Notes: Love and Hoppiness is the first time in our history that we have released the same beer with different yeasts side-by-side. We used California yeast for Love + Hoppiness in CA and Vermont yeast for Love + Hoppiness in VT. Our goal with the experiment is to better understand our personal preference for “clean” vs “hazy” beer.

Grain bill = 2 Row, Oats, Acid

4.34/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Canned 6/27/18, consumed 7/10/18

L: Hazy, cloudy dirty straw color with a small head that left a little bit of lacing.

A: A bit light and muted, but it's a really enticing, bright mix of citrus and tropical fruits. Definitely wish it was a few levels stronger.

T: Awesome, delicious, bright citrus-forward fruit mix with some tropical fruit, as well as piney & earthy hops. This is on the upper level of tasty pale ales.

F: Medium-light and slightly thin, good carbonation, nice complementary level of bitterness, good dry finish.

O: Terrific pale ale - super juicy and flavorful for the low ABV. I'm get more impressed with each new Track 7 brew I pick up. Ready for more!

3.78/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - mostly hazy and slightly dull orange in color with an off-white, half-finger width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of surface suds. No lacing, save a spot or two.

Smell - Moderate, juicy aroma. Passionfruit and light citrus. Lesser mango. Subtle yeastiness.

Taste - Follows the nose. Flavor is mild, but hits on juicy notes of passionfruit and orange upfront. A hint of mango, pine and spice soon follow. Faint white bread undertone with slight yeast. Lingering passionfruit and citrus in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with moderate carbonation. Slightly velvety mouthfeel. Goes down nice and easy.

Overall - A very good NE-Style pale, but it doesn't quite scratch that itch for me. It's just a bit too laid back for my personal preference.

4.11/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Draught pour at Track 7 in Natomas into a shaker pint. Pours hazy straw yellow with finger of medium density white head that never fully dissipated and left no lacing. Nose is a bit mute, citrus and hints of tropical fruit. Taste is dominated by citrus, with subtle tropical fruit and just a hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel is great, softer than the CA version, carbonation on the higher side, and the finish clean with just a bit of astringency. Liked this variation slightly over the CA version. Very interesting idea, bravo T7!
