Growler enjoyed over the weekend in Bar Harbor while camping. Reviewed from notes taken.
A- Appropriately poured from the Oxbow growler into the Oxbow snifter/tulip glass. Golden light orange body with some natural haziness to it. Creamy white head a few fingers high with decent retention. Lots of lace clouds around the glass.
S- Super juicy hops. A lot of fruit feel with both citrus and tropical varieties coming to mind. Reminds me of melons, mango, peach, passion fruit and orange zest. A ton of hop aroma and extremely inviting.
T- Like the aroma, hop flavors are big but maybe just a bit less dominant here. Juicy tropical fruits, citrus zest, spicy and grassy flavors come to mind; some could be from both the hops and yeast strain. The farmhouse yeast makes an appearance here that the hops mostly masked in the aroma. Some light fresh cracked grain and sweetness from the malts.
MF- Light bodied but a nice silky, foamy texture with any agitation. Moderately high carbonation and it finishes with a medium bitterness.
One thing I enjoy about this beer is the use of hops to get an amazing aroma and flavor from them, almost at an IPA level. I also enjoy how the hops seem to blend in with the yeast and everything comes together into one great taste. Super drinkable and flavorful, a new favorite.

Hazy and golden yellow with a little head. Aroma is a lot a melons and a wonderful citrus bouquet with a touch of must as it warms up.
Taste is very crisp and malty light initially followed by a earthy hop bitterness that blends well with the corny type maltness. A well balanced beer packed full of flavor that I find it hard to nail down the specific flavors but you know there is a slight tart edge and a touch of phenols. Very drinkable
