Pours a deep orangeish amber with a soapy white head. Very pleasing citrus aroma of orange and grapefruit along with a bit of alcohol. In the taste, more citrus and caramel notes. Grapefruit rind and ample bitterness. Well rounded ipa flavors of citrus and pine. Medium to full bodied ale, bitters and citrus in the finish. Overall, a solid drinkable hop-forward brew I would certainly have again.

A beautiful pour into a tulip glass. A rusty, murky orange, with a khaki head and prodigious lacing.

Oh, my, what a sweet aroma. Ripe navel orange and bubblegum. Some malt stiffening the piney twinge.

The flavor in the mouth doesn't follow the aroma. There's almost no sweetness. It's a pleasing bitterness, both citric and floral. Finishes dry and clean. But disappointing that there's none of the juicy sweetness or malt promised in the aroma.

Smooth on the palate, with moderate carbonation that makes it quaffable.
