Slightly hazy golden amber pour at the brewery with a slight white head. Nice hoppy nose. Quite nice mouthfeel. Hoppy, complex and just the right balance of malt and bitterness. Very good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Burnt orange, hazy. One finger of dense, sticky tan. Some thick horizontal lace. Bright, fruity nose. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, a little fresh-cut grass. Outrageous. Such clear aromas. Fruitier in the flavor. More mango and other tropical tones play about, though I still get a touch of grass. Alcohol as well. A balance of fruits and bitterness. Medium body. Soft on the tongue. Mild, tingly carbonation. Great hop flavors, so clean and clear. The oats add just a bit of fruitiness and body. Crazy drinkable.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, lighter grapefruit, and a touch of pine. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with moderate sweet tropical fruits and citrus. The finish has moderate grapefruit with some light floral notes and faint spice. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler. Pours a beautiful gold with white fluffy head that left quickly. Well carbonated, but not overly so. Aroma is floral, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is floral hops, piney and slightly bitter. No malt backbone to speak of, really well done. This is the exact type of IPA I enjoy most.
