Pint can. 11/30/17. Opened on 12/11/17

A hazy straw gold color. Thick and rocky white foam cover. Holds up well. Big lace.

The Ella hop aroma is rather extraordinary, sweet tropical fruits, pineapple, pear, apples and cream. Very juicy, slight citrus and wicked tropical. Not much eathiness or green notes to be detected.

Oh my! What an excellent hop flavor. A very complex hop effect that includes: dry, herbal earthiness ( unlike the nose) rustic citrus, earthy grains and sour fruits. The malt rides right along side with a dry, herbal bite, wheat and crystal style malt. Soft tropical fruits like, honeydew mellon and starfruit keep it interesting. Grainy, slightly earthy fruity effect overall.

The mouthfeel starts out with a nice, crisp, grainy malt kick. Juicy in the middle with a slightly smooth, then dry finish. Complex body.

Overall, a very impressive and complex hop strain, well executed with a bold and sweet fruity aroma. Much more well rounded and complex flavor that includes serious earthiness. This one covers alot of ground.

Pours a huge fluffy head that fades slowly with big sticky soapy lacing, murky pear color

Nose is dank and lemony, tropical, floral, super lemony, lime and lemonade, passion fruit, little pineapple and citrus

Taste little cereal grainy malt, little biscuit wheat, into big hops, lemony, little musty, passion fruit, grapefruit, lemony, little spicy, green grassy and musty vinous white grape, interesting spiciness. Fair bitterness, drier spicy hop finish

Mouth is med bod, fluffy carb, creamy too

Overall a nice beer, good representation of Ella hops, nice base beer.

Had this on tap at Night Shift. Hazy gold with a sticky head. Citrusy aroma. Flavor is more earthy. Fairly crisp. Quite good, though not my favorite hop variety.

16oz can dated 12/1/17.

Pours cloudy gold with a pillow head of white. Nice retention and lacing. Mild hop notes of peach, melon, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Pithy and dry on the palate with a slightly coarse bitterness. Grapefruit pith with bitter pine and zero malt. Finishes with a coarse, hollow bitterness and citrus pith.

A bit rough and bitter with a nose that lacks.

Can from Colonial
Hazy deep yellow color with a decent sized long lasting bubbly white head. Spicy earthy grassy resinous pine dankness with just a touch of citrus pith and fruit. Pretty tasty beer.

A bit underwhelmed but ok. Light in color..faint nose and flavor. Kinda like a session NE IPA in its muted aspects.

On tap at the brewey.

Pours a hazy orange.

The smell is very tropical, with nice hints of lime and pine.

The taste is nice and resiny, loads of pine with a very well incorporated hop bite. The finish is long and floral.

Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, like most NE IPAs.

I thing this is the first beer I've had that was single hopped with Ella, and I liked it. Very balanced and easy on the palate.
