Pint can purchased on the Farm. 6/16/18

A very slight haze to an otherwise bright, golden color. Moderate retention of the pure white foamy topping leaves a decent layer of coverage with a slight bit of lace.

The aroma of Spicy and peppery hay, grains and freshly crushed hops prevail. Lightly sweet, white-bready style malt compliments the tangy, dry-earthy and citrusy hop tones. Citrus and pepper, pine and slight floral aromatics also pop right of the nose.

A rye, wheat, hay and lots of barnyard-style, grassy meadows type ipa flavor here folks: Dry, earthy toned hops that have a huge bitter/earthy but green pine effect. Malt that is super light, really crispy and somewhat bready with hints of hot summer wheat and hay. A really wonderfully earthy ipa....as the name would would suggest!! A perfect "Farm-style" flavored ipa.

The visit to this location was awesome. Beautiful farm complex, lots happening on this saturday, live music, bbq, family fun etc. Very friendly staff and very excellent brews and vibes.

Thick foamy rich head never fades, crystal clear golden pilsner color.

Nose big citrus tropical hops as well as fresh cut grass floral chamomile like flowers, citrus rind little tropical thing and faint grapefruit, so much fresh flowers and cut grass, fruity bubblegum.

Taste brings more typical citra, orange juice, little tangerine, plenty of mango and tropical fruits, little pith orange rind, touch resinous pine and spicy, then more fresh cut grass and flowers, juicy, little sweet honey malt. Finish dry, pretty bitter, lingering flowery spicy hop and citrus rind.

Mouth is med bod, fluffy carb.

Overall pretty nice, a different side of citra, def a fun ipa and I'm really excited for this brewery.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue. Good two finger head that fades to leave sticky lacing and nice blanket.

S - Aromas of very bright hops, sticky dank, good light musty notes, nice possibly Nelson, very nice tropical notes and grass, good oranges.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, very good tropical notes, pineapple, light melon, very soft citrus, solid grass notes. Incredibly flavorful. Really really fresh and bright.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, soft.

O - Overall this was a very good representation of the style. Really tasty ipa.

Serving Type: growler

Very solid IPA. Clear, certainly not "New England Style" hazy, but a nice citra profile comes through from the dry hopping. Relatively clean and normal but well executed and really showcases citra.
