A-Pours a clear orange with a very thin head. Some light chill haze. Decent amounts of lacing too.
S-Sweet clementiney citrus hops. A bit spicy in its hoppiness too. Piney to a certain extent. Lighter graininess with a breaded malty core. I don't love the nose but it is fairly decent.
T-It has an add tangyness to it. Kinda medicinal and earthy. Bitter flower stems. The hop profile is unique but I don't think I am too enamored with it. It does grow on you, though. Sweetness is noticeable and it blends with the hoppiness to create a unified flavor.
M-Moderate bitterness with a medium body. Good carbonation. A bit sticky or chewy.
O/D-A bit disappointing. Their DIPA is a stud; while this isn't a dud, I know Captain Lawrence could do considerably better work.

Pours a lovely light orange/amber into my snifter. A prodigious light yellow/white head that leaves a light covering after a slow fade. Lot of lace and light carbonation visible through the mildly cloudy liquid. Nose has lots of bready light sweet malt, citrus and and orange grove. A touch of fusel alcohol sweetness. Light amounts of caramel too. Taste is bang on good. Malt front is quickly folded into a hop showcase that start with a touch of earth and blooms into a bright citrus cascade. Toasted grains give a nice counter to the plentiful hops. Some resiny oil in the clean but slightly long finish that mixes with a bit of light toast and caramel. Medium light crisp feel makes this a delightful thirst quencher with a mild tingly carbonation. A great summer slaker and glorious take on one the classic American styles. While on the strong side for seasoning it seems to fit the bill anyway and will be on my short list for grill day beers.
