Pale straw gold. Mild citrus and grass hop flavor. Med to low bitterness for a west coast ipa. Organic ingredients may be a factor. Would reach for and recommend other ipa’s first.

900 yen bottle.6.6% beautiful orange pour. A nice floral/herbal hop aroma wafts from the glass-nice! I get citrus, pine, grapefruit balanced with a good dose of caramel from the malts. It really hits the spot! The finish is dry with a lingering bitterness. A really good beer.

On tap at Local Public Eatery in #yeg. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours golden orange with a small foamy head that lingers nicely and leaves some oily webbing. Aroma is a nice citrus hop bomb with a hint of caramel. Taste is oranges and grapefruit mostly. Slightly sweet with a fairly strong bitter finish. Medium body, a little oiliness. Really enjoyable IPA. I slammed this one pretty quick.
