12 oz. bottle.

Great label art! "Brew unto other as you would have them brew unto you." Pours a partially cloudy, glowing deep golden. Finger of dense, whipped, eggshell white head. Good lacing. Somewhat of a subdued nose, with notes of fresh hops (piney, resinous) and cookie dough malt.

Lightly toasted grainy malt up front. Bready, with a hint of fruit. Earthy, resinous hops gradually move in and build up a little momentum. Slightly metallic and citrusy near the finish. Earthy, herbal bitterness dominates the finish. Some lingering biscuit malt. Moderate body with a creamy feel. A nice, sessionable beer. Keep up the special releases!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Very well done English IPA. Aroma was some hops, but also dishrag aroma. Very light yellow, offset by lots of lace. Some citrus in taste, very decent bitterness that's just spot on, and I guess would be subtle to the hophead. Average mouthfeel.

I picked up this growler on a recent trip to the brewery. The brewery describes this beer as an organic English style IPA. Pours a light golden color with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of malted barley and grains. The taste is fairly light and clean with with muted citrus flavors that are toned down compared to an American IPA. The mouthfeel has medium to high carbonation and finishes smooth. Drinkability is extremely high. I will have no problem finishing the growler. This is my first experience with organic beers. Organic is not something I would be willing to pay extra for but this one is right on the mark.
