Cloudy orange/tan pour at Below the radar in Huntsville AL. Smells like strong resin/piney hops mixed half and half with orange citrus. Fairly even blend between hops and malt but malt comes up a little ahead. Bitter and sweet finish with lots more citrus juicy flavor.

Bottle from Tim. All biscuity aromas with a very faint hop whiff. Biscuit and citrus flavors. Overall it?s decent. As it warmed up it became more alcoholic and not drinkable.

What impressed me the most about this beer is how, regardless of other peoples’ evaluations of this beer, it thankfully tastes nothing like fresh grapefruit: rather, it compliments the ingredients so well that it just tastes like a really fresh version of a grapefruity, citrus hop variety. Coupling grapefruit with Cascade was a great idea. Bright in appearance, fresh, refreshing, and actually pretty respectable.

Almost tasted like drinking citrus juice. The beer was was quality beer but maybe a tad to filling and boozy. Labeled as 9% but tasted more like 10 or 11%. If you love citrus hoppy beers this is one to seek out.

Growler from Piggly Wiggly Myrtle Beach. Nice orange color....slight head. I was surprised to see this is an all Cascade beer....I thought it was some funky new hop blend or something. Seems like a big waste of grapefruit because I dont get much of it. It reminds me a lot of Gubna....kind of has a oniony taste to me. This is a big beer and could be called boozy and slightly malty. Really poor aroma. I want my fresh IIPS to have a big flower aroma...this has none.
