On tap at Cabo Fish Taco

A- hazy amber-orange color with a creamy white head that retains long after the pour and leaves great lacing down the entire glass

S- grassy and citrus hop notes, grapefruit, slightly sweet malt and fresh mint on the finish

T- juicy citrus hop with notes if grapefruit zest and mint, sweet sugary malt, danky citrus hop finish that is dry-yet-tart with a long linger.

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel leads to a smooth and velvety finish

O- huge citrus flavors make this one an enjoyable IPA. Citrus-forward ipa's are my favorite of the style and this one doesn't dissapoint. The tapped version seems to have a bit more pronounced flavor than the bottled version, I'd definitely try this one again

Picked up a bomber in South Carolina at a gas station...

A very solid IPA, nothing spectacular, but defnitley enjoyable. Pretty generic citrus notes in the nose, a little more subtle than I would prefer, very carmelly as well. A little more malt character than I like but relatively balanced. Give it a try, it may have been an old bottle. Cheers!

Big thanks to 67couple for unexpectedly sending this my way! Poured from a 22oz. bomber into my 7venth Sun tulip.

A - A great orange color, with a range from darker amber tones to toasted yellow. Lots of floaties congregate in the bottom immediately. A nice fluffy two-fingers of froth leaves sheets of lacing as I drink.

S - Nice gratefruit aromas instantly, with juicy fruits abounding. There's also a detectable malt presence, and a bit of a bready quality. Some earthy bitterness as well.

T - A melange of citrus to start, with some grassy hop bitterness as well. Caramelly malt and toast are at the transition point, with a finish of lingering bitterness that invites more tastes.

M - Rather dry after the swallow, but some good carbonation and a pleasantly light bodied brew.

O - A nicely balanced IPA, that is very refreshing at the moment. A very pleasant drinker that is not by any means intense or overwhelming with bitterness. Thanks Jon!
