On draft at Tap 25. It pours a light gold/yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very grapefruity with some herbals and tropical fruit. The flavor is the same. Citrus and florals with a bit of bready malt in the background. Pretty decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass. Color was caramel paleish. About a finger of head. Gray lacing on the top with a very small gap near the sides. Film was frothy on the sides, pretty even.
Smelled pretty balanced initially. I got citrus hops with tangerine seeming to lead the way with some lemon in there, too. Also some nice sweet floral notes. Once again, very balanced smell.
Tasted pretty similar to the nose with the impressive balance of hops and floral notes. Citrus hops, grapefruit mainly, coming in there.
Light body. Thin, oily texture. Average carbonation. Smooth finish.
A pretty good beer overall. I can’t get over how balanced this beer was.

Bottle: Cloudy copper color with a white head and semi-sticky lacing. Fresh, green hop aroma with piney notes. Good, solid IPA as far as flavor - a bit musty, grassy and full of flavor. Pretty nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Pours copper with a small head. The aroma is caramel, orange rinds, and some earthy notes. The flavor is pleasantly bitter, with a good malt backbone. The palate is light to medium and uneventful. This is a good IPA, but doesn’t really stand out.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with medium khaki head. Aroma is a bit mild of pine, crystal malt, and orange peel. Flavor is heavy of orange peel backed by pine. Lots of bitter citrus rind. Fairly solid IPA.
