Got the growler from the brewery in Truckee, CA during my weekend of skiing. Pours a cloudy orange, which is good because it reminds me of fresh-squeezed apple cider. Head is foamy and dissolves soon to a bed of lace. This is a classic IPA: hoppy in aroma and in taste! You can taste the cascades here, and it's got a wonderful fresh floral taste. Little if any malt balance. All about hops, baby.
Serving type: growler

This poured the color of a malty amber with some light foaming. I found an aroma of toffee and pineapples to dominate. It’s intensely bitter with a lingering sweetness. The malt balances out the candied pineapple, caramel and toffee notes from the hops.

Picked up at the brewery two nights ago, growler to a pint glass
Pours a very hazy gold with almost no transparency. Vibrant amber in the middle thinning out to a more tangerine on the sides and bottom of the glass. Little carbonation, alright lacing- not bad but incredibly thick on the eyes
Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, lots of pine, and a sweet but balanced malt. Not super pungent, but come together well, even if you have to stick your nose down pretty far in it.
Taste of strong upfront hops, grapefruit, pine, and a wide range of citrus. A sweet malt backs it all up which, like the nose, is able to keep a fine balance. All comes together well, solid tribute to the style
Mouth is consistent with the rest of the beer, medium body with a high bitterness. Nice sticky and dry finish, alcohol very well concealed. Super drinkable, killing a 64oz growler of this for memorial day will be no problem
Overall this stuff is really good, strong hop profile balanced well with a subtle yet rigid malt backbone. Good to know fiftyfifty is good for more than just Eclipse, can't wait to drive back to drink there
