On tap at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis, MN. Served in a Surly shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a slightly hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of carbonation. Solid three fingers of white head with decent retention. A decent amount of lacing hangs onto the glass.

Smell: Aroma of bright hops with a nice malt background. Upfront is a scent of citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, peach, lemon, and a little apricot. Also some earthy hops with a hint of pine resin. Good bready malt presence behind the hops with hints of biscuit, caramel, toffee, yeast, and crackers. A nice sharp bitterness in the smell. Pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a bright citrus hop forward taste that is in line with the West Coast IPA style. Big taste of ripe citrus up front with notes of grapefruit, oranges, lemon, mango, apricot, and a little peach. Some earthy pine resin is also in the hop mix. Solid sweet bready background of malts. Notes of lightly toasted bread, caramel, toffee, biscuit, and crackers. Hop forward and fairly bitter, but has a decent balance. A pretty good West Coast taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Fairly juicy and slick with a fairly sharp bitterness. Finishes dry.

Overall: A very good take on the West Coast IPA style. Solid juicy citrus flavor up front with a nice soft bready taste in the background. Quite different than Furious, but very good.

Serving type: on-tap
