Aroma: Citrus— grapefruit, orange, tangerine and tropical fruit

Flavor: Hop forward with lots of citrus and tropical fruit flavor balanced by a lightly bitter finish

Sampled at GABF 2017 with Paul and Larry. Pours a golden body with thin white lacing. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with notes of sweet citrus hop, sugar, pine and sweet grass.

jhamp9 (2025) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Hazy orange pour with a fluffy lasting white head. Tons of sticky lacing coats the glass. Strong tangerine aroma with some hints of grass and toffee. Taste is orange candy, grapefruit rind, grass, and faint toffee. Light body. Really nice session IPA, aroma and flavor of a bigger IPA.

bb (9890) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Draft. Hazy amber beer with a cream head. Light grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light orange flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light orange lingers with light lemon.

thegreenrooster (4663) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a big citrus with lots of grapefruit and other various tropical fruit. Flavor is a big juicy citrus with orange peel and some green onion. This is really flavorful and a big citrus juice bomb. This has to be the highest rating I’ve given for a session IPA. The canned on date is 5/18/17 just 2 weeks ago so that is probably helping because this beer is super fresh and juicy.

snoworsummer (6377) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like lemon, grapefruit hops, resin, and cookie and bready malt. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like lemon, orange, grapefruit hops, and cookie malt.

sonnycheeba (6694) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold. Aroma is citrus fruit, pale malt, light toast, and faint floral notes. Flavor is juicy citrus with a solid bitterness level that doesn’t overpower the small grist bill, and a dry, lightly toasted finish. Light body.

BlackHaddock (8073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Pint, from tap on 26th Jan 2017 in Board and Brew, Laguna Niguel, California. Golden amber pour, white head. Citrus leanings in both the nose and taste with oranges being the major flavour in the brew. Decent.

blipp (10102) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Juicy citric hops, moderate bitterness, marmalade, oily orange peel, and light malty sweetness, followed by a nice pithy citric finish. Solid.

BeerandBlues2 (14403) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a medium, tight-bubbled white head, medium retention leaving a thin top layer and excellent lacing. Aroma is grainy and husky malt with orange-citrus hops. Flavor is heavy astringent bitter orange pith hops with light grainy malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Marheb (6341) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
(En fût à la brasserie): Des agrumes s’amusent dans le gazon et répandent leur jus frais. Le corps est moelleux, généreusement protéiné et avec une amertume à la hauteur de l’intensité du flot fruité. Quelque part entre Alpine et Trillium. Hyper satisfaisant.
