Picked up in Ponderay, Idaho. From a 22 oz. brown bomber. Pours out a clear copper hue, with a short loose creamy off-white head.
Dry biscuity malt with a bit of toastiness, sweet orange and peach esters, dry citrus hops.
Tastes to me like some Amarillo hops are doing some legwork in the flavour, right off the top. Dry toasty, biscuity malt officially steps in up front, followed by floral and herbal hops, and finishing with sweet orange citrus hops, and a surprising appearance of some bready, caramel malt. Big win for balance throughout. Aftertaste is dry citrus pith, astringent but clean.
Medium-light mouthfeel, smooth and clean texture, with moderate texture.
Not amazing but still really good, not to downplay its merits, this still delivers the goods. Balanced and rounded, it nearly flies under the radar of the style, but in a tasteful way, a great gateway beer for the style, I know I want more.

Poured into my cheesy, yet refined, spiegelau IPA glass...
Nice off-white fluffy head grows pretty dang fast on top of the clear orange brew. Nice lacing and moderate head retention.
Nice floral pine nose. Lots of apricot, light grapefruit, and dank. Overall, just a touch light.
Hum. Nicely smooth and fluid. Carbonation is even and pronounced without being overdone. Flavors are dank pine, grapefruit, apricot, crisp airy, thin, light, even, dry, earthy bitter bite. Nicely drinkable and quaff-able.
Recommended brew for sure. It's a lighter IPA, even at 7.9%. Definitely an easy drinker. Thanks for the nice present Perry!!
