Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate pine and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA.

GABF 2012. Yellow. Bright hop aroma with a fresh hop aroma, like a wet-hop ipa, with a floral character. One of the better IPAs I had at GABF.

12oz bottle in a stemless bulb. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of floral and citrusy hops plus light orange and a nice caramel/pale maltiness. Flavor really good with a nice citrus component. Average texture. A good beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is a nice light malt with a bit of citrus and a big punch of Zythos bitterness and grassiness. Flavor is similar with citrus up front and a big hop punch. The finish is somewhat abrasive, but the initial flavor is nice. Medium in body and interesting at first.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a lightly hazed pale gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma is oranges and grass with some green onion and light florals. The flavor is the same. The orange is thankfully kept to a minimum with more dank onion and grass. A decent amount of citrus bitterness with hints of orange sweetness. Very flavorful for a low gravity lager. A bit messy, but interesting.

Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of orange on the nose. There’s a hint of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but nothing spectacular.
