22 oz bomber crushed with Dadbra. Hazy orange with a nice white head. This just a nicely balanced, fruity, slightly hoppy ipa that drinks like a session. Probably dangerous how easy this is to drink. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grumbler purchase from Breeze-IN, Juneau, AK.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color allowing a fairly decent carbonation to be seen rising throughout the beer.
The smell had a decent amount of bitter citrus hops and a slight grassy note rolling underneath. There are some light sweet malts coming through as it warms.
The taste was mainly sweet through a combination of the citrus hops and grassiness to the malts. However, the bitterness does come back to make a play on my taste buds to add just a touch of itself to the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. I was hoping it would have been more sessionable. I mean the sessionability seemed to be there for the most part but I thought this would have been more.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA worthy of having again but probably not worth the hype that surrounds it.

Bottle. Pours a hazy copperish color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has some really nice and fresh grass and citrus notes to it, making it seem very summery. Taste is moderately bitter, yet manages to be very light and thirst quenching. Really nice summer beer.
