Poured into a Tired Hands stemmed glass. Half finger worth of soapy peach colored head on top of a hazy burnt yellow body. Head recedes to a thick coating of soapy white bubbles. Good lacing throughout.

Smell is wonderful and complex as hell. Notes of kiwi, strawberry (strawberry shortcake), bruised mango, and cat pee. Very hoppy aroma, with some subtle yet pleasant aromas. A harsher, alcoholic aroma takes over a bit in the back. Tropical fruits abound in this beer!

Taste is awesome! Very well balanced, with a fine amount of sweet malts in the forefront (honey and freshly baked bread come to mind) and a balancing hoppiness from the Amarillo and Galaxy hops. Honeydew melon, kumquats and other exotic fruits have some presence here.

Carbonation is spot on and works well with this full-bodied beer.

This is a fantastic DIPA! Seriously one of the best! It needs better head retention, but aside from that, it would be hard to beat! Just a great balance, great aroma, juicy and well rounded beer. I consider myself lucky to have been able to drink a growler of this!

Phenomenal beer, truly one of the greats. I'm always on the lookout for new and great IPAs and this is definitely a brewery to watch for hoppy beers. Definitely a repeat. A growler from yourefragile, thanks! Growler is 4 days old.

Beer served in a HIll Farmstead stemmed glass. Beer is amber and clear (mostly) with a nice white head, decent retention, nice lacing, moderate to low carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is fruity, nice, bitter, resinous, great.

Beer is medium in body, a little malty on the front but hops win HOPS WIN! Great bitterness, great fruity hop flavor, resin coats the mouth. A great IPA and I would have this again, especially from the source.

A 16OZ glass at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore, I am intrigued by the name.

WEEDEATER looks like a golden IPA, a gold color, light yellow shades on the sides, light looking, a nice off white head up top leaving some patterns on the glass. This one smells straight up double. The malt is large the hops beneath it. Floral scents with some tropic fruit and bubblegum coming through. Drinking this, on first sips, this reminds me of all of the Port anniversary DIPA beers, the malt addition is spot on with that with big biscuit. Tropic fruit, very faint pine. Sweet, hoppy, floral. The feel is medium with a pleasant carb going that's not too bitey. A wholelot of alcohol in this, better to sip and savor. A fine DIPA. Think Port Anniverasry DIPA

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dan!

First stein pours with a 1/9" off-white head over the slightly cloudy golden brew. Head skims promptly, with sticky lace. Aroma is tangerine citrus.

Taste starts moderately sweet, oranges in the middle quickly give way to piney bitterness through the close. Fruity bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. I have a feeling this brew could easily sneak up on me.
