BOD 5/5/14. Almost clear golden pour with an amber note. Very good head, lacing and retention. The nose is mostly tropical, although there are hints of grapefruit, over a biscuit sweetness. Heavy light body with only a hint of smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. Very nice balanced flavor profile with a complex mix of hop flavors, moderate bittering and subtle sweetness. It begins with the tropicals, flows to mild grapefruit rind bitterness and a light biscuit sweetness is noted underneath. The finish leaves you with a pleasant rind like bitterness. An outstanding flavorful session IPA.

Poured a golden color with just a hint of rust color. The hop smell is very subtle and the taste is citrusy to begin with the malt coming in later and a surprisingly nice bitter finish. The mouth feel and carbonation are excellent. For a session type beer this one packs a lot of flavor without a mind numbing ABV level.

I got this as part of a sample pack and hope that it goes into regular production.

Pours out a light orange-amber. Nose is mild: citrus hop and toasted malt. Tastes like SNPA Jr. Caramel malts with a light touch of toast. Citrus rind/oil hops. Dry and clean finish. Mildly seltzer-like. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Delicious. Reminds me of Torpedo/SNPA but lighter.
