Draft. Pours perfectly clear gold with a thin white head. Taste like smooth grapefruit and pine. Very light and smooth. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like citrus and pine hops, slightly creamy and nutty.

Double IPA that gives Pliny the Elder a serious run for its money. Super smooth. Light. Extraordinarily drinkable. One of my favorites.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear medium golden color with a fizzy finger of white foam. The nose is lightly floral grassy notes, a touch of citrus and a clean subtle sweetness. The palate follows with more prominent flavor than the subtle nose hinted at. Notes of pine, grapefruit, straw and a grassy citrus peel bitterness rolls the flavors into the finish. there is a different mouthfeel and a lingering grain flavor similar to toasted puffed rice... which makes sense with the grain bill but Im not sure it adds to the beers overall appeal for myself. Interesting with a well hidden alcohol.

12oz bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a soapy one finger dense white head. Aroma starts out slightly tropical with some notes of grapefruit pineapple & orange, sweet malts become more prominent as it warms. Taste is super fruity up front. Lots of mango and lemon immediately. Blends into some soft, dry pine and finishes with a nice crisp bitter hop. Lighter body, with soft moderate carbonation.

Trade from Ed5388, thanks Ed! Pours a nice yellow gold with a white head that falls quickly. Aroma is nice - citrus, mango and pineapple. Hoppy, but smooth - showcases grapefuit and tangerine hops on a very dry pale malt. Dry pine finish with a little oily coating from the hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Sander’s in NYC. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. Nose has lots of pine, heavy pale malts, light anise, ripe grapefruit. Medium to big sweet flavor, some alcohol punch, floral and piney hops, mild bitter grass. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Quite sweet to finish, some sugary pale malts, more flowers, pine, white bread, grapefruit. Not bad.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of my favorite ipas. It pours a golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. This beer is made with wild rice and you can actually taste it. It has a nice balance of citrus and hop flavors as neither are over powering. This beer is pretty carbonated maybe because of the rice?? But it is light for an ipa and even refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours much lighter than I expected...light straw color, with thin white head. Amazing nose - grapefruit very strong. Pretty light bodies for a double IPA, but tastes of citrus, pine, and bitter finish. Can drink this all day!
