Thanks to Thirsty_Moe on the growler. A lot of tropical fruits and biscuity smells. Taste really matches the aroma. A sharp bitterness hits the tongue on first sip. Very unique being quite hoppy and still very quenching and refreshing. Good stuff.

I like it. Hop nose is mildly citric, more of a candied fruit sort of thing, pineapple seems most apparent, but a light cantaloupe flavor with a mild floral earthiness, clean bready-caramel malts, mostly balanced finish. Nice pure amber color with a big clean foamy head. There seems to be not much about this beer that screams ’hey look at me’ but that is quite alright, because it is otherwise a well built IPA.

Ładny aromat oraz smak amerykańskich chmieli. Odczuwalne cytrusy i owoce tropikalne. Przyjemna goryczka.

The unassuming aroma is misleading and may hinder the overall enjoyment a little. A little. The brew pours a clear amber and provides a very hop forward taste with strong citrus finish. The bitterness of the hops enhances or, perhaps, is enhanced by the citrus rind finish.

Orange color with a sweet malt nose with a hint of citrus. Sweet taste with a mild bitterness. Slight bitter aftertaste. Blended nicely but not a hop bomb by any stretch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on a guest tap at Six Ten Brewing, Tampa. Orange / gold color with slowly fading head. Aroma is big grapefruit peel, hop oil, and mild pine.
Flavor shows a strong grapefruit presence with a moderate amount of malt in the body that tries to balance the IPA. Body and carbonation level is as it should be but the bitterness is very aggressive and throws it off-center. It’s like it’s bitter just for the sake of being bitter. Barely any real pine or grapefruit flavor for the bitterness. It’s ok.

Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. Slightly hazy copper pour with a modest white head. Shortbread cookies and a bit of orange peel. Definitely sweet, accents of caramel. Honey. Light grassiness. Flavor is a touch toasty. Pie crust. More caramel. Grapefruit citrus peel. Slightly dry on the finish. Pretty substantial. A touch flabby. Medium body, active carbonation. Solid, though not in my wheelhouse.
