From a bottle. Tastes very hoppy, nutty, like sweet orange citrus, bready malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet bready malt, sweet orange citrus hops, dry pine, and sweet grapefruit. Clear gold with a fizzy white head.

An IPA whit thin white head, aroma is charged with citrus and tropical fruit, orange color, taste to grapefruit and mango with some caramelo malt, médium to high body and astringente, a long bitter ending with some alcohol taste but very well balanced. A great beer!

Rocky pillows of eggshell white top a light amber liquid that reeks of grapefruit and pine. I haven’t had an beer in quite a while that was so representative of that IPA cliché citrus and resin and it feels nice to get back to the basics. The aroma is powerful during the pour, holds strong until the first swallow, and the head laces the glass in sticky, persistent rings as the brew disappears. Nice finish, leaves my tongue a little dry, but not uncomfortably so, and hasn’t ruined my palate for the next brew for the evening. Bitter with a comfortable malt foundation, nicely balanced and apparently my newest go-to IPA. If only they had it available in 12s in my area...

Bottle (12oz $1.50): Hazzy golden with nice white head. Need to add details, but generally a very good IPA that I could drink regularly.
