3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Crystal clear, light golden colored body with a thick head of sudsy white. Exceptionally clean, citrusy Cascade hop aroma that abounds with fresh oranges and grapefruit, with hints of papaya. Slightly grassy, but very clean and fresh. A subtle caramel malt sweetness compliments the hop aroma nicely. Medium light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel with a soft texture and a dry, clean finish. Pleasantly dry, but a smooth graham cracker malt flavor starts out the palate. Hop flavors suggest mostly grapefruit and orange citrus, but lack any bold, pithy, bitterness. Wonderfully clean and fresh, but balanced to a fault. I’d love to drink several pints of this, which is definitely doable considering the body and dryness, but the hop punch is just a little bit too pedestrian. Exceptional mouthfeel and texture, but the bitterness falls a bit flat on the palate. If this was classified as an APA, it would be the ultimate session beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Crystal clear orange with fine medium head and moderate lacing. An opulent bouquet of grassy, stemmy, tangeriney hops to start; a touch of cheese/onion/diacetyl/smoke to follow. Flavors are pleasant, leafy, sweet, pithy, citrusy hops on a foundation that is largely gentle and tealike. The beer is rather light in body but it doesn’t suffer too much for it.

On draft at the beerpub in Napa, CA this poured a cloudy gold to amber with a good sized off-white head and good lacing. Nose of citrus hops and some fruit. The body is medium and the mouthfeel almost greasy Slides across the tongue. The flavor is citrus and caramel malts and the finish is long, dry, and bitter. A very refreshing IPA and make you want a second glass. There is a lot to like here.
