From growler

Pours a beautiful, cloudy gold topped with a dense finger of off-white foam. As it recedes oily lacicles slowly coalesce into lasting bas relief designs that give this glass of beer an inviting look it is hard to overstate.

Light/med. aroma that is all about neutral sweet, peachy yeast tones, multi tropical flavors, light floral perfume, hints of herbal bitter. Heavenly.

Taste makes good on the promise of the aroma, every flavor punches the clock on this baby. Med. strength taste. Tropical goodness is the theme and along the way peach, orange zest, and sweet grapefruit lead the way or join the party. Wonderful floral character that sets this apart with its sweet notes. Very bright and balanced, complex hops display, delicious.

Somehow manages to be substantial and resinous while also being light bodied and soft on palate. Killer clean finish that carries the exact right amount of citrus pith bitter to shine.

What can I say these guys kill it, wish they were closer. Doesn't get better than this, really, gonna ding it for strength of taste, otherwise this is my dream beer. Highest recommendation.

Picked-up a single can at Winooski Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, Vermont for an unknown amount. Canned on date of 8/18/22. My seventh brew from these guys. Good, not great.

Good mix of citrus fruit and a very interesting color. That being said, I didn’t love this beer. The flavor for some reason tasted a bit off to me - or just something I didn’t love.

From a 2-week-old can, pours a bright, hazy yellow-orange. Smells has tropical and citrus fruit, along with earthy herbs. Taste follows. An excellent example of the style.

Can from Jeff.
Hazy lemon yellow with a bubbly white head that recedes. Aromas of citrus grapefruit earth and grass with hints of bread and a light alcohol note. Lingering astringency coats my palette long after every sip. I'm bored with the genre.
