Picked this one up yesterday from the brewery and have been drinking it all week while up there.

A-straw/pale yellow with haze and nice 1 finger head. In the bars it had a bit more.

S-grassy citrus hops with a hint of mustiness.

T-very citrusy hops with a nice malt balance.

M-medium body with low carbonation, probably from getting the growler yesterday.

O-Great session beer!!

Had at Blackback Pub a few times in Waterbury VT. Served in a snifter this golden brew has a fluffy head that fades pretty fast.

Great hoppy aroma, bright citrus, lime, pungent earthy hops. Taste is fantastic, cracker malts first, good sweetness, big juicy and pineapple hops. Some dank leafiness as well as some other oily flavors.

Really light and refreshing. Strong hops for the light malts. Motueka and Amarillo really shine here. John Kimmich and HF made an awesome collab here!
