Bomber. Clear copper orange, off-white foamy head fades. Citrus evergreen hop aroma. Crisp clean fresh citrus pine hop taste, mild caramel malts, quite floral later on. Average carbonation, lighter than medium bodied, moderately hopped. More sessional but still: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Breakside Brewery. Golden color with bubbles. Light citrus aroma with some floral notes. Taste is not quite highly hoppy floral, grass, and citrus, with some malty backbone. A little too light for me, mostly because I have been spoiled by Breakside’s great imperial and one-off IPAs.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Huge grapefruit and tangerine aroma. The flavor is again filled with grapefruit and tangerine hop notes, there is some pine character as well. The bitterness is soft and pleasant, the malt notes are bready/cracker. This is a fantastic IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Amber with a frothy off white head. Found this one a little off balance with a large tropical punch, some piney hops, a growing abrassive bitterness, some caramel malts, moderate carbonation and mild+ body.
