growler into tulip.
A: slightly hazed orange. deep at the center. head is on the boarder of being bright white. good retention, even better lacing.
S: a mild black pepper. sticky nose. a lot of hop oil and resins. smells like American hop pellets, in a good way. pineapple. maybe some kiwi. pleasant and inviting.
T: there is a definite cereal flavor right in the middle of the this drink. mmmm, cereal. starts more citrus than anything. hoppy, resiny, but not overly sticky or in-your-face. really appreciate the balance.
M: carb is frizzy, almost mellow. full bodied.
D: dangerously drinkable. great hop nose, great hop flavor, even better balance. glad the malt has a say in this fight. worth seeking.
Serving type: growler

Had this on-tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Shaun Hill's arrogance, I have to admit this brew is pretty legit.
A: Poured a very cloudy, golden color, with a slight, 1/2 finger head.
S: Floral in spades, with that certain "Dreadnaught-esque" candy-coated alcohol that is absolutely to die for.
T: Very Dreadnaught-esque in its IPA disposition: Fresh Orange juice, grapefruit, and some caramel and butterscotch thrown into the mix.
M: Hell, what do I know here. I guess I'll add that it's lowly carbonated, non-sugary, and damn-near perfect here.
O: This lives up to its hype, for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
