Tap. Pours hazy gold with average, fizzy white head; decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is heavy grassy and floral hops, lemon and other citrus, bread malt, and light pine. Flavor is balanced malt and hops (light bitterness) with supporting citrus esters; dry finish. Not as hoppy as I expected given the nose. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours cloudy and yellow. Unfiltered IPA? Sign me up. The nose has light tropical notes. The flavor reminded me of Two Hearted with less sweetness and more aggressive hops. Sort of a mix of tropical fruit, pine, and a very light touch of grain. Long bitter finish. Certainly nice enough to get a growler of!
