finger head showed quickly and had some decent staying power. The soapy thickness of the head makes for some decent lacing.
Zesty grapefruit stands up front followed by pine, lemon and orange. The hops are extremely aromatic and they overpower the sweet, caramel smelling malty backbone.
Smooth, sweet hoppy bitters are up front in the mouth and evoke tastes of grapefruit and pine being most prominent. The malty caramel background here is light but contributes well to the sweetness here. Very drinkable for the hop lover.
Thick on the front but some middle of the road carbonation makes the end crisp and refreshing. Keeps bringing me back for more.
Very tasty overall. Well rounded and refreshing. Just a slightly above average IPA and something I could enjoy a few of and a summer evening.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hoppy aroma with subtle malt sweetness. Taste is a lot of bitterness from hops and subtle maltiness on the back end. Hops last long on the palate, but nice!

Hazy amber, low offwhite head
Medium light body, light stickiness, wonderfull green hops though, really pleasant.

Huge bubblegum, citrus, tropical, fruity, pine and hoppy taste. Delicious. Orange pour from 12oz bottle at red door. Sweet and underwhelming aroma. Taste makes it all

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy light golden with some good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity with some hop character but a surprising husky malt thing going on. All together it come across as pretty faint as well.
The flavor is a touch sweet, the hop profile is nice with some good punchy grapefruit and piney hops. The bitterness is at a moderate level but balances the beer appropriately.
Iíve had this before & itís been brilliant, although I never took notes. This batch falls short of my prior experience and expectations Iím afraid.

An absolutely incredible ipa. Hoppy, citrus and grapefruit dominate. Smells hoppy and goes down like butter. Crushable. Just had after a rajah and this may be a better beer. Got from the brewer when visiting arcade brewing.

Cask at taproom. Pours orange with a thin white head. Some dank hop notes on the nose. Has some leafy hoppiness on the tongue. Itís quaffable and finishes clean but itís not spectacular to me.

Opened 6.5 weeks after bottled. Citrus aroma carries through to palate with forward, grapefruit-like hops. Quite a refreshing IPA.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear bright dark amber, frothy white head, messy cobwebs of lace. Taste is solid malt that yields partially to a combination citrus/pine hop presence on the swallow, the bitter dominating, but never able to overcome the malt. The finish becomes sweeter as it fades. A very nice strong IPA.
