4.15/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Orange amber pour with medium white head, some lacing down the glass. Smell is very nice. Quite floral up front giving way to citrus scents. Mostly I get grapefruit and big bright orange citrus. A touch of caramel malt in there as well. Taste doesn't bring the floral touch but is still spot on and pretty delicious. Citrus hops dominate, very fresh and crisp on the tongue. Light caramel malt and a light biscuity touch as well, though the hops do win easily in this IPA. Lightly creamy in the mouth but quickly slapped down by a big hop bitterness that finishes with a lingering dryness and tingle on the tongue. This is a nice brew that I can enjoy a couple pints of. Not the most drinkable in the world but still quite enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap

3.39/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Consumed on December 30th, 2013 at the brewery. Menu notes 6.9% ABV.

Appearance: slightly cloudy medium orange/yellow. Fine white head.

Citrusy, resiny aroma.

Flavor is surprisingly sweet: malty with orange notes. The big hop flavor promised by the nose is muted.

Some carbonation tingle. Mouthfeel is slightly thin.

Not especially memorable.

Serving type: on-tap

4.09/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours dark amber in color with a slight orange hue. Thin half finger white frothy head that has good retention.

Smell is surprisingly malty in a good way. Malt is grainy with notes of honey and caramel and is followed by a nice moderate herbal hop presence.

Taste is really nice some floral hop flavor are forward. Malt follows and has bold grainy flavors along with a nice honey like sweetness and more floral residual hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good light and crisp. Very drinkable and medium bitterness and a light stickiness.

Serving type: growler
