Draft at the Pike Street. Matrix hops FTW. Pours a hazy dark gold with bright edges. Scant white head, tons of nucleation columns. Bright tangy citrus from the super acidic oily hop load. Oranges and tangerines--sweet and clear aromatics that just frickin pop. Creamy medium body with carb that’s borderline fizzy. Bright and refreshing at every turn here. Toasty, slightly nutty malt backbone holding a shimmering tart of citrus fruit. This is a great hop and this is a great little IPA. Shoulda ordered pints of my own. Moocher.
Great nose of citrus tropically fruity toast and dough. Bright. Juicy. Pours hazy golden amber nice creamy head and lace. Bright citrus and tropical fruity chewy citrus pithy toast ans dougg a little pale malt sweetness. Lingering chewy fruity hops. Super easy to drink fucking refreshing. Boom!
