Very nice little beer. Nice hop profile and aroma. Brewery says that it drinks like a baby Haze, and it does a bit... which makes me want Haze and not Dirty Water. But @ 3.9% ABV, if they ever can it and start selling it in 12, 18 or 24 packs, I would glady crush these all day while doing yard work or at a family BBQ.

750ml bottle filled 7 days ago at Tree House. Kept in the back of the fridge since.

A- Flip top bottle pours to a teku glass with a hazy golden body and a white cap. The head is fairly thick and frothy falling eventually to a foamy ring. Large sheets of lace at the top with

S- Hop forward with fruity and citrus notes. Reminiscent of oranges, grapefruits and apricots. Not juicy but fresh, clean hops nonetheless with minimal intervention from yeast or grains.

T- Starts off with a hop profile up front pretty much spot on with the nose. Fresh citrus fruits without any harsh bitterness like grapefruit, tangerine, mango stone fruit and clementine as well as floral and herbal hints. Finishes with light cracked grains and some bready malt hints.

MF- Light bodied overall with a very high end carbonation which suits the body and texture very well. Consistency is slightly creamy and foamy. Finishes with a light bitterness.

3.9% and packed full of flavor. This is not a pungent hop bomb (plenty of hop flavor though) by any means but to me the balance provided by the grains is one of the best aspects of the brew. Seems to get better with every sip.

Picked up a growler of this at the brewery three days ago, poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice hazy dark straw/light gold hue with a two finger fluffy white head that fades to leave some sticky side lacing and a nice creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of bold grapefruit peel, loads of it infact, with a little bit of orange zest. Very light on the malts. Very aromatic, definitely like Haze Jr!

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice grapefruit notes and light orange. Much more crackery malts, much more indeed. Clearly a blonde ale with big grains/cracker notes. The grapefruit is more citrus, not really bitter at all. Very clean finish, though it leaves me wanting more of a hop punch.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, not really thin. Finish is not really bitter, which is fine.

O - Overall, this is a tasty blonde ale. The hops in the nose are really, really nice along with the appearance. Wish the hops were a bit more pungent on the pallet, but this beer isn't really supposed to be THAT beer. They've definitely tweaked the recipe some since it first came out in Brimfield all those years ago, and I do like it more.
