Taste is bitter, fruity, herbal and floral with crackers, grapefruit juice, pine needles, dried apricots, unripe mango, unripe pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, resinous wood, grapefruit rinds, freshly cut grass, lemon balm and hints of biscuits.

Very tasty! Dry extremely hoppy IPA.

Just a really good, classic IPA. Sweet, fragrant, citrus aroma. Golden amber-orange color poured with minimal head. Great taste, very balanced mix of grapefruit and citrus, with a robust hop finish that’s so smooth on the palate. Memorable with lingering. One of my favs.

Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doft och smak är maltig med tallbarr, kåda och lättare inslag av grapefrukt. Grapefrukten mer framträdande i eftersmaken. Bra balans mellan sötma och beska.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at home. Almost clear golden with fluffy off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Grapefruit, mango, orange, dank hops with soft silver hazy marijuana, dried flowers, fresh cut grass. Some biscuits, caramel and cookies. Medium sweet going into a long lasting bitter finish that matches the sweetness perfectly. Medium bodied with slightly oily feel. Very nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the Mews Tavern in Wakefield, RI. Solid hops, loaded with citrus tart and not the usual syrupy sweetness that comes with hoppy, high ABV brews. Very good.
