3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-Tap @ Lucky Lab Beer Hall poured into Shaker glass.
Pours a slightly murky orange-amber color with a finger of white fizzy head that eventually leaves a nice ring around the glass and allows for nice heavy lacing as this beer is drank. The aroma is bitter orange peel, grapefruit and some touches of malt. The flavor is citrus peel bitterness upfront and follows with some grain and more hop bitterness on the end. Its medium bodied and is nice and crisp. Very enjoybale IPA, I really cannot say one thing bad about it. Exactly what I was looking for when I ordered it.

Tap @ their NW spot... Poured reddish/amber with a white head. Floral hops on the nose with a leafy sweetness. Nice dry, highly carbonated palate that was refreshing. Lots of hop flavors with buttery malted grains for balancing. Citrus fruit in the finish.

Orange amber pour with a thin lasting bubbly head. The aroma is of caramel, biscuits and grapefruit. Lots of grapefruit in the flavor moves to a light floral hop profile and a moderate caramel malt sweetness. Bitterness level is medium. Very drinkable well put together IPA.

Delicious for a pale ale, perfectly hoppy and with a very respectful ABV. Goes really well with their cookies.
