Draft at college inn. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, cotton candy. Hazy light amber with patchy head. Thick, almost syrupy texture, but goes down smooth. Bitter finish. Pretty sweet on the tongue followed by a nicely balanced citrus bitterness. Biscuit. Resin. Not too shabby.

On tap at the brewery. Sounds like this is their big IPA. There were certainly plenty of bitter hops, but I didn’t get the full rounded hop character that is the (admittedly high) standard for west coast breweries. Still, very drinkable.

Pours a beautiful hazy amber orange color, with a thin frothy white head. Strong citrus scent from the hops with subtle floral notes as well. Good amount of bitterness and crisp taste complimented by the soft carbonation and full body. Long hoppy finish and a very nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy grapefruits with a bit of a juiciness and a lightly sweetened caramel. Some resins and a few tropical fruits as well. Flavor is similar. Juicier citrus pine resins with mostly grapefruits and a few tropical fruits. A lightly sweetened caramel malt backing before this finishes dry, moderately bitter, resiny, and fruity before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, somewhat oily body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Well hopped with lots of juicy, resiny grapefruits and a few tropical fruits that are balanced with a light caramel. Good beer.
