Draught and cans since debut, most recently at Middle East Upstairs on 5/11/16.
Deep copper-golden beer is clear with a big white head showing modest retention.
Light pine, caramel, sourdough and grapefruit show a pretty straightforward, west coast IPA but the aromatics are strong for its size. Clean, with some grassiness and pepperiness.
Moderately sweet, with caramel, pine and grapefruit all mirroring the aroma. Gets almost too bitter but then relents, leaving honey in its place to slowly return to balance. Brief interludes of juicy pineapple but mostly lots of grapefruit, grass and pepper. Strong carbonation with a malty texture and no alcohol or flaw. Quite intense for its size.

Pint at Stoddards. Waiting for the BCS to flow, taking it easy now. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is mango and grapefruit. Flavor follows. A little sweet and a little thin, flavors of mango and citrus. For what I want right now, this works.

It had a decent hop nose, but the hop flavors were light and it was a bit too watery for me.

355ml can at home. Somewhat pale orange with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Well balanced fruity sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, pine and some spices. A tasty and refreshing session IPA.
