The beer is sunset orange with a frothy, off-white head. Lots of citrus and grapefruit right up front. Big time grapefruit and fresh hop presence. Profoundly bitter finish, with lingering tartness. Grapefruit rind, orange rind. Dry. Yet, the feel is somehow creamy and smooth. Well done. I hadn’t heard of this beer and had no expectations. A solid beer. I’d happily drink / buy this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to soonerchamps. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leaves nice soapy lacing. Aroma is dank, juicy citrus hops with some pine and toasted malt. Taste is sweet oranges and grapefruit. Nice bread and caramel malt base. Finish adds some pine and flowers to the hop profile. A very well done West Coast IPA.

Amber color out of the can with a short lived white head. Thick, sweet candy citrus and tropical fruit nose. Flavors of red grapefruit, orange juice, tropical fruit, with a long bitter candied grapefruit rind finish. This is a big, chewy hop forward beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: stoplight amber & orange tinted body, hazy in the middle, translucent at the edges. Topped with a nice, chunky layer of light beige foam. Aroma is juicy, wet grapefruit flesh, light pine, a mild fruity floral character, & just a light touch of toasted, bready sweetness. Taste is lightly bitter up front with some dense, bitter pine, light herbal notes, grapefruit & citrus peel, & a much stronger, sweeter malt body with light toast & faint caramel notes. Pretty nice, wish it was a little more dry.
