Growler purchased today at the brewery poured into a Brew Gentlemen tulip glass:

Look: Pours a hazy light orange to almost yellow color with about an inch of head. Tons of lacing present and the lacing retention is great!

Smell: Getting notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, some pine, and some citrus!

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me! Tons of tropical tasting notes and some pine! On this hot summer day this beer is tasting dank!

Feel: Medium bodied. Nice and crisp on this hot summer day!

Overall: Another solid offering from the crew at Helltown! This is a very solid sessionable IPA. These guys are crushing it on their IPAs! Glad I grabbed a growler of this today while at the bottle release!

Pours a hazed golden peach color with a white soapy head and plenty of lacing. The aroma has some grapefruit and dank to it. The taste has a bright hoppy citrus with pine and resin. Alpha acids are on the high range with a satisfying bitterness rounding everything out. Getting a bit of melon as well. The sweet pale malts have a bit of almost nutty character but extremely faint. Hoppy for sure but with a sturdy malt foundation. Light to medium bodied, well crafted ale. A pretty durn good pale ale from Helltown.
