Notes/Commercial Description:
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

3.65/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a fairly clear copper with frothy cream head that lingers.

Resin, fresh cut grass, pine, lemon, tropical fruit, and a hint of onion form the aroma, with an underlying toasted bread character providing slight contrast.

Flavor is more resiny, grassy, and bitter than anything initially. Underpinnings of grapefruit and lemon provide brief respite, but the bittering hops win out in the end. The bready malt backbone serves as a transition point. Herbal, tea-like hop notes surface in the aftertaste.

Body is moderate to a touch light, with a fairly harsh finish from the bittering hops.

Good initial hop citrus character, and well balanced malt, but the bittering hops are harsh, and overwhelm too much for my liking.

Served from Bottle into Nordic Pint Glass

A - Hazy orange with a medium head that fades slowly leaving sticky lacing all the way down. Great looking beer.

S - Citrus, Tropical Fruit finishing with hints of caramel and pine.

T - Sweet tropical/floral hop hit fading to pear and leaving a piny earthy bitterness. Very well balanced.

M - Aftertaste does not last for long meaning you want more! Medium carbonation but very smooth and refreshing.

Great beer.
