It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of pine, orange peel, light resin. Lingering bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Typical IPA orange in colour with medium carbonation. Classic aromas of white grapefruit, grass clippings, and a bit of caramel malts. Hop forward in the mouth as well, with the citrus, white pepper, and cut grass notes blending with a solid pale and caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied, with a chunky and building bitterness. A solid example of the classic American IPA style, but the bitterness became somewhat opressive by the end of the first pint.

Love how the taste lingers. Darker and heavier than my typical grapefruit IPA love, but one of my favorite Fitger's Brewhouse beers.

Filtered orange-tan. Nice dry strong hop mouthfeel. A solid US IPA, above par. Full bodied and bittter, the filtration really lets the hops shine.

Poured from a growler. Aroma is pine, citrus, and caramel. Flavors are pine, lemon, citrus, orange peel, and a very light malt. Very nice Ipa, pretty balanced not to bitter at all. My first fitgers beer loved it!

Great beer which is worth having more than once. It is great especially nice and fresh at the brewery. It is well worth picking up a growler to enjoy.
