Draft sample at Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy light straw color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma of pungent citrus fruit, bready malts, and grapefruit zest. Taste isn't as nice as the aroma. Light citrus fruit, bitter grapefruit skins, grass, bread, and a bit of pine.

Pours transparent gold. Tastes almost exactly like a lot of the trendy session IPAs lately -- not quite as good as Founders All Day, but much better than Boulevard’s Pop Up.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ The Ale house. Orange gold in color with a lasting cap of white head with lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and a steady amount of floral hops.
The flavor really opened my eyes more than I would have guessed. Lighter to medium body with a mild carbonation leaving a smooth mouthfeel. Grain in the main base of the body with lingering grass, pine resin and a light flower kick. Nice amount of flavor and can easily lead to more. They hit the target with this one!

Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that met my expectations.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
shimmering gold, wispy oil head, no lacing. Dusty pretzel nose, light floral, bit of orange sweetness but contained. More mango and oil through front, light dusty hay, finishing slick, dry and balanced. Not expressive enough but few flaws.

Enjoying from growler poured in a pint. Incredible tasting IPA without the overpowering hoppiness. Carbonation makes it dance on your tongue. Almost a mix between the drinkability of a kolsch and the flavor of a traditional IPA.
