My lovely wife surprised me with a growler of this last night after going out with her best friend.

Funny thing is, the wife does not drink, but her friend got a sampler from the Brewery. After trying each one, she (the best friend) picked the one she hated, knowing I'd like it...she was correct.

Poured a hazy light orange in my Sam Adams pint glass. Decent sticky lace that coated the glass. A thin white ring stayed for the duration.

Yum, that's a fresh smelling APA. Getting equal amounts pine, citrus, and spices. Quite aromatic.

Taste follows smell completely. A very resiny pine and citrus(orange, lemon) combo on this one. Even a bit of ginger maybe? Super fresh, nice malt backbone, but the hops take center stage here. Earthy and dank, a very nice APA surprise. Moderate carbonation, goes down super easy...wish I knew what the ABV was...my guess is around 6.

I'd say this one is a hit folks. Try some if you hit NxNW. Thanks again for the growler sweetie!

Chilled fresh growler into a nonic pint.

Look- Hazy deep gold with two fingers of off-white head. Plenty of webblike lace left behind as it settles slowly, suds persist until the glass has emptied.

Smell- Strong caramel malt with a hint of floral hops and lemon rind. Very sweet.

Taste- Not particularly complex or bold, but spot-on for the execution. Starts with a wash of bitterness before moving to graham-cracker malt and finishing with citrus and pine. Aftertaste is bready and fades quickly. It's not flashy, but it's pretty darn good.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light carbonation. Refreshing feel. Exceptionally drinkable.

Overall- It's not going to wow anyone, but it's not trying to. Refreshing, drinkable, and fits the style and the food at NXNW. I'll definitely be having it again.

Picked up a growler after the Jester King first anniversary party and opened it up the next day. Poured into a wine glass.

It pours a very clear orange amber with yellow hues and a fluffy white head that slowly fades into a thin lacing and clings to the side of the glass. The nose is full of pine and a hint of citrus with a nice malty bready sweetness peeking through. Medium carbonation with medium body and a dry slightly lingering finish. The taste is slightly bitter, mostly piney with a nice malt backbone that I would consider bready. I definitely enjoyed this beer and am glad I picked up a growler.

Glad I finally made it out to NXNW and I was not disappointed.
