pours a golden orange - very transparent in the glass. thin, but frothy head. strong aromas of grapefruit, grass and trees. light-medium mouthfeel; taste is strong citrus with hints of hay and spruce. finish is heavy grapefruit. VERY smooth for such a flavorful beer. Another excellent offering from Mr. Adams.

Draft: Strong rosehip and grass nose, orange peel also present. Crystal clear amber, thin head. Full body, immensely floral. Potpouuri, rosehips. Marigold and lilly finish. Traces of melon also present. I love the hop selection in this and skullfully crafted.

Pours to a gold, almost brown color. leaves a medium-ish, off white colored head, leaves medium sud lines. The aroma is of floral, citrus and pine. Tastes of citrus/pine, leaving a strong lingering citrus aftertaste. I would absolutely have again. Hope they continue it and its not just a seasonal brew!!

Draught. I really like this IPA. Citrus and Pine are apparent. Very low alcohol taste. Easy to drink and light enough for a go-to all night. Really like the after-taste.

Great IPA. Well balanced. Hops are there, but kind of mild. There are pale ales with more hop flavor, but this seems to have a distinct IPA flavor. Malt is not heavy. A real easy drinking beer for 6.5% ABV.

Love this on tap at my local pub. In the bottle it loses something as do most IPA’s compared to tap, but still very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden-amber pour with a firm but relatively thin head of white. There’s a hint of a Teutonic edge on this, reminding me more of hoppy European pilsners more than a West Coast IPA. But this definitely drinks with a meatier body than any pils. But this still carries like a lager IMHO, more than an AIPA. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink several of these. Quite good.
