corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange color with apricot edges and visible carb bubbling up. Two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Earthy floral hop aroma with subtle dank resins and tropical fruit notes countered by pale malt sweetness. Some grassy pine needle followed by strong melon and pineapple sweetness. Underneath, there’s some bread, biscuit, cracker and subtle light fruit. Lighter end of medium body with a blast of dank, sticky bitterness that lingers over the sweeter hop notes and pale malts into a bone dry finish. Dank resins with crisp, dry bitterness that lingers throughout. Sticky pine needle and spruce tip followed by prominent melon sweetness and subtle tropical fruit. Morale malt backbone than expected with bread, biscuit and cracker. Well balanced and easy to drink with decent hop flavors.

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is vanilla, grapefruit, oranges, pepper, floral, and a light herbal note. It pours a light caramel brown / yellow body topped by a soft, foamy white head. The head retains quite well, with a thick surface remaining throughout, and it leaves a light, runny, mostly clean lace. The taste is a subtle, but medium-high bitter, and a more prevalent medium sweetness. The beer has an oily slick texture with a creamy carbonation and a medium body (fairly malty for an IPA). It finishes with pepper, caramel, and citrus along with some resin and burnt toast coming in later. The caramel, fruit, and burnt toast linger, but are mellow.
