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.

Poured a golden body with large foamy head and lace patches everywhere.
Aroma is grainy with good citric hop presence and touch of sweetness.
Smooth body that is light-drinking, this beer has mostly a bitter citric hop taste as well as some sweetness from pils malt and light fruit sweetness (straddles between tropical and grape).
Well balanced and enjoyable beer that keeps the ABV well-hidden.
