As far as IPA's go, Susan is about as solid as they come. Appearance is as you would expect from a HF IPA. Golden yellow and hazy. The aroma is of citrus and some light bready malt. Aroma is solid, but doesn't explode out of the glass. Taste is juicy and smooth with very little bitterness. As with most HF beers, the mouthfeel is soft and incredible. Nothing harsh or overwhelming about this beer at all. Just a solid, well crafted, tasty brew!

Had at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT.
Very enjoyable and look forward to having again. Great balance between hops and taste.

Pale yellow with minimal head and tons of cheetah lace.

Grassy, cannabic dankness, and sturdy backyard weeds dominate the nose.

The taste flips the script, while still grassy, by including pineapple, orange, grapefruit and cracker malts.

On draft. Nice solid beer with a dry, hoppy flavor. Beautiful yellowy orange color. A touch tamer for IPAs but it has a wonderful finish and after taste.
