Growler from my awesome mother-in-law. Pours a light clear orange with a small white head. Nose of orange and a bit of grapefruit, with lots of pith. Resiny notes that settle as it warms. Slight tropical notes from the Amarillo hops. Crisp and relatively light for an IPA. Slick palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a finger of soft, cream colored head. Notes of grass, florals, herbs, blood orange, grapefruit zest, and tropical fruits. Light-medium bodied, with a juicy, faintly tart mouthfeel and moderate soft carbonation. Really nice IPA; I liked what the subtle tartness from all the fresh citrus does.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served at the brewpub.
Pour was amber with excellent clarity and a good head.
Lots of hop aroma and flavor, with just mild bitterness. Addition of grapefruit zest seems to affect the aroma but has minimal affect on the flavor.
Exceptional fruity/hoppy aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold with a mostly white head.
The aroma has tart, fresh citrus that is unlike customary hop citrus aromas.
The flavor is grapefruit forward, and again, it isn’t the customary hop grapefruit flavor, but more like actual fruit.
