look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from growler 4 days old into 12oz snifter glass. Tasted with my colleague who generally shared these opinions.

A: cloudy dark golden yellow. Brighter than many IPAs. Still solid carbonation. head was decent but receeded quickly

S: Barely smells like anything at all. very disappointing. Just the faintest sweetness

T: Sweet at first then heading right into the grassland. Strong, predominant and solely flavor of grass. This helps me understand the melding of Citra and Glacier in West Coast IPAs. Cuz this is not grapefruit not pine and not very bitter. Lingering sweetness and tanginess but not particularly pleasant.

M: Average. A little bit lighter than average IPA

Overall: I am ok with this in a growler and sharing, but I am glad I don't have a case. I would not recommend this if it were in bottles, but it is a nice experiment and learning experience about Glacier hops.

Paired decently with sharp cheddar cheese.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy dark straw hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an herbal hop and light graininess.

The taste consisted of an upfront herbal and citrus hop atop a raw graininess.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a vigorous carbonation.

Overall a tasty herbal IPA.
