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.

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

Growler from FiftyFifty Brewpub. Pours clear red with slight amber hue. Two finger off-white head. Aroma of pine with some bubble gum. Flavor is slightly spicey with dry, bitter finish. Light in the mouth with moderate carbonation. An easy drinking IPA.
