750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/2" beige head, over the totally cloudy orangey amber brew. Head is promptly down to an uneven skim, with slow-falling coating lace. Aroma is pungent oranges and tangerines. Wow.

Taste starts fruity sweet, tangerines in the middle, and then a orange zest bitter in the close. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is excellent. Nice one.

Poured from a 750mL growler I picked up at the brewery yesterday, the beer is a bright, hazed, opaque, orange-copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, sparse white head that coats the glass as you drink. Aromas of grapefruit tart and sweet, pineapple, pine and resin hops characteristics, subtle bready backbone, lemon zest and orange peel. Flavors of grapefruit and passion fruit on the forward tongue, with a mango/pineapple sweet follow, a subtle sweetbread backbone, and then a slow build of pine pitch, resiny hops profiles, and a touch of roasted characteristics. The roast helps to cut the building bitter and robust characteristics, keeping the beer very drinkable. Robust, smooth brew with a tart, drying finish. The aftertaste is a heavy blend of tropical fruits, with a grassy, piney undertone. Very robust brew, yet extremely drinkable. Great flavors, and worth the trip to the brewery!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange body. Big white head with nice lacing and a chunky collar.

Smell - Orange hops. Metallic sort of aroma. Some toasty malt.

Taste - Tastes much better. Tropical fruits. Orange. Lightly toasty cracker malt. A bit of sweetness backs it up.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Kinda creamy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This is good, but I don't get the crazy high ratings it has. I could definitely drink lots of this and would be happy drinking it all the time, but not sure it's top 50 caliber.

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.

Received as a birthday gift from BPK59 and poured into a tulip. Guess these guys only do growler fills on Saturdays. Secret recipe for this one I guess. Have a pretty good idea on the hop they used though.

A - Pours a hazy dark, kinda grayish, orange with a nice two finger head that faded somewhat quickly to leave some light side lacing and a thin cloud/halo. I chuckled when I poured it as the colour resembled that of Filmishmish. Could this be another ugly duckling type beer?

S - Aaaaand upon smelling it my initial thoughts are realized. An ugly duckling indeed!Mother of mercy...EXPLOSION of citrus rind. Orange, tangello, clementine, and tangerines. No malts, not getting any bready yeasts. Just pure, unadulterated hops. Holy fuck!

T - Uhh, yah. Where did this come from huh? So, like the nose it is an explosion of oranges and tangerines. Lots and lots of hop oils here, delicious hops. So much great orange and citrus notes. Super, super faint bubblegum buried in the citrus. Really cant convey just how well the citrus pops here.

M - Mouthfeel is very, very nice here. Solid carbonation, super sessionable with a lingering bitter citrus peel aftertaste.

O - Summit? Galaxy? I dont know, just as long as I can get this beer more often. So, this is good. This is very, very good. This is almost like a poor mans Hill Farmstead IPA, in that you don't have to drive 8 total damn hours for some. This IPA is, in my opinion, completely on par with a Shaun Hill IPA, minus the appearance. The nose, the flavours, out standing. Mind = blown

Thanks to BColton1 for being a great growler mule. Served in a standard pint. Pours a dull golden orange with a slight haze to the clarity and a dense, rocky, two-inch, cream-colored head. Head eventually settles into a consistent 1/8th inch cap with textured, semi-concentric bands of lacing revealed as the brew recedes. Nose expresses citrus, a slight piney aroma and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste consistent with nose; however, there is also an herbal character, but not overly bitter, a light toasted malt quality and a hint of spice. Great mouthfeel on this beer - medium-light in body with a creamy texture (almost reminds me of a cask offering) and a trace of oiliness. Overall - these guys are killing it. Julius is top notch - not a bitter hop bomb, but a complex and extremely drinkable American IPA.
