Wonderful aroma of citrus, grapefruit and hops! Cloudy orange in color with a nice hoppy flavor that’s not over done. A really good IPA!

Pours a clear golden yellow from the bomber with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous dank hops, grassy and floral. Taste is even bigger, clean and super hoppy, really nice.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/3/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy eartiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from modest bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fresh hop IPA style. All around great compelxity, robustness, and balanced of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served displaying a clear, medium, orangey gold color, with a fairly persistent & frothy, soft white head, and clingy spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was expressive, citrusy perfume of orange, followed up by grapefruit, subtle malt sweetness, with a bit of resin on the back, and maybe a little tropical scent as mango on re-review. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the flavor was similar notes including a citrus, rind, and slightly resinous bitterness that pleasantly lingered. One of those even tempered, gladly worth repeating IPAs, highlighting somewhat local grown hops in an "anti" recipe. Not related, but loved the movie, and would probably enjoy one of these in hand while watching!

Tmoney99 (13161) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Good looking golden amber color, with a bright white head, big lace streaks. Taste is honey malt that flows effortlessly through the swallow to a fairly big citrus hop finish. The hops are robust, but the malt isn’t forgotten, and remains for a curtain call. Well-balanced and enjoyable.
