Had on-tap at the Farmhouse in Emmaus, PA. Poured a yellow-orange color with a small white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and earthy hops. Tasted of earthy hops, citrus (quite acidic) and a touch of sweet fruit/honey. VERY bitter.

Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Fairly one-dimensional and overall not great, but worth a try for the experience. I wouldn't get more than a sample simply because it is so dry and bitter...not very drinkable, and the style is not an excuse as I've had some very drinkable DIPA's.

First had: on tap at the Farmhouse, Emmaus, PA

Poured a medium amber hue with a small off-white head. Smell of citrus zest and fresh hops. Taste starts out with a caramel coated biscuity-ness, but is soon overtaken by a good dose of fresh hops, lemon zest, and a bit of grapefruit essence, with a subtle minty quality. Decently balanced with neither aspect fully taking complete control for any extended bit of time. Medium mouthfeel, and quite drinkable, though nothing really above average.
