On tap at the Reservoir in Waterbury, VT.

Pours a hazy, almost opaque orange/yellow, looks almost creamy, with a one inch head, and a lot of lacing. Looks delicious.

Smells insanely fruity and hoppy, just could keep my nose in this one for a while. As tropical smelling as any hoppy ale/lager I've ever had.

The taste is similar. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, and peach abound, just really creamy and juicy at the same time, with a small amount of lingering bitterness, that brings to mind orange or grapefruit peel, rather than pine. I could chug this stuff.

This one has a fairly light body- but it's not thin at all- creamy and hoppy deliciousness awaits. The body is light, though, so it goes down quite easily. There's no lingering bitterness.

An absolutely delicious hoppy concoction, a bit out of the typical wheelhouse of The Bruery it seems. This shows they can make a hoppy beer with the best of them.
