In a snifter the beer was a pretty gold color with a very tiny white head.
Citrus aroma mostly. A little bit of pine.
Grapefruit and pine resin taste. A bit muted.
Not too hoppy.

16 oz can shared among friends.

A: burnished gold pushing towards amber but not quite there. Not much of a head.

S: smells sweet a little malty and some light fruit smells that are pushed away by the malts.

T: some of the fruits come out then it's a malty sweet taste that lingers on the finish.

M: lower carbonation and some alcohol slickness

O: it's not bad but not worth seeking out. These guys don't make a single beer so far I am thrilled about.

16 oz can, no date found but probably early Feb. 2017

Pours a pale golden color with a very slight haze. Mine had a fluffy white head that rose above 3 fingers but otheres here say otherwise.

The semi-sweet, dank, citrus pine aroma jumps out at you. Smells like weed, which may appeals to some folks. This mellows out to a tropical fruit scent over time.

The taste is very hop-forward, as expected. Yes citrus and pine rein, but also some peach and passion fruit notes come in, balancing out a nice, light and sweet maltiness. This is just fantastic flavor -- they have succeeded with this flavor where many have fallen short. It has a clean dry finish with just a hint of bitterness over caramel malt flavor.

Overall this is a great beer. They should be damn proud of it. I will be seeking this out again.

Delicious beer.
Pours a translucent golden hay.
Smells of peach and passionfruit.
Taste is awesome, lightly bread malt followed by a sweet fruity citrus hop end. Really crisp and clean finish.
Lighter mouthfeel for a double.
Great beer, reminds me of offerings from Finback.

Lacked a malt foundation. Too much hops without enough to balance out the flavor.

11/8 crowler. Very good. Smelled better than it tasted. Drank a Maine Brewing Lunch right after which outclassed the Headstash but it was still very good. Will recommend.
