On tap at Craft 260 in Fairfield today. Really nice display of CTZ hops., aroma is definitely a hop wallop. Flavor is a hair less than the nose would have you believe. Lots of citrus fruit in this, nice grapefruit note all around. Finishes with a hint of graininess which brings it down from a 4.25 to a 4. Feels nice and light in the stomach and easy to drink. Still prefer the THC Mosaic over this one, though.

Pretty solid, but unspectacular pale ale in my eyes here. The main thing I extrapolated from it was that it smells and tastes more like marijuana than most marijuana smells and tastes; so if you're really into dank, earthy hop profiles, this is all for you.

Hazy, dark orange in color, fingers worth of head which fades out pretty quick. Dank resin in the flavor, pretty robust hop bitterness. Grapefruit peel, a touch of onion on the finish. Mouthfeel is light despite the cloudy appearance. Really delicious single hop brew from an up and coming CT brewery.

Pours rich golden slightly hazy withva rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of melon and hop...solid taste and very well balanced and full bodied. Very enjoyable.
