Samples from a growler, thanks! Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice grassy and citrus hop with a bit of earthy grain. Flavor has citrus and pine with a hint sweet grains backing.

On tap at Legends south. Pours clear golden with a thick lacy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, very sweet. Flavour is hoppy, but not thick. Finish is smoothly bitter and clean. So very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Confluence Brewing / Des Moines IA --- Clear, medium gold, good thick rim head, hanging streamers of lace. Taste is malt that clicks in a bit of caramel as it enters the palate, then adds citrus hops in the finish. The finish lingers, finally allowing a bit of malt to re-emerge. A simple, but well-conceived IPA.

Orange beer with a hint of haze. Sticky white head. Nice sharp nose of pine and citrus peel. There is a strong hop bitterness with lots of red grapefruit, Mandarin orange, apricot and a sharp pine bight. There is enough caramel sweetness underneath to support all the hops. Very big for an ipa, and very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taste during RBWG 2014. Mostly clear orange color. Thin khaki off-white head. Leaves some good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of soft. More dry finish. Very nice floral, lemon, light grapefruit aroma. Good caramelly, biscuity malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Solid IPA. More caramel malt than I’d like, though, very dry too.
