4.35/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from a 750 ml bottle "growler" purchased at Hill Farmsted in VT. Body is hazy yellow with a white head. Good lace.

S: Earthy, leafy, garlicky hops dominate. Touch of lemon too.

T: Juicy hops that bring to mind tropical fruit and plenty of apricot. Nice lemony bitterness as well.

M: Medium heft, soft carbonation.

O: Really good stuff. I liked Abner a little better, but this was very good.

Serving type: growler

Pour is hazed yellow amber with lots of tight white head. Nose is hoppy peach, not super bright but hops lead in nose. Taste is a bit muddled. Stronger hop presence, peach and tropical fruit with a light bitterness. Body is light with a strong carb and clean finish.

Serving type: on-tap

4.66/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A - Opaque cloudy bright orange colour, yellow towards the edges. A thin layer of cream coloured head formed and left some nice lacing behind.

S - Tropical fruit and some dank/musky notes. Passion fruit, guava, mango, peach and a hint of caramel sweetness.

T - Sharp bitterness up front with a huge tropical fruit bouquet consisting of mango, passion fruit, pineapple and guava. A caramel sweetness provided just enough balance.

M - Medium body. Dry. Sticky and oily. Light carbonation.

Serving type: growler
