22oz into a flute.

A: Pours a pale orange/gold with a nice white head.

S: Very citrusy, with notes of spritzy orange juice, lemon, persimmon, candi sugar, some sweet breadiness.

T: Taste brings pale malt, mild clove, a bit peachy, slight floral hop bitterness. A bit dry.

M: Light-bodied with almost frothy carbonation.

O: This is a clean, drinkable, slightly hoppy BPA. I was in the mood for something like this and it delivered. Very refreshing.

Beer #5
A- This beer pours a dense hazy orange body that is almost murky. There is a thick bubble head that last for the full beer.

S- The light but juicy citrus hops gives way to a soft white dough note that blends with some Belgian yeast character.

T- The slight tart note gives way to a mellow juicy citrus hops flavor that takes on more of an apricot flavor as it grows. There is a nice estery Belgian yeast character in the finish with some pine pungency that lingers softly without bitterness.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight scrubbing fizz that settles down after a bit.

O- There is a nice hop flavor and aroma and it would be wonderful to have more of that, but it really compliments the nice yeast character making me beg for another sip to get more of it. This is a very nice beer and sessionable especially for $5.99 a bomber.

Big thanks to SatlyMalty for introducing this brewery to me. Poured into a Dogfish signature snifter. No freshness date but, as I look at the bottom of the bottle for one, I can see a lot of sediment. Certainly bottle conditioned.

A- Pours a slightly hazy medium amber color with a full inch of off-white head that has great retention Sudsy lacing adheres to the glass in random clots.

S- Very Bretty with pungent wafts of yeast, spice, hops and tropical fruit aromas. Notes of lemon, orange, pear and pineapple. Quite effervescent with the alcohol sticking out toward the end and has a barnyard quality to it.

T- Very complex assortment of yeasty richness, subtle hops and a surprising toasty character from the malt. Modest sweetness and tartness. As the beer warms, the flavors get sort of mish-mashed and a the palate becomes a bit confused but, overall, it's a nice flavor profile.

M- Sharp and spritzy with medium-high carbonation and a bigger body than most BSPAs.

O- Very Good. I look forward to trying more of these guys' beers in the future.
