Pours a cloudy orange with a white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of sweet honey malt, some biscuit, mixing with grapefruit, pine and Simcoe hop-like character along with other subtle floral characteristics.
Taste is bready cracker mixed with grapefruit, pine, lighter fruit that goes into a slightly bitter middle a floral and pine finish. There are stone fruit notes here, not so much tropical fruit. Really great flavor. It balances an interesting malt and hop profile while still being extremely drinkable.
Lighter to medium body with medium to higher carbonation works really well.
Fantastic and unique IPA that has a bready/cracker sweet malt body with a huge pine, grapefruit, stone fruit hop character.
