Nonic pint type draft at the brewpub in Gilbert, Arizona. The pour is a slight haze golden orange with a foamy white head. The aroma is fruity bright citrus hop, some grass and a nice background of biscuit malt. The taste is the bright fruit citrus hops, adds a bit of pine and finishes dry with the grass. The biscuit malt is present, and provides a great backbone to the beer. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the dry clean finish. Nice one.

Terminus (3446) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Tap from Growler from brewpub however, i have had this beer before in the past 2 years Pours bright deep orange hue with a very small soapy white head. Nose is typical moden IPA however its not dank, just fresh C hops all the way. Pretty standard here. Flavors follow suit-lots of c hops, cheese, lite tropical, flowers. Intense citrus zest here. This is what Stone was shooting for on their Delicious IPA hwoever, that failed and this did very well. Pretty straight forward IPA and thats not a bad thing.
