Growler filled at the source.

This one pours a moderately hazy golden yellow color, with a big fluffy white head, and a good bit of lacing.

This tastes like lemon, grapefruit, doughy malt, grassy hops, lime, and stone fruit.

This is delicate and nearly perfectly executed. It's got a light and clean bitterness, with a rindy fruitiness, a bit of doughy and crackery malt, and lemon and lime flavors. It's so well constructed.

This is light bodied, super crisp, but still substantial, with a good level of drinkability.

This is really excellent, as expected from these guys.

Growler filled a couple days ago.

Pours s a big fluffy creamy thick 1+ finger head that fades slowly, tons of fluffy lacing, murky milk shake bright orange color.

Nose big kiwi hop awesomeness, tons of musty tropical fruits, kiwi fruit, lemony lime zesty tart, tons of musty typical fruits but I can't label them really, basically epitome of new New Zealand hops, just a little cracker blond malt underneath.

Taste brings more fresh cracker blond malt, toasted doughy, into more kiwi hops, again definition of great New Zealand hops, more musty dank tropical fruits and again hard to label, citrusy lemony kiwi kumquat but only maybe, nice hops but doesn't pop as much as the nose, a bit grassy floral as well. Finish dry lingering grassy floral mild musty tropical hops, little cracker blond malt.

Mouth is med bod a touch watery, carb is decent.

Overall pretty nice, could be improved a bit, but still good.

A: Attractive depth of colors. A central column of gold is shrouded by hazier straw. Great head retention.

S: Nectarine, or summer pit fruit. It is mildly floral; I can hear the bees humming in the peach orchard as they dart out from dense brier patches of berry bushes. A wafting cloud of heady citrus redolent of something sweet and tropical.

M: Woodsy crispiness encapsulates a feeling of juice gushing. Otherwise, medium bodied and creamy. Filling to a fault.

T: First, the malt...doughy, impressionable burnt oak. Kaffir lime leaves are less intense than a squeezed lime. Rather the citric essence develops. White pepper, melon. Kumquat, or, some other tart tomato-like fruit sweetened by the sun.

Overall, the hop-malt paradigm is outrageous. It's an aggressive filibuster of the malt, but only mildly bitter. The two-faced hops keep singing; the short-lived tannin-peel-barricade completely overrun with sweet hop nectar. It's still on the heavy-side of things with dense flavors that prohibit it from being a true session-quality beer. Interesting and approachable.

A: pours a super hazy straw gold, with a pleasant, fizzy one finger head
S: the suggestion of fruity hops with a direct reference to anything in particular, nice, you can almost smell the thickness
T: not complex, but oh so refreshing, subtly fruity with a crisp, buscuity flavor, and a very mild (almost negligible, but still present) hop bite
M: thick, like orange juice, very nice, works better than it should
O: it's a shame they don't distribute much because they could build an empire on this, easy to enjoy and easy to appreciate, an excellent beer
