12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, slight pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, tangerine, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and minimal astringent bitterness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity of hop flavor with a moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really nice IPA, well-balanced and delicious. The beer poured a bright and clear dark yellow color. The head was a bit off-white and left some nice lacing around the glass. The nose was bright and crisp, featuring a lot of spicy and dry hops, with some floral and yeasty notes. The body was really well-balanced, delicious and extremely easy-drinking. The pint was gone before I knew it! The flavors were crisp, spicy and dry, with plenty of hops, just enough malt for balance and some pine and grapefruit notes. The beer finished spicy and dry.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark gold pour with a soft off-white foam. Looks nice. Strong citra hop flavors - floral and citrus - but balanced with some earthier hop flavors. More rounded than the one hop citra brews I have had. Grapefruit pith. Lime zest. Tangelo pips. Sage. Juniper. Parsley. Dry but has some light malty caramel notes. Finishes a bit harsh, but is very well constructed.
