4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 1 pint bottle into a Treehouse Brewing stemmed glass.
The color is a deep yellow gold with two fingers of pillowy white head and some really nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is fruity with a grapefruit aroma and a juicy fruit gun smell there as well. A leafy/fresh cut grass aroma tickles the nose a bit.
The taste has a sweet juicy citrus flavor that is like biting into a tangerine rubbed with hop resin. A tangy fruit flavor with a sticky bitterness that bites but levels out toward the middle let’s the passion-fruit flavor and ruby red grapefruit flavor come out.
The feel of this beer is lighter then expected for a 7% IPA. The bitterness has a way of growing and a nice smoothness instead of being abrasive. The great drinkable feel of this beer is delightful and packs a whole lot of flavor into this well crafted IPA.

Poured from growler into tulip: Pours hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is heavy on grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is a little sweeter than I expected. This is like drinking a fruit smoothie. Very taste, tons of pineapple and other fruit. Medium body, a little sticky, little sweeter than I would have liked but it’s pretty awesome still.

Sampled at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest. Yellow/gold pour with a white head. As advertised, a ton of citrus on the aroma. Lots of orange/tangerine flavor with sharp, bitter bite. God, can these people make a beer that isn’t outstanding. Wished I lived anywhere near them.
