Bottle. Orange/grapefruit malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet tangy orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Good - like that it isn’t as sweet as the average IPA.

Bottle to half-pint glass (thanks cards04). Looks solid; a hazy paler burnt orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel and bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a bit of toast as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Not bad, but an old school IPA.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ Tasting ][ ][ Snifter ][ 11.09.14 ]
Hazy gold, thin wispy white collar. Light honey grapefruit nose, highly dusty, bitterness heavy with low sweetness. Stinging honey flavor, orange up front considerable pine mid, tons of fruit sweetness, low booze and decent carbonation to support. Stinging papery end, booze finally showing. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours light copper with a thick but short lived white head. Floral and citrusy aroma advertise the burst of hoppy bitterness at the first sip. The flavour is well orchestrated but the aftertaste lingers into astringent instead of the citrus I expected. The aftertaste mellows as the beer warms up, but surprisingly a good deal of its flavour also fades.

I love the combination of citrus and bitter flavours in this beer! With a nice zippy level of carbonation this is a great refreshing beer for a hot day, and I could see it pairing well with grilled seafood, or perhaps lime tortilla chips and fresh guacamole.
