I didn’t love this one...too heavy in the body for me. Has a good bitter piney hop nose and body but it drinks very heavy and the finish holds too much. Not dry or crisp enough for what I like in an IPA.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Comes out of the bottle with a clear orangey color and a nice white head that quickly dissipates, but leaves some nice lacing. It has the aroma of hops, but I don’t taste them on the front end. There is a taste of grapefruit at first, subsequently joined by hoppiness and a lengthy backflavor.

On tap at yardhouse Waikiki. Pours orange gold with a large white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Smells amazing could be because beer selection in Hawaii is light. Flavor is citrus and bitter pine. Taste some citra hop in there.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich golden hue, slight haze with a big white head. Smells piney, spicy and floral. Spicy, piney and resinous up front with moderate carbonation, fades to nice floral taste. Excellent lacking all the way down the glass. Medium body. Aftertaste piney on the tongue and a spiciness lingers in the throat. Heavy caramel notes emerge as it warms up. Grapefruit rind/pith on the tinge in the aftertaste.
