On tap. Pours with a hazed orange body with a lasting white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, spicy hop note and some citrus rind. Flavors contrast the fruitiness of the aroma with pine, pinenuts and spicy hop notes. A dry-raw grain note as well. Kind of confused with a citrus aroma yet a pine flavor. Lively carbonation, nice and attenuated in the West Coast IPA fashion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Light grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and caramel flavor with light earth and light wheat. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light caramel lingers with light wheat. Made with a lot of wheat which shows up in background of flavor but really shows in mouthfeel - smoothing out things.
