Thank you Slatetank for sharing the spoils of your recent VT trip with me. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clouded pale yellow color with a firm white topping that persists. The brew plays the part well visually as expected.

The aroma contains notes of citrus with grass clippings, pine and herbal components. Some solvent alcohol and sulfur emerges with a swirl. This has a very fresh yet generic sort of hop bite that smells like pellet hops crushed up in my hands.

The taste is bitey with grassy bitterness blending to pulp/zest/pith of orange. Some solvent alcohol pokes through the back end breaking things up. The taste of this is very familiar, though ive never had this offering before.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A good brew thats fresh and enjoyable with a creeping amount of alcohol inclusion. I know, I know - cast your stones at me for not being a believer in the golden nectar that flows from the farmstead on the hill. From what ive had, their hoppy offerings just taste nearly indifferent from one another (in my opinion.)

Enjoyed at HF 4th Anniversary Party

A-Hazy gold and yellow with a nice white foam.

S-More citrus than grapefruit, but the fruits were certainly were apparent.

T-Amazing taste, fruits are still present but the hops are wonderfully balanced.

M-Such a drinkable beer, the s&s are always some of my favorites and this was perhaps the most drinkable.

O-This was one of my favorites, glad I choose Blackback to post-up in during the beermageddon in waterbury so I could try this!

Good stuff.

Pours a nice yellow beer. Nice head, foamy. Nice hoppy smell. Taste pretty good, very bitter and very fresh. A straightforward Double IPA. Very nice body, and nice thickness. Not very memorable, but a really nice beer. Wouldn't mind having more.
