500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Slightly hazy. Small white head. Thin collar.
Smell - Citrus hops. Doughy malts. A bit of grain. Minimal brett, if at all.
Taste - Bright citrus. Orange and lemon. Sweet malts. A little bit of brett in the taste. Grainy wheat. Lingering lemony sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Easy drinking with some sweetness. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Very nice. Doesn't necessarily stand up to other Hill Farmstead IPAs, though.

Drank side by side with the Mikkeller version, provided by Bob, at his tasting.
Pours a golden, pale, hazy yellow, with a fizzy one inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.
Smells a lot less funky than the aged Mikkeller version, with more grassiness, pine, and citrus hops on the nose.
The taste is similar. Some mild funk is noted, a little bit of hay, with some juicy hop flavors- lemon and orange, with some grassiness.
Light bodied, crisp, spritzy mouthfeel. High carbonation. Very drinkable.
The better of these two versions- not sure if Grassroots version is better, or this is a beer better drank fresh.

An interesting hoppy yet smooth brew. Creamy feel, with lots of carbonation. Alcohol seems fairly present, but still goes down in refreshing way. I enjoyed this more as it warmed. Mild spiciness and very mild wheat tastes, including banana. Very enjoyable.
