12oz can picked up at Brewforia Meridan for $2... Pours with a nice 2 finger white head that supplies great sheets of lacing.. the beer is slightly hazed orange.
Nose leans toward the tropical fruity hops with some tangerine and grapefruit.... a fair amount of residual maltiness seems out of lace and carries too much caramel malt.
The caramel malts now carry something that I automatically associate with diacetyle... a bit butter/slick for sure... good bitterness and flavor hops help this brew out, but I cannot get past the malty messiness.
Body is light with a light/medium carbonation... still pretty drinkable despite my above negatives.... just needs some work.

Tap @ Merchant’s Cafe & Saloon: Gold color with a super yummy aroma of apricots and juniper. Similar flavor follows. Tasty IPA out of the wine country of WA!

Can, slightly cloudy amber beer, bubbly white head. Aroma pale malt, lilikoi, fresh cut grass. Taste is mint, lemon, orange, spruce, and citrus rind bitter. Is there a hint of alium? Maybe not. Palate is smooth, finish is bitter hops. Carbonation bright. Classic west coast IPA, done well.

Robe dorée et sa mousse qui reste petite. Au nez, des agrumes et cette bonne vieille base maltée caramélisée qui ne l’est pas trop. Au goût, c’est une huile de conifères, des fleurs et des pamplemousses en gang. Les céréales s’amusent à être discrètes. En bouche, le corps m’apparaît être de moyenne densité. Les bulles s’accélèrent et nettoient mon palais avec efficacité. En finale, les houblons procurent ce que j’appelle une verte sécheresse.

Pours golden yellow with a stable white head. The aroma is floral and citrus with a subtle malt. Flavor is malt, citrus and subtle spice. Finishing crisp with a refreshing hop bite.

Orange gold. Subdued nose of bitter citrus and slightly dank hops. Bitter pine and orange citrus. Solid and just what you’d expect.

This is a great find from a supermarket in Spokane. Dare I say that this almost tastes like Grapefruit Scuplin? I’m sure a side by side might dispel that, but this is really a nice blast of citrus with a super clean finish. I got lucky. I’m not the type that whips out the phone to scope a beer in the supermarket before I buy it. I figured luck of the gamble in a random city for work. Great stuff.

Fantastic IPA with great citrus and floral. Nice malt to balance this beer as well.

Orange pour, off-white head. Nose is piney fresh hops, tropical fruits. Taste is resin, pine, sweet, lasting bitter soapy finish.

Can to glass. Bangin’ PNW IPA. Citra is obvious but it’s balanced nicely by the other hops. In fact, everything is well balanced here -- major hop punch but super drinkable and clean. Heard a lot about this beer and it was all that.

Just a wonderful IPA. A little thin bodied given the almost 7% alcohol content. If you like a grapefruit citrus crushable IPA, this thing is wonderful. Does not deviate from the hop heritage. The only issue is the small can this one came in!
