12.oz bottle poured to tulip. Man-o-man this is such a go to for the IPA lover! This dream pours a light hazy orange and has a thin white quickly dissipating head. The aroma is where the awesomeness of this IPA first shows itself. Itís a fresh hop assault! From barnyard earthiness to pineapple, guava, mango, grapefruit, tangerine and bubblegum..itís in there! There is a whiff of cracker like malt..but this is about the hops! Floral and juicy, fresh citrus and that inherent grounding earthiness. This not a palate wrecker but rather a showcase of hop profiles.
The bitterness is invigorating in play with all of the hop flavors and the subtle malt sweetness. I rave. The carbonation is light and this really is dangerously smooth. This is an accessible and expertly made beer. Enjoy and keep this in your rotation!

Backlog from lost notes notes: Aroma of dank hops, grass and compost (?) Taste is fruity, resiny, a little malty with toffee. Good sweetness. Godd stuff!

Draft at Thunder and Buttons. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, nutty malt, dry citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, resin, citrus hops, and nutty malt.

Beer improves with warming. Iím a fan of the more balanced brews and while the aroma here is suggestive of that, the rest doesnít quite follow through. Flavor leans bitter and finish continues with that. Very easy drinking brew. Iím looking forward to more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PreFunk. Seems tame after a IIPA, but straight forward. Hops not as big as expected, subdued. More resinous than citrus, but nicely blended overall. A bit maltier, but not too much bigger than an APA. I would consider this a good gateway IPA, but not rated as highly as represented here.

Golden yellow, resembling a pilsner in appearance. Piney and herbal aroma. Crisp and refreshing, not a hop bomb but definitely a great beer.
