L: Pours hazy orange tinted amber crowned by a 2” clingy white foam cap that slowly recedes. S: Rich hop aromas, grapefruit, malt, citrus. T: It starts malty, bread, biscuit, then fruit, with grapefruit finish. Lingering fruity hop aftertastes. F: Medium to full body, just above medium carbonation, very fine, soft carbonation. O: It’s bottled with an oxygen fixing cap so it tastes and smells fresh.

P: Hazy golden amber with a healthy white head. Lacing is quiet healthy also.
A: Lemon citrus, hoppy, a bit of fresh bread.
T: Lemony citrus, hops, fresh bread, some malts
M: Medium body, clean, crisp with a slight but of bitterness.
O: Not a bad IPA but I think I've had better from Rouge. None the less, I'll try it again.

Pours a hazed & effervescent amber with a thumb of pearl colored head. Never totally clears, but has stellar lacing & great head retention

S: Biscuttty malt, grapefruit, lemons & floral hops, a little bit of leafy hops as well

T: Follows the nose, some dryness & mineral hops as well. A little pineapple sneaks in as this warms, orange peel as well. Finishes with a little bit of biscuitty malt, floral hops & a nice amount of citrus hop kiss

MF: Medium body, light carbonation, lovely balance, perhaps a bit gritty

Drinks super easy, bought this 2+weeks ago & forgot about it; kicking myself, as I'm sure this was even better, maybe slightly off style, but in a good way...

Not been a huge booster of these guys over the last 5 years, but they are starting to win me back

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a patch of bubbles in the center, and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops.
T: The taste has dank flavors of citrusy hops along with a moderate amount of associated bitterness; both of these linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has a good balance between the malts and hops.
