On tap at Churchill’s. Clear golden pour with a white head. Citrus hop bouquet. Citrus and orange zest hop highlights. Well balanced with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Plenty of Mosaic hops here. The wheat adds some creaminess. Good body and mouthfeel. I dig it.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with apricot edges and a two finger pillowy white head. Great retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap/ring. Soapy lacing left behind. Floral, resinous hop aroma with a slight onion-y/summit presence along with earthy grass and tropical/citrus fruit. Pine needle character with biscuit malt, slight caramel, mango, pineapple and orange peel. Medium bodied with a crisp, oily resinous hop bite that lingers over the tropical fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a slightly dry finish. Crisp, clean and easy to drink with bitter, grassy hops followed by grapefruit, orange peel and papaya sweetness. Really well balanced with fruit and light malt notes countering the earthy bitterness of the hops. Really drinkable with an invisible ABV. Very nice!

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Draft at Hollingsehead. Pours a rich and clear golden with small head, which says something at Hollingshead. Aroma is light danky pineapple hops with some other citrus elements. Taste is very bitter and dank. Really surprised and liking that as I haven’t gotten a really dank IPA in a while. Very nice overall.
