4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler thanks to the fella’s at HA. Pours a bight golden orange with a nice small fluffy white head. Aroma is bursting with the notes of citrus, orange, soft lemon and juicy fruit notes. Flavor is equally as good, lots of that citrus, some of the grapes in the Nelson coming out in the latter mouthfeel, very bright and fresh fruity character, drying out towards a fairly bitter finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Fine offering.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a lightly hazed, golden color, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and clingy patches of lacing. The nose began lightly dank, then offered nice, fruity expression as citrusy orange & grapefruit, subtly malt sweetened. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste also included some alcohol involvement, a citrusy, rind-like, and resinous bitterness that lingered to finish with some dryness, and as the aroma, a bit of malt sweetness. Nicely balanced & flavorful IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 I had this tasty little brew at Owen & Engine in Chi-Town. Great nose on this mofo, very citrusy with floral notes. The taste is a combination of bitter meets a refreshing light beer. I Like It.

On tap in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney and floral hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A solid IPA.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy, light Amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange, some pineapple. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bread, pineapple, maybe a little garlic, some pine, with a bitter pine finish that lingers for a while. Tasty.
