A fresh growler once again sent by BA extraordinaire cavedave in a BIF. Pouring this jug in my Weyerbacher tulip for the taste drive!

Look- Pours a brilliant gold color with a small finger of creamy white foam. Beautiful lacing appears as the foam settles.

Smell- Orange, mango, some grapefruit and a hint of malt.

Taste- Blood orange, grapefruit, pineapple and some floral esters in the finish. All subtle, but a very complementary mix. A nice bit of malt bringing up the finish.

Feel- Slick and oily with a slight bitter hop bite in the back.

Overall- A super drinkable IPA that has a nice mix of tropical fruit flavors that don't compete for center stage and a nice complementary malt backbone. My only slight knock on it was the rather tame smell, otherwise a really tasty brew that I'd make a regular in my rotation if I had access to it.

1/2 growler filled at Green Growler Grocery in Croton on Hudson , NY.

Pours heavily hazed lighter amber,off white super fine bubble head, and leaving great looking webs of lace all the way up the glass. Nice looking glass of beer

Super fruity tropical nose. Pineapple, oranges, lemons.

Soft and tasty tropical fruit hops all over this one. Very enjoyable, easy drinking and super worthy. Nice creation in brewing... Go get some.

Extreme notes of mild grapefruit and a full compliment of pine on the finish. Sadly a little lacking on mouth feel. More carbonation would have added zest to the palette

Wow! I swing by RD every few weeks for some growlers and picked up a few 2L fills of this.

Pour is a turbid half hazy (not crazy Hoof thick but regular hazy). Smell is all tropical fruit with the slightest bit of lemongrass, no malt to my nose.

Here is the weird thing:
The first of the two growlers, if tasted blind, I would have guessed TH. Tasted like a baby Julius if I dare make the comparison.
Now the second growler....waited about 7 days to open and it was nothing like the first. Fill was a tad low but even with taping the cap after a day or two realizing it would not be opened soon it went sideways.

Still a great brew and I'm hoping to get some more soon. Well done RD.

Golden brass in color. Well composites, uniform 2F cream colored head. Orange pineapple smoothie on nose. Tropical fruit. Peach skines and pine bedding. Semi dry, med-light body. Fresh cut citrus, earthiness in taste. Bready malts, crackery. Mango, nectarine tropical notes sweeten it somewhat. Fades with mild floral bitterness.

Well balanced with a solid citrus pop and clean finish. Thoroughly enjoyable beer. A small step above Divided by Zero. Top 5 NY state IPA in my opinion.

Cheers!
