Low clingy head, hazy gold color. Light caramelly malt body with a bit of roasted grain notes. Oaky maltiness at the end just before swallowing. Big hop kick throughout, especially afterwards. Some character to this IPA but also something not quite 100% about it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Pike Street location. This brew is a cloudy orange color with a medium and fluffy off-white head that lasts awhile. Patches of lacing. Citrus, hops and bready malt in the nose. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with flavors of hops, citrus and green grapes, along with some malt as a base. The finish is hoppy with lingering grapefruit taste. Pretty solid all around.

Nice looking cloudy copper color with a flush 2/3 inch head. Enjoyable citrusy hop aroma, that had me at first thinking amarillo. Flavor is lightly citrus and high in candi taste with some wet sock tossed in and a tinge of grapefruit.
