Bottle. Lovely pale amber color, with a nice white head. Nose is fresh with grape fruit and malts as the dominant features. Flavor is very nicely balanced. The fruity hops are certainly the dominating force, but they compliment the malty body in a splendid way. All in all a very nice brew (as is usually the case with this brewer).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, hazy orange with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops and grass with orange, grapefruit, yeast and tangerine noticeable. Light caramel malt presence. Taste is fairly dry and very bitter, lingering after finish. All of this is done very well as a hoppy, yet balanced pffering. Excellent lacing through the finish - Cheers to Chico!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber that is more gold at the bottom and more amber up high. Big off-white head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, pine, citrus, and caramel malt. Bitter hop taste with notes of grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, caramel malts, and a little soapiness. Bold and bitter with a bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one gets even hoppier and more bitter as it goes down. Long aftertaste. Strong IPA.
