On tap at Gig’s. A hazed gold with a decent white cap. Westcoast IPA aromas - floral, grapefruit, citrus some substantia malts. Robust, thick moth feel, big blast of citrusy-resinous hops are balanced off well with ample crystal and pale malts. Clean bitter finish. Very fresh tasting. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a huge frothy white head and tons of lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts, light caramel, guava, passionfruit, mango and other tropical fruits with a light touch of grass in the background. Taste is an extremely well balance of tropical fruit hops, sweet pale malts and bitterness. Nothing harsh is found up front or in the finish and just an absolute pleasure to drink!
