Bottle thanks to izzy. Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aromas are fruity, pine with an herbal spiciness. Flavors are bitter and really herbal (aggressive to the point of being abrasive Chinook flavors). Lively and dry.

It pours a hazy light amber with a 1 finger spongy white head that lingers around. As well lots of lacing.
On the nose I am getting mostly floral notes with some malt and some light citrus.
The flavor feels a little watery on the palate. I get some floral notes but not really enough malt of any kind. Usually some nice carmel or light toffee thrown in there evens it out. All the elements are there it just isn’t enough of it.
It finishes with a huge hop bite that really lingers. I find with it being so unbalanced I wouldn’t recommend it.

On tap at The Pub in the Monte Carlo. Mild to low carbonation. Small off white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and somewhat floral, with a hint of chocolate. Taste is some hops with a solid malt backing for a nice balance. Aftertaste is faintly hoppy. Very solid ipa. Wish they would distribute.

Golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Full citrus aroma. Full semi sweet maltiness with a nice hard bitter. Good carbonation from a medium bodied beer. The best beer so far here by far for me.

Bartender said this was to become one of the new regular beers. A light citrus aroma. This is pretty good. A hop bite that grows strongest in the middle. Very yellow in color. This isn’t a mellow IPA but it isn’t wimpy at any point either. Liking it.
