Pours up a very pretty clear orange, with nice white head, and ample lacing. Aroma is mild caramel and citric hops. Flavor is the same, grapefruit, lightly earthy and a hint of floral. Well done.

Bot. We got to restyle this. From the start its ipa, no bones about it. I thought I smelled some dull hops in there but after the taste nothing else is apparent but its big ipa thud. So bitter, such impact. Terribly on style for an ipa and I think I had impy ipas that had this impact. Vixen viscous thick mouth coating flavors all round, whewwie. Gimmie a cheap lager to rinse my mouth. Cleansing agent please!! Not impressed.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden brown with a medium sized white head. The aroma is all piney hops. The taste matches the aroma with a bitter finish.

Really good pale ale. Soft mouthful with orangey hops that meld perfectly into the malt. Really like this one.

jbruner (4627) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin ring of lacy white head. Aroma of oxidized caramel malt and slight sweet citrus. Taste follows, a bit more toward the hoppy end, oxidation hidden a bit. Unfortunate, because only like 2 months old, but already gone.
