First had: on tap at TH
Took a growler home also (and drank the whole thing myself).

A farmhouse IPA.

Hazy, pale yellow pour with a half inch or so of foamy white head that retained well and left soapy lacing on the glass. Great aroma, peach and citrus zest, Simcoe and Centennial working together like champs as always. The IPA hoppiness was the dominant factor in the taste, nice flavors of citrus and peach echoing the aroma, lesser notes of pine and musty grass, the latter of which lingered into the aftertaste. Mild bitterness, soft carbonation, dry, light-medium mouthfeel, smooth, easy drinkability.

Appearance: 1'' of white-creamy colored head that lasted a while. Beer is golden in color, and quite hazy. Lacing was sparse.

Smell: Smell is of oranges, dough, and leaves.

Taste: Taste is like a bitter, piney Saison. Earth! A bit of citrus, as well.

Mouthfeel: Body is light, with average carbonation and a thin, oily texture. Finish is bitter, dry, and tart.

Overall: The bitterness combined with the funky Saison yeasts was a bit much for me. Glad I was able to try it!

Enjoyed chilled in a teku from a growler shared by tenderbranson69, thanks Tim.

The color is very hazy golden with thick white cap that settles to a ring of fine beads with ringlets of lace left clinging. The smell is very phenolic almost band-aid with herbal hop cent and some light citrus in the background. The feel is very dry and highly carbonated with some bretty medicinal influence with a mild sweetness and gentle hop oily aspect with mild alcohol in the finish.

The taste is very good with a combination of herbal hops and slight citrus flavors combined with a bretty horseblanket medicinal quality and light malt which is cracker-like in the dry flavor with spicy notes of the hops intertwined with the funk. The flavor is vibrant and has a light fruit tinge with some tropical aspects and light warming of alcohol in the back end. This is very much a farmhouse ale with some medicinal phenols coming through adding an almost band-aid note but the hops provide plenty of acidity and flavor with a mild grapefruit essence. This is very drinkable and I recommend it to anyone who likes the combination of brett and hops, I can see how the beer is labeled as an American IPA since the hops tend to dominate mid palate on.
