Picked this up at Julio's. Bottled on 06/02/14 so yah, super fresh!
A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice crystal clear light golden hue with a good thumb thickness white head that faded to leave sticky side lacing and a nice creamy blanket. Very, very solid.
S - Aromas of very light tropical notes, faint earthiness, faint lager notes. The Calypso hops are really, really nice with a good pear like aroma. Just wish there was more POW as the aromas are all a bit on the faint side.
T - Taste is more of the fleeting tropical notes with light grapefruit, soft grassy notes too and some resinous bitterness. There is more of a melon/pear like flavour poking through at the end that is very pleasant. Alcohol is basically nonexistent. That grassy pear really lingers on the finish that is nice.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, bright, crisp. Alcohol hidden.
O - Overall, a very tasty APL here. Like what the Calypso hops brought to the table with that underlining melon/pear. Well done.

Growler bought at Nathaniel Square Corner Store. The 3rd batch of this, I believe- Calyptra, hopped with Calpso and Citra hops.
Pours a vigorous golden yellow, with beautiful visible carbonation, and a 2 inch head. Lots of lacing.
Smelled this out of the growler and proclaimed "holy shit." This really is one of the best smelling hoppy beers I've ever had- smells like candied pineapple, orange, and some grass.
The taste is pretty good, but doesn't quite match up. Slighty catty and grassy, with some orange and pineapple. Medium bitterness lingers on the palate.
Light bodied, lots of carbonation, very drinkable and crushable.
A great hoppy lager, this one smells amazing and tastes pretty good. I poured 3 glasses from the growler, it did get better the more I drank it.
