Drank from a 10 day old growler picked up on a trade in CT this past weekend (Thanks Brian!). This is a really great IPA. Amazing fruity/ floral aroma and wonderfully balanced, fruity, hoppy taste. I think it just loses a little (just a tad) on the finish. Very wonderful beer, but maybe not quite worth it for how hard it is to obain. I actually like Gandhi Bot a little better. (note, I have been drinking Dinner and Treehouse Haze the past few days, so my palette has some major competition). Definitely worth drinking if you can get it and maybe the best 6.2% abv IPA I have had.

2 day old growler...

Pours a cloudy, hazy, golden color. Fluffy white head leaves thick rings behind

Smell is of a Citra esque cat pee and tropical fruits.

Taste is bitter with that sharp Citra taste (I don't even know if Citra is used, but it sure seems like it to me) followed by some exoctic tropical fruits. Very dank.

It is a relatively dry IPA. It coats the mouth and leaves you wanting more!

This beer is fantastic! Been waiting to tick this for 2ish years, so glad I got the chance!

Black Friday bottle share poured from 64oz growler into Iron abbey tulip. Nose is tropical citrus fruits and soft pine. Taste is citrus followed by a heavy bitter orange pith taste. Overall really tasty IPA. Worth trading for, ehhh....

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!
