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.

3.76/5 rDev -0.5%

A: deep gold ale, just short of clear; a few fingers of tan foam; moderate lacing down the glass
S: melding of grapefruit pith and pine resin, with some moments suggestive of wood and herbs and grasses
T: malt base presents nice fresh grains, subduing the hops from coming off too strong, and rounding off the beer's bitterness
M: medium-to-light body, some soft carbonation on the tongue, bittering effect starts off mellow but closes down dry and blunt
O: a nice IPA, with a fairly typical hop and malt profile, well-made if not earth-shattering; certainly worth the buy and try, but not likely to displace any of the bigger names out there
