Drank it on tap at the brewery. A very light IPA, almost watery. The single hop recipe makes it unidimensional.

On tap at RR, this is the Sterling version. Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Aroma is light smooth hop aroma, a little orange. Taste is smooth crisp malt, a little grassy and not spicy or over the top. A very mellow hop variety that makes a unique ipa.

On tap at RR. Bright golden orange color, very little carbonation. Big grassy hop aroma and flavor, hay, light spices, light yeast. Really nice, like how it lets the hops shine without a lot of other stuff getting in the way. Very drinkable, not too much lingering bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one was was on draft at the brewpub with the Sterling hops and listed at 5.80% ABV on the board. I had a draft pour and likec it so well I took home a growler. It poured a nice golden color with a good white head and lots of lacing. Nose is citrus and pine hop odors, so even though there is only one hop variety, this hop has multiple aromas. The mouthfeel was slick and creamy. Flavor is very classic IPA with some bitterness. Shows you don’t have to pack a beer with dozen different hops to make it taste good. Bitter finish. Simply a very drinkable and enjoyable brew.
