Thanks to Bendurgin for making the Trek and picking up this growler. Poured into a goblet. The color is hazy melon-orange. There is a nice fluffy head.

The aroma has a lot of dank citrus.

The taste has a lot of earthiness in the flavor from the hops. There is a great grassy hop flavor here as well. The finish is nice a crisp.

This is light bodied and refreshing. This is delicious as always.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Prohibition Pig weekend of 2012 Harvest Festival.

Pours a cloudy light golden amber color with a generous white head, great retention and lacing. Aroma and flavor took me by surprise as I wasn't expecting something quite so unique while being exactly what expected. Loads of tropical and juicy citrus hops, but there was a slight tropical leafiness as well that added a slight spice and earthiness that enhanced the juicy and sweet flavor (without distracting). One of my favorite HF I/A PAs.

Serving type: on-tap
