3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap poured into a 4 oz sampler glass. The aroma is a potent citrus peel and spruce with a light toasted caramel. It’s a clear, dark orange amber beer with a medium white ring and a light island puff. It leaves a good, micro bubble lace. The taste is a balanced medium high sweet and bitter. A soft carbonation comes with a thin, slick texture and a medium full body. A dry, resinous grapefruit finishes the beer with a sweet, malty caramel. The aftertaste is a strong grapefruit bitter with some biscuit notes.

Kind of an English style with more focus on the malt and less on the hops. It has a nice caramel malt aroma and the flavor has it too. The hops are more of a compliment to balance.

This is one of my favorites. Great hops from the nose to the palate. Nothing but fun to drink!

on tap at the brewpub. for an IPA, this one left a lot to be desired! where were the hops? it looked great, orangy amber with good lacing as I worked my way down the pint glass and medium-bodied, but none of that strong hop profile that leaves you wanting more.
