Golden amber pour, with a fluffy white head. aroma is juicy hops, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, GOD I LOVE CITRA HOPS. And Ithaca knows how to do it. Flavor is bright, fresh, more zest, creamy mouthfeel, lovely orange peel, pineapple juice, some tight, sweet maltiness as well, with only a hint of alcohol. Really, really delightful.

Tap @ pacific standard. Pouts a golden tan color with thin head. Smells of lemon, citrus and pine. Tastes of hops, honey and pine. Almost like a double ipa rather then an american strong. Very enjoyable nonetheless. Id have it again

750 ml from Decicco Ardsley. Hazy orange with head and lace. Very citrus hop sweet lemon pastry aroma. Tangy fruity orange sweetness with fairly dry fruity medium bitter mouthcoating finish. Nice balanced palate, assertive but without a bite. Very good. I’m still not a big DIPA fan.
