Growler shared by Andrew - thanks. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a thin (1/4") white head which fades to a cap and leaves some spotty lace.

N: Floral and fruity tropical and citrus (grapefruit and orange), faint peaches.

T: Juicy tropical fruits and citrus overtones. Well balanced.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation (growler). Finishes sticky and dare I say soft and fuzzy.

T: A treat and very enjoyable. One day on tap, I can hope.

Inch tall white head on a dull orange body. Head recedes to a cap and collar. Sticky step lacing.

Smell it through the bag baby! Big citrus notes noticed from a couple feet away.

Orange/slight lemon taste upfront. Big time bitterness on the tail end of each sip. Would guess around 7%abv

Medium mouthfeel, medium yet biting carbonation.

One of the better IPAs I've had in a long time. Could drink a lot of this. Thanks woosterbill!

A very cloudy weak tea colored IPA with a decent white fuzz on top (quite appropriately) and generous lacing to follow. The aroma brings intense citrus, grapefruit, orange, lemon, whatever, it’s there in spades almost to a sweet tart conclusion but it includes a little bready grain to give a touch of balance perhaps. I love it. The flavor is “grab your tongue”, Hop Stoopid bitter with the continued hop theme along with a grainy suggestion. This stuff is near mid-bodied but the tiny, brisk carbonation gives it a very lively, summer refreshment feel. It’s pretty intense and the flavor settles into a fruit syrup bite that still carries the grain goodness underneath the hop attack. Man I hope NEB sticks with this one. Sea Hag is a pleasant IPA that I’ll always like, but this moves up there with Stowaway as one of my favorite new IPA’s! Bravo Rob!
