Slightly hazy orange-gold body, topped by four fingers of snow white bubbles of all sizes. Thick lacing.

Big citrus aroma, plenty of orange among a host of other fruits.

Strong sturdy semi-sweet malt foundation. Big burst of juicy fruits. Orange, maybe some mango. Sudden bitter snap at the swallow. Fruity finish.

Smooth medium mouthfeel.

A very nicely done IPA, with a quick distribution to PA, adding some extra freshness.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is gold to copper, head is brighter, frothy white, great lacing and webbing on the glass, presents dense but dissipates to a rings and bubbles.

Smell is a great mix of hop citrus and bitterness with light malt toast and sweetness. hops dominate and bitterness comes through well in the nose.

Taste is just as solid as the scent, big hop front, citrus bursts forth, solid hop bitterness, nice grapefruit and lemon zest, hints of earth and bitterness. Malt flavors are subtle as expected, nice light toast and maybe some bread.

Mouthfeel is spot on, good lingering bitterness and light malt to balance, a nice mix to make the stronger bitterness work well.

Overall, a great brew, big citrus rind flavors and hop bitterness on the tongue, malts are there in background form but provide quality light sweetness.

32 oz. growler filled at Vista bev., South Salem, NY

Pours near clear, slightly ligher then almond amber. Nice fine head, leaves a delicate collar, tiny bubble film and super fine sheets of lacing. Nice lookin'...

Muted nose with some grainy hops

Decent butt really nothing special kinda AIPA.

More grainy/resiny hops in the forefront. Hoppy with nearly enough malt to reflect some balance. Not overy impressed. The look of this one was the highlight, and thats not a good sign.

A - orange with fluffy white head, considerable lacing

S - tropical sweetness that is overwhelmed by piney hops, quite aromatic

T - sweet citrus background that is overwhelmed by the piney hops, very dry due to the bitterness

M - quite clean and crisp, surprising for something with this much going on

O - the contrast between the tropical sweetness and the bitter hops keep this interesting even though the hops clearly dominate
