Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy, herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has a slightly better hop presence in the flavor in my opinion.

Appearance: The amber liquid arrives with an impressive head that leaves gobs of sticky lacing behind

Smell: Very citrusy, with ruby red grapefruit tones

Taste: A hint of caramel, up front, and then there is an enormous wallop of ruby red grapefruit; floral and citrus flavor in abundance

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a bit creamy

Overall: This IPA is the real deal - too bad the brewery doesn't bottle it

Oh yeah! Just filled at the brewery about 2 hours ago... it's fantastic, can't wait to down this growler!

Gently pouring from the growler that's filled all the way to the tippety top, forms a film of liquid gold streaming between the sides of the glass and the main spout of liquid, when it finishes pouring a big frothy 1.5 finger head is left in the aftermath (excuse my pun), that sticks around for a while and leaves lots of soapy lacing like head exploded in the glass. The beer itself is semi hazy, with a nice golden light streaming through the reddish orange peach honey colored beer.

Nose is phenomenal! the bursting bright bodacious tropical fruits fill my nostrils and dance in the receptors, tangerine, light citrusy clementine, a bit of grapefruit and a little passion fruit all waft out in a big tropical fruit blend. A light wave of resin and floral hops come out next with just a bit of a malty base to prop it up. The more I nose, the more the huge wafts of pure grapefruit come out, it's like breaking the little juice packets on a fresh grapefruit. After a while I could practically confuse this for grapefruit juice.

My taste buds await their fate as they prepare for the awesomeness coming out of the glass. First wave of the beer actually brings a light sweet malty base that paves the way for the hops following quickly after. It doesn't take long for fresh grapefruit to rush in. Citrus and tropical fruit just entwine their juiciness with each cell of my tongue and saturate the deliciousness part of my tongue. Between waves of fresh squeezed grapefruit comes light tangerine, passion fruit, papaya, mango, tropical fruit you name it! Hint of a fresh hop resin and pure Citra awesomeness, maybe a little Simcoe, Summit, or Galaxy... it has those delicious profiles. Light bitter rind flavor coming from the mountain of grapefuit, some bitterness but not very bitter initially. I could drink gallons of this without feeling it. Finish is drier but juicy, again tons of grapefruit juice, fresh squeezed just lingering for a long time, like it doesn't want to part with my tongue and my taste buds sure don't want to part with it! A light bitter rind flavor lingering with more tropical fruit flavors, and a little mango and hint resin.

Mouth is med bodied, soft and fluffy at the same time with nice carb, and just a hint of hop oil resin.

Overall, heeelll yeah! Near perfect aroma, super delicious, very drinkable, etc. It's like a lesser boozy, lesser bitter, and lesser resinous version of most of the big Citra Hill farmstead beers, especially SS4 coming to mind, except I only have to drive a few minutes rather than few hours to get it! I can't wait until they expand and I can get a lot more of this growler of pure delicious zen!

Growler shared by drewone - Thanks.

A: Pours a hazy light-orange with an initial quarter-inch thick white head which fades to the rim leaving splotchy lace. (Possibly being biased here with the score due to a growler pour - but that is how it is).

N: Really nice tangerine, orange, and grapefruit present inside the zest. Tropical fruits also in the mix (passion). Floral and fruity. Really nice.

T: Balanced malts and hops. An enjoyable soapy-like quality with the up-front citrus.

M: Moderate body and barely medium carbonation (growler, yes). Not overly bitter or dry finish.

O: Nice with the best being the aroma. Interesting how a lot of east coasters seem to score this high. Not a west coaster style, but still a treat.

750ml growler from Reagan1984. Served in a taster pint and shared with friends.

A - White foam settles to a near-complete cap, thick collar, and leaves behind plenty of splotchy lacework. Hazed orange body.

S - Reminds me a lot of Zombie Dust actually, but with a tad more sugary malt sweetness. Massive citrus, light dankness and onion in the periphery.

T - The taste is quite similar, with loads of citrus, light tropical melon and mango, and some balancing brown sugar malts. Very low bitterness, as one would expect from a Citra-heavy brew.

M - Soft, growler-style carbonation. Medium body, no alcohol presence, and a dry, crisp finish.

D - A great brew that is supremely drinkable. A tiny bit sweeter than I prefer, but on the whole pretty excellent stuff. Would happily drink this again any time. The growler emptied in record time and I may have to ask Greg for a full 64oz next time he heads to Tree House.

Big thanks to Deuane for cracking this growler open at Campground Brewdown.

A - Pours hazy peach orange with a beautiful one and a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a thin white film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of freshly zested tropical fruit, a whole field worth of fresh cut grass, sticky pine resin and some mild caramel sweetness. The hops are so strong but not totally over the top.

T - Starts off much more balanced than the nose. The piney, grassy, tropical fruit hop punch is there in spades but the slightly sweet caramel malt is there to hold it in check for the most part. The finish is nearly identical but the bitterness does eventually win out, leaving the palate quite dry.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel with plenty of dryness backing it up. The hops meld amazingly well with the base grain.

O - One of the better IPA's I have had in recent memory. The hops are intense and yet they don't destroy the palate. Now that I have friends in the area I am really looking forward to visiting them in the near future to try all these beers on-tap.
