Enjoyed on-tap at the Tops Tasting Room. A very good drinking IPA. High carbonation, but the bitterness is right there. Above average mouthfeel. Medium yellow with lts of head that leaves it lacey.Hoppy aroma.

Bottle. Pours clear medium gold with a one finger white head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is malt and light citrus hops. The taste is sweet citrus, caramel and light tart grapefruit that doesn’t linger for long. Medium bodied. Decent beer, comes off more like an American Pale though.

From a 12 oz bottle. Gold color with light orange tint. Aroma is nice hops. Good carbonation. Nice crisp hop taste with some sweetness. Not much of a hop bite which was somewhat disappointing but overall a decent IPA.

Nice hoppy aroma. Bit of sweetness. Well balanced. Simcoe is there but not intense. New session beer. This is what I can keep for my wife in the fridge when she doesn’t want the sour I am opening.

Aroma: Sweet, piny, and bubbly...yes, bubbly.

I would do it again. But price per enjoyment, I would rather grab some Long Hammer or Sierra Nevada.
