bomber. Different. Hoppy? Yes. IPA? Maybe. Citrus w/ slight biscuit notes but really lite in body; thirst quenching. Extra points for fun bottle, locality, & $4 22oz.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Papa’s and Beer in Asheville, NC served in a pint glass; deep orangy-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of heavy citrus/grapefruity hops with some malt sweetness backing. Taste adds more rounded citrus zest notes and earthy grass. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering citrus finish. Kind of a one dimensional grapefruit hop bomb but sometimes that’s nice.

Poured from a can. Dark orange in color. Slightly hazy, with plenty of carbonation and a foamy white head. Aroma of wheat and faint grassy/citrusy hops. Taste is lightly malted, sweet, mild hops, and big time bitterness that lingers. Seems a bit off balance. No detection of alcohol. Okay beer.

4oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving great, full sheets of lace. Very nice grapefruit hop, very zesty, assertive, and graepfruity. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly slick. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, mild alcohol warmth. Works well with the hops. A very nice assertive, potent, IPA. Awesome aroma, but a touch sweet.
