Six pack acquired from Julio’s. Pours out a light golden-orange brew. "Bright" citrus-spice aroma. Light "tea" flavors on the top end. Good mix of hops. Some spice, some lemon. Bitter-bread on the backside. A little sticky on the finish, but otherwise pretty good.

12oz bottle into a stemmed belgain 19.5oz glass. Wasnt expecting the mellowness and citrus prominece. Was thinkgmore more of a hop bomb considering the doublewide. Head is massive and super fast to jump out of ones glass if not looking. Simmers down to a nice frothy parade within the glass. bitter citrus ensues. sour grapefruit, white grapes, citrus melody, and spicey orange peel and pineapple. theres a tang to the after bite that is both tropical and bitter. color is a hazyorange with resemblance of a heffyand a tiny pale ale. This is defiantely a fresh ale with sparkling and vibrant hops charateristics within the refreshing image of this brew. almost feels like a definite summer brew. nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Acquired in a trade and enjoyed in a Portsmouth Snifter.
A - 3-Finger totally white creamy head with a top of big huge bubbles. Faded slowly. Light gold appearance, straw gold in the light.
S - Very light scent. Very piney, sweet, malty. Weak overall though.
T - very astringent taste. sort of boring. Finish is bitter with some citrus but dominated by pine.
M - 20% carbonation on the mouth swish. Light body. Meh finish
O - This is an alright beer. Not great and not mind-blowing. It’s alright and will pair well with this chicken sub sandwich I just bought.

Bottle. Lacks any you’re of unique character. Decent bitterness but flavor is bland. Won’t by again.

Ah, so so IPA. It had a weird head, and didn’t have the classical IPA characteristics. Had no overtones, weak on hops, and left me looking for something more complex. However, it’s a refreshing IPA for a warm day.

Really great IPA, lighter, more golden in color. Goes well with a variety of foods, including grilled meats and veggies but also a variety of pastas.
