Poured on a nitro faucet @ the brewery. Huge hop nose, piney and citrus. Pours white and settles blonde with a dense white head. Smooth mouthfeel, love the nitro pour, the poor mans cask ale. Good citrus hops with pine resins, good malt backbone. Solid IPA.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty awesome beer here. Has enough hop aroma/flavor to be in the double category, but not quite enough alcohol. Hop aroma is more of a sweet fruit, but tons of citrus as well. Love it.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy golden, airy head. Massive aroma of of sweaty lychees. The malt sweetness is dried out by massive amounts of hops. Chewy malt fight an uphill battle against the onslaught of aromatic, juicy piney hops. Really bitter finish. Seemless and fresh, very American in style.
