Sample from the brewery.

Brilliant copper hue, lacing showboats on the glass. Smells of fresh clementines, evergreen, papaya, white tea, birch bark, ruby red grapefruit pith and some breadiness. Deep smoothness, citrus rind and a weigh-in of the moderate sized body to start. Very hop forward, even the brewer states that this could be an IPA of sorts. Assertive bitterness but not devastating a whole lot of hop flavor to comb through ... not a chore but sheer enjoyment. Some maltiness peeks through with mild bready, nutty and even a faint caramel tone. Fruity with suggestions of grapefruit, pineapple guava and blood oranges. Very hoppy and somewhat bitter dry finish.

Amazing to say the least, this is a serious session brew here ... I could easily drink this all day long. If you are a true hop head then you'll want to hunt this one down.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a hazy amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light caramel and leafy hop spice.

The taste consisted of soft caramel, crackers and a lingering leafiness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a nice lingering bitterness.

Overall a very flavorful session ale.

Orange-wildflower honey colored beer with floral and citrus aromatics. Sweet clementine and tangerine aroma, but lemon peel in taste. Rose hips, very floral spring sickle with wet pine underneath. Dank, ripe tropical fruit like papaya or lychee. Soft and flaky, cracker malt that is doughy at times.
