Notes / Commercial Description:
Mother Nature's seasons are amazing, where all her creations flux between an existence in winter's comatose state, spring's colorful fling, summer's hot dance, and fall's laid back swing. The creative juices of musicians jump from an unconscious, winter mindset spurring you to think concerts, road trips and campsites. One sip of this beer will get your blood flowing as you jam to your favorite tunes!

Disclaimer: We don't recommend hanging upside down in a tree, you're not Eddie... It seems fitting to chill in a hammock while listening to great music and sipping a triple-dry hopped, Imperial IPA -- Music for the taste buds!

On site previously, and from a growler: slightly hazy, golden color, tenacious dense head. Wonderful smell of citrusy hops. Dank. This is a wonderful imperial IPA: there is some malt in the background but it is a big load of dank citrusy hops.

Slightly hazed golden orange with one finger of dense white head. Rings of lace as the head drops.
Smell is floral and pine notes.
Taste is orange zest with lots of pine bitterness. Malt support is a bit low.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter.
Overall a tasty and big beer. The alcohol is well hidden under that hop bitterness.

Half liter bottle courtesy of rnewt pours initially fairly clear but the last few ounces dumped a shit-ton of opaque haze in the mix. Not much for head and leaves a nice, small ring of unbroken lace.

Nose spouts off some tropical and pine - like a sangria with mango and papaya with a few pine cones floating around for decor.

Very smooth and the hops seem to be mostly up front, starts passion/dragon/star fruit and goes to a biscuity-sweet (maybe waffle mix) maltiness with very little scathing bitterness on the back end. Alcohol is well integrated and uber-smooth. Everything plays together nicely...this one should get more attention, good stuff.

On tap at the brewery.

Beer pours a hazy gold color with a small white head.

Aromas are of hard candies, oranges, and grapefruits.

Taste starts with some light caramel and hard candy sweetness. Then the beer is nothing but hops. Notes of sweet oranges, bitter grapefruit, and pine resin last through the finish.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Full bodies, but not heavy, and smooth.

Overall, this is a good example of the style. Solid if not spectacular.
