Pours very nice amber with lacing head. Very strong grapefruit aroma, maybe some honeydew. This IIPA has a very tart taste with the hoppy resiny goodness. The finish is a little sticky, but clean. Sticky in a good way, HOPS! I really like this beer, glad I found it.

2015 bottle from Wegmans. Hazy dark straw/amber color with two finger off-white head. Fresh citrus apricot passionfruit aroma. Starts malty honey sweet, then hoppy bitterness comes through. Lemon citrus, tropical fruits lingering hop better finish. Very enjoyable. Had to edit this one 30 minutes later; as it warms up it gets better. Going 4.0.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Light citrus in the aroma, some hoppiness, a bit too much malt and caramel for me. Better flavor, nice bitterness, more citrus hop punch with some melon and tropical fruits, dank, resin. Not bad!
