A: Really clear (week in fridge most likely helped) and light copper in color. Had a really nice white head and retention. S: Really love the aroma on this. At first I got some fruity tropical fruit notes, melon and mango. Then I get some dank pines and notes of freshly cut grass. T: Flavor is a bit faint, but has some melon and pine. Get some bready notes from the malt. M: Good carbonation and a bit light. Fairly dry and crisp like how I love my DIPA’s. O: Another nice beer from Lawson’s. I wouldn’t mind one bit having this beer again.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thin white head that lingers. Hop aroma over mild carbonation. Reasonable hop complexity in a non dipa style ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the early January Farmers market. Kept cold in the fridge. split with my lawson’s loving buddy. Golden orange, off white 2 finger head. Nose is citrus for days. More grapefruit and a touch of clementine. solid mouthfeel. Not an explosive IPA by any means but the taste is in line with the nose. Could easily drink this all by myself.

Boittle thanks to a bro
Pours a hazy gold color with a good head and hie lacing on the glass.

The atom aid a bunch of tropical fruit and citrus rind. It’s fresh and hoppy with some mild floral and alcohol notes.

The flavor has a nice level of bitterness with a lot of fresh hoppiness, some passion fruit and melon being the stars of the show, It’s nicely dry and lightly boozy.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Soft airy malt. Nice hops - fresh orange, orange peel with a little grapefruit and floral sweetness. Turns medium bitter with tropical fruits making an appearance. Finishes light with a long bitter linger. Nicely put together.

Shared by Lunch. Thanks man! The beer is orange with a half inch of white head. The aroma brings some earth and pine notes, followed by light citrus and biscuits. A bit more grainy and malty than expected, but tasty nonetheless. Herbal and grass notes with a dash of floral hops. Solid.
