.

Clean, fresh hop nose...fantastic. Hazy light amber, slight head. Mildly bitter, mixed with floral, mild bitter finish. Very easy drinking. Nice amount of carbonation.

Pours a darker orangish golden color with off-white head. Grass, pine, floral notes and some light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes very flowery, floral notes mainly, some grass too.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 12oz bottle. Not much aroma, which is pretty odd given the style of beer. Mouthfeel is sticky-juicy, with flavors of grapefruit, sweet orange and caramel. Above average.

four pack from Wegmans. $10, so not cheap. Pours murky brown. Lots of frothy sticky head. Sticky aroma with lots o dirt. Mouthfeel is moderate with some stickyness. Taste is dirty, but in a good hop way. Not dank, but dirty. Mild pine, grass, dough, soy and wood. Last year it took me at least two of these to really appreciate it. This year was the same. Very good use of fresh hops. you really dont get that from most harvest beers Ive tried ( i havent tried a ton however). That being said, since it takes me a few to really appreciate the flavor, Im knocking it down a couple notches. But worth a four pack purchase.

355ml bottle. Amber pour, ecru head that sticks, nice lacing. Lemon pepper aroma, herbs and grass, bit of citrus zest, baked bread. Flavor is bitter, herbs, some acidity. Not terrible.
