Nice citrus skin, grapefruit and white pepper on the nose. Pale malts, a little grain, and a touch of caramel. Pours golden amber, nice head and lace. The flavor has a good dose of grapefruit and white pepper to start followed by pale malts sweetness, a litle grain, and some light caramel sweetness. Nice lasting citrusy hop bite. A nice IPA with great drinkability and good hop flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Light hops aroma with a nice malt backing. The citrus hops flavor comes out nicely with a good bitter finish. The malt has a roast bready flavor. This is a very nice IPA and I look forward in watching these guys grow. Lots of passion with this brewery.
