Sampled at GABF. In the tasting glass it sits a clear gold. White head. Powerful nose of citrus. Medium plus body. Resinous. Flavor is rich caramel malts with lots of citrus. The finish is nicely bitter. Solid IPA.

Pours a cloudy yellow, almost like a wit. Taste, however, is strongly hop driven: pine, lemon. Quite bitter and refreshing. I’d call this an IPA actually, as it lacks any significant malt presence. Moderate abv and very tasty--what more could you want?

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Big fan of Mosaic hops and this was quite fresh - so color me a fan. Lightly dank and tropical fruit forward. Moderate to lightly bitter.

Draft at GABF 2014. Pours a clear amber body with white lacing. Aroma is funky fruit, tropical hop and light pine. Mouthfeel is medium with bright fruity hop at first, followed by tropical fruits, light dank character, fresh pine, citrus and light zest. Really nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Thanks, C! Pours a hazy pale gold with a loose white head. Big sweet appealing floral nose with fresh pine. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bright, tangy grapefruit from the attack all across the mid-palate. Tastes truly like a glass of fresh grapefruit juice if you’re absent-minded about it. Very nice. Crisp bitey finish.

Pours a thin clear straw colored body.
The aroma is honey, floral and pine. Pretty nice.
The taste is a strong grapefruit bitterness from beginning to end.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
It’s a good and drinkable IPA. Quite nice.

Tap at Capitol Beer. Pours gold with a white head. Strong fruit/citrus aroma. Med body, maybe. Flavor is rather exotic fruit with some definite citrus. It starts bitter and it builds to a quite bitter finish. Not NW harsh, but more like something from New Zealand.

Pint on tap at the Brewpub. The aroma has a ton of tropical fruit with notes of mango, guava, and passionfruit. Light pine, too. Really quaffable. Moderately hazy golden body with a small, white head, which is pretty weak. Starts with fruity, citrus, and tropical fruity hoppy goodness. Moderately bitter. The maltiness is subdued, but strong enough to balance this single hop beer. It shows the Mosaic hops off very well. Finishes with a juicy hop kick. Awesome stuff.
