Very nice, bright hoppy taste, smells of citrus and pine needles. Smooth and flavorful, just dances on your tongue, deceptively easy to drink given its higher ABV.

Bottled on 11/6/14. I thoughts this tasted a lot like Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, another one of my favorites. Wonderfully balanced, and easy to drink.

Fresh tasting pale, almost an IPA in flavor. Nice hoppy flavor and a little boozy for 6.2%. I like it.

Bottled 12/05/14, uber fresh.

A- Clarified amber body with some ruby hints when light shows through. The cap forms to about a half inch with a creamy consistency and pretty good retention. One large sheet of thin lace and some spots beside that.

S- What comes to me first is a hint of juicy fruit hops like apricot, tangerine and orange. Rounding the aroma out is caramel malt sweets, toasted cereal grains and pale malts.

T- Hops seem to lose a bit of the steam they carried in the aroma. They become more herbal and citrus forward rather than some of the juiciness. Orange zest first and foremost with notes of caramel sweets, cereal grains, citrus pith bitters and an herbal tone.

MF- A bit above light bodied with the carbonation coming in at a medium-high level. Creaminess comes down on the palate with a silky and frothy overall texture. Finishes light-medium bitter.

Not bad. The aroma had me fairly excited at first but the malts and a fair sweetness combine to distract from the freshness of the hops. Solid but not all that noteworthy.
