It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was orange peel, caramel and grass with a touch of spice. The taste was grapefruit, bitter lemon and light toffee. Very tasty.

Bottle. I could tell this was a good IPA just based on how it looked pouring out the bottle. Great floral hops aroma, just the right bitterness for an IPA, flavorful finish. I look forward to having another one.

Pint from the brewery. Pours a golden apple juice color with a fluffy white head that lasts throughout the pint and laces well. This beer has a sweet, floral nose that has notes of apples and lemon. This is a medium bodied IPA with a tangy, sweet hop flavor that is clean and not too bitter. The malts provide a hint of sourdough bread. This is a really solid beer; easier to put down than most IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours golden with white head. The aroma is piney and orange citrus. Taste wise it is more on the piney bite side with a citrus zest and smooth sweet grain. Enjoyable overall but a bit bitter and rough on the piney side compared to a lot of ipa’s.

Bottled, shared with multiple others at brew club. Thanks to Don. Pours a lasting white hed, ovre a clear amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is pine, citrus, grapefruit peel...taste is pine, citrus, mild toffee/caramel, finishing with a moderate lingering bitterness.....mouth feel medium, carbonation high adding spritz. This is a quite typical IPA, it is a bit light on the malt backbone. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

Thanks to yoruefragile for sharing this one. Served in a Fantome tulip. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate orange color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward some orange, citrus, and tropical fruits and a light malt presence. The flavor is about the same with the fruit coming forward and malt in the background. Medium body with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Pretty tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a hazy golden color similar to a wheat beer. Head is decent with a thick pillowy top. Aroma is very strong american hops with tangy citrus and floral notes. Taste is great, notes of lemon and grapefruit up front. Also pine and resin bringing a very pleasant bitterness to the finish. A great IPA with lots of drinkability yet still very assertive on the palate.
