Handsome yellow color with plenty of foam in the New Belgium snifter. Sudsy mouthfeel with loads of carbonation.

Weedy, dank, and herbal. Not overly bitter, but plenty of the resiny stuff. LIght body, fizzy, and fresh tasting. Some slight maltiness with a bitter tang for the finish.

This is the lighter version of the dank IPA. A decent quaff. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Victoria Market in San Clemente.

Hazy golden, nice sturdy finger and a half white head, slowly subsiding.
Big grapefruit on the nose, some tangerine, some pineapple, pine, mild floral notes and a really light candy sweet maltiness.
Bitter citrus up front, lots of orange and lemon peel, with quite some grassy hops early on. Big herbal notes, a bit funky actually, floral, with a nice bloomed hop cone note, i'd say. Malts are pretty hidden, a bit of honeyed grain maybe. Finishes with green leafy hops and pine, with a bit of dankness, really bitter actually.
Aftertaste has spicy (really prickling) hop, grapefruit peel, pine. Medium body and carbonation.
A straight-forward, but really fresh (intoxicatingly so) feeling IPA. Green, bitter, refreshing, what else to ask for?!

Tastes pretty hoppy but the hops have an off putting taste to it. Also tastes like there is bittness from a grapefruit in there. Very citrusy. Alright
