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!

Solid across the board, just not unique enough to really jump out.
