4.18/5 rDev +12.1%
a. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle purchased at Bocktown. Clear orange with a good retaining, soapy, white head. Spotty lacing here and there.
s. Bready malts dominate with some slight skunk/pungent odor from the mixture of hops.
t. A very well balanced Ipa. The malts provide a very solid backbone to the home grown fresh picked hops. Very nice puckering hop juice that is earthy with a subtle pine flavor. Light citrus. A hint of clean alcohol but it is very subdued. The finish highlights the lingering earthy hop bitters. All in all it is very nice.
m. Medium bodied with a good deal of flavor. Smooth yet a bit slick for an IPA.
d. Curious what a case would go for, because this stuff is worth a case purchase and then some.

Brewed with fresh "wet" hops. Pours into my "shaker" glass a rich golden yellow color with about a finger of off-white foam. Aroma is sweet and grassy with citrus notes. Tastes of bitter citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit (just the pith). Somewhat vegetal followed by a slight maltiness. The bitterness carries through in the aftertaste along with a slight alcohol warming. Mouth is crisp and dry with medium carbonation. I thought this was easy to drink and quite refreshing. I'm already looking forward to next years batch when these new plants will be more mature. Worth a try if you can find it. For now at least, it's only available on draft and bottles in the PA market.
