On tap at the brewery. Amber/gold with a nice puffy head. Good lacing. Hop aromas are mostly dank and resinous, but some citrus was detected. Tasted resinous and piney. Big malt backbone balances things out well. This is pretty much everything I want in an IPA. Great beer.

The highlight of my trip to Agora. I loved this beer. Even moreso than the much more highly acclaimed Cheseboro, which i also reviewed.
Beautifully layered hoppiness that started bitter and ended surprisingly sweet. I’m glad I drank this before the DIPA, as that was a palate killer, and it liekly would have left me unable to enjoy this beauty.

Nose is fairly subtle - some pine notes from the hops, slightly floral, faint sweetness. Pours mostly clear, golden color with a white head, average retention. Firm bitterness, hops come through with pine and hints of grapefruit, bitter and slightly metallic finish. Medium body and carbonation.

From growler at beer party in LA. Amber, bright, with scant lace. A mellow hop aroma is bright and floral, with a slight bit of pedio hanging around. Has an English character. Lingering floral hop finish. Nice and quaffable.

A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a finger or so of white head.
S: Actually not a bad hop nose to this. Nice citrus notes, a touch of sweet fruit, and some hints of pine. A nice mix of grapefruit and pineapple. Maybe a little bit on the sweet side, but very nice overall.
T: Flavor has a very bright, fresh grapefruit flavor that is just great. Tons of citrus, a bit of lemon peel, and a very light pineapple juice flavor. Not much in the way of malt, surprisingly. Just a bit of pine bitterness.
M: On the light side of medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: Damn, was not expecting such a good beer from these guys. Really nice.
