Poured a cloudy yellow. Smells and tastes of lime with a hit of hops blended in right after. This is right behind Jai Alai in my IPA books. Excellent beer.

The beer comes in a completely hazy golden color.

The aroma smells like pure lemon peel, with some lemon juice on top. Huge citrus peel and grapefruit. A touch of sugary sweetness. Guava, passionfruit, pineapple.

The flavor hits up front of grass and leafy hop quality. It literally sticks onto one's teeth. Then onto passionfruit, guava, peach, mango. Then onto herbacous and grassy green drying, with a touch of lingering bitterness.

The closest thing to Hill Farmstead or Tree House outside of New England and Toppling Goliath. An auspicious introduction into the top tier world class hoppy beers out there.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Crowler filled 2-9-15. Thanks a bunch, colt3ninja!

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a 1/2 inch beige head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of surface foam. resilient lacing trickles dlowly down the glass.

S- Pungent, juicy hop aroma reminds me of a homebrewed IPA. Resinous notes of pineapple, mango and orange. Also a bit grassy plus I get this hint of green pepper or poblano pepper that's surprising but nice.

T- Smooth citrus hop flavor that's moderately bitter but doesn't linger long. Malt is there just enough to provide some support. Ah and, now that I'm looking for it, there's that same green pepper element in the flavor that I found in the aroma.

M- Tangy, bright and crisp with medium carbonation and a body that leans toward the lighter side.

O- Great stuff. A very unique approach to a single IPA. Very drinkable and refreshing with a dynamite aroma. For the record, I love green peppers.

Sampled from a fresh 32 oz crowler - thanks Travis. Pours a hazy yet bright apricot color with a huge fluffy white head. Nose has hints of pineapple, mango and lemon. Citrus flavors come through but are quickly followed by nicely balanced hop notes. Very nicely balanced and highly enjoyable IPA. Crisp clean finish.

Fresh Crowler from the brewery. Pours murky bright yellow with a big creamy fluffy white head that sticks around a whole and leave a lt of lacing. Aroma of pineapple, some pine, sweet malts, lots of tropical fruits but of citrus. Flavor follows the nose closely with big citrus pineapple flavors, pleasantly light bitter, juicy. Slightly dry body after the big juicy tropical fruit, medium carbonation, creamy. Wish these guys were closer as this is easily the best IPA I've had in Florida.
