4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler filled today. Pours a cloudy, nearly opaque glowing orange with very small white head. Aroma is insanely juicy mango, lychee, candied grapefruit, peach, apricot nectar, cotton candy, light pine. Taste is orange mango passionfruit juice with a hop presence that initially seems to have very low bitterness and then dries out the mouth. Slight booziness in both the aroma and flavor. Creamy texture. In the upper echelon of American IPAs, right up there with the creations of Mr. Hill.

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.
