Had this many many times, but somehow no previous review.
12oz, bottled on 09.20.17
Deep golden hued body capped with a frothy ivory head. Citrusy nose with earthy piney hops and a bit of light caramel and pale malt. Big and bold grapefruit zest, plenty of pine resin, light caramel and grain. Medium sticky mouthfeel with pleasant carbonation. A perennial pick up for me. It's always a great wet hop harvest IPA.

I had a 12oz pour of this on 31OCT17 at The Nashua Garden. Cost was $4.00 during happy hour.

The small snifter was filled with a clear, medium-golden colored brew, which had minimal carbo. Head was sparse and scant, mostly some fine, white, rim-job foam, with light lacing. Had a citrusy nose with some sweetness, though mild. No probs for the feel; fairly smooth and medium bodied.

Taste had some sweetness and biscuit malts. There was a little melon and mild apricot. It was resiny, rindy and a touch piney, with grapefruit and pineapple rounding things out. Not spectacular, but still solid! Zum Wohl!!

Pours a medium gold with good foam and lacing. Nose is full of fresh hops, citrus, floral, and some honey. The taste is very sweet hops interlaced with some citrus and resin notes. This is a clean feeling beer with mild bitterness and no dryness. Very nice fall beer, refreshing and clean.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear orange golden with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh hops, floral, resinous piney, sweet malt. The taste is pixie stix, sweet malt, medium dry finish. Not bad, a tad on the sweet side for me.
