4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and compelxity of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice single hop IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at hideout brewing company. Great color, good aroma, albeit not a strong one. Tastes of fresh hops without a lot of malt getting in the way. I had not tried much of the zythos hop variety, it's a good overall hop. I recommend this beer and brewery if you're ever in the Grand Rapids area.
