Served on tap at the pub and brewery in beautuful Pacific City. From notes.
A- A short foamy white head atop a light tangerene orange body of ale. Tails of hop oils dangle enticingly. Quite light around the edges, almost golden.
S- Very sweet nose. Fruity, very perfumy, almost too much so. Unique.
T- Hops and booze all the way, but balances as she goes. Bitterness is dialed in to perfection, ever present, strong of hand but smooth of persuasion. The alcohol makes itself known throughout but its not offensive. A good reminder to take it easy lest you imbibe too much.
M- Very light body, light carbonation, just enough to pull some bitterness off the tongue for a very clean finish.
O- Excellent choice for a hophead, but abv keeps you to one or two at most.
Serving type: on-tap

Glass: Nonic pint glass
Appearance: a clear dark yellow with a large rocky white lasting head.
Aroma: a citrusy hop aroma.
Taste: was light sweetness at first with orange citrus notes and the finish was a moderate to heavy hops bitterness.
Mouthfeel: comes into the mouth light and thin and almost seems to thicken while it sits on the tongue. carbonation was pretty average.
A good IPA, I really enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel, although I felt the aroma was lacking.
