3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance: very clear golden orange with frothy white head. Aroma: big floral notes, some tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Taste: mild floral hoppiness up front with a little citrus coming in and a light bread and toast backbone ending with some dry tea leaf and bitter pine. Mouthfeel: thinnish body with medium carbonation. Overall: It is decent. The aroma definitely sets up great expectations but the taste was quite a bit flat by comparison. It's a solid beginning for this new brewery.

Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Mostly clear orange amber color. Good thin khaki ring of head, decent dots of lace. Awesome citrusy c-hop aroma in the nose, and some light caramel biscuity malt. Light zesty sweet taste, mild to moderate bitter at this stage in the tasting. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Very nice, hoppy, aromatic IPA, this one is!
