2-8-16 - On tap at TRIA in Philly. Served in their classic "T" stemmed tulip. Cloudy with straw color. Swirls on top. Super good with hoppy and kind-of fruity flavors. Another great one and glad TRIA had this gem.

A huge thanks to the awesome trader montrealbcr89 for bringing this 750 back from a recent trip to the farmstead and getting it to me with haste.

Appearance. Pours a hazy honey gold with a finger of thick white head that leaves some nice lace.

Smell. Pineapple, papaya, oranges, red and yellow grapefruit, cedar, and some grainy toasted malts and a little bit of savory herbs.

Taste. Big herbal, floral, and citrusy hops with some pine sap and cedar, a bit of those savoury herbs I was smelling, some grainy, lightly toasted malts, oranges and grapefruit flesh. Some bitterness throughout and some slightly numbing citrus rind in the finish. Very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body with fine medium carbonation. The fine carbonation really stands out among other IPAs.

Overall. A fantastic IPA on par with the best. Reminiscent of heady topper with some more fruit juice flavours. Loved it. Thanks again montrealbcr98!!
