4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from DeLaurenti, Seattle
Hazy pale blond color. It has an impressive hop aroma: piney, hempy, musky and citrusy. Dry and lean mouthfeel, the malt flavor is light but present, strong bitterness with a resiny and citrusy character.
Definitively a go-to sIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Yard House, Houston. It pours a clear golden body and a minimal sized white head. The aroma is on the hoppy side, with lots of pine cones and a solid shot of peaches. Some grass and pale malts. There’s a nice bitterness in the mouth, with the same piney and lightly peachy touch. It’s dry and more or less full bodied and with a nice carbonation. Lasting bitter and fruity finish. A quenching and tasteful session IPA. Just like they should be. 140513

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury - picked up at De Cicco, Armonk. Pours crystal clear yellow-gold with a nice, frothy white head. God damn, this beer smells outrageously good. Just bursting with fresh, juicy citrus and dank piss. Light sweet flavor with minimal bitterness and a hop character that absolutely sings. Lots of pithy, clean grapefruit, some cat pee, just enough pale malt sugars to support the hops. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super clean and fresh to finish, lightly crisp, with hints of oily resins, more pithy grapefruit, mild lemon amd tangerine, pee, some vague pine needles. Stunning. I could drink a lot of this beer.
