Might be my favorite fresh hop ale. Cloudy orange pour, salty bitter with pine and grassy sharpness. Smells of pine. There’s a soapiness that coats the mouth and hangs around. There’s a touch of bitter soda.

Nice cloudy orange color with big head. Aroma is fresh, citrus, grapefruit, floral, resinous. Taste is smooth and bitter. Nice bitterness. A little bit disappointing, though.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is bright pine, a little dank lemon.
The taste is a building dry bitterness beginning to end. Wonderful.
The texture is crisp.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Moriartys. Fuzzy gold pour with a large frothy white head. Several large swaths of lace. Strong resiny grassy citrus floral hops balanced with some medium blonde caramel malts. Green oranges. Apricot pits. Varnish. Pinecones. Oak tannins. Peppercorns. Fresh cut grass. The wet hops are gigantic here! Certainly good, but feels needlessly harsh.

Very nice ipa. Aromas of orange zest, lemon and candy. Beige head, cloudy golden. Some hop resin in taste, citrus, caramel. High carbonation attenuates bitterness but very well balanced with alcohol.
