3.51/5  rDev +4.8%

Pint on tap at Tuman's, the creamy density of the foam made it seem like a nitro-tap was used. Body was a hazy bright orange, deep saturated color. An inch of foam on top that had a meringue like surface texture.

Aroma was a bit odd, sweet tarts candy, Froot Loops cereal, artificial citric fruitiness.

Flavor was fairly balanced, but again the Pacifica hops contribute the same odd artificial fruit character. There was a good pale malt presence too for balance, the finish was pleasantly bitter and dry. Since the whole point of the beer is to showcase the single hop variety, i've concluded from this that i'm personally not a fan of Persica hops. Will give it another shot in the future if it's free.

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a mostly clear orange, with a quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like pine and grass, but in a strangely muted way.

The taste is similar. Pacifica adds an interesting hop flavor, fairly grassy, with some fruity hop flavors, but it's tempered by some watery-ness. The flavors are just weirdly muted. I don't know if its the Tavern's tap lines, or like I suspect, Pacifica just isn't a good enough hop to isolate on its own for bold IPA flavor.

Light bodied, crisp, slightly fluffy mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable, goes down pretty easy.

This tasted alright, with a few problems.

First had: on tap at City Tap House, Philly, PA

Served in a shaker, a murky golden-orange color, slightly effervescent, with a small ring of white bubbles on top. Light citrus in the nose, crisp, fresh. Taste was crisp and clean, candied orange peel, herbal, green tea, light pale malts. Quite nice overall, but as with other SOLs I've tried, I think this leans more towards an APA than in IPA. Light-medium body, easily drinkable.

Poured from my Growler filled at The Wardell Pub @ the Freebridge Wine and Beer Store in Phillipsburg, NJ

Appearance - Pours a cloudy yellow, burnt yellow with a moderate to full head. A moderate amount of lacing remains.
Smell - Has a pleasant yet not overpowering floral aroma, with a hint of citrus. A moderate aroma for this series, I suspect this is more of a bittering hop then a floral aroma one.

Taste - The taste is moderately hoppy with a very pleasant but slightly subdued taste. This is very highly hopped, but due to the lack of aroma, the taste remains pleasant and bitter, but without a strong overpowering taste.Some piney, resiny and floridness is apparent. This is clearly a buttering hop, with out the strong floral aroma of some of the others in this series. This is a very good IPA, but not a strong floral IPA.

Mouthfeel - A moderate amount of carbonation with a very resiny palette coating. The overall feel is very pleasant without a palette wrecking bitterness.

Overall - I love this series of beers, as it allows for discovery of the nuance in the many hops used. This strikes me as a strong to moderate buttering hop, but without the floral, piney aroma that one would expect from a beer of this bitterness. Limited alcohol is noticeable and it is a very drinkable beer, although I would suspect my palette will need a break after a refill.
