Orange hazy appearance. Smell is citrus and tropical fruits. Represents exactly what I look for in an ipa. Taste is like juicy nectar. Citrus from the hops dominates the palate with a light malt backbone to balance. Hops definitely take the spotlight. Mouth feel is nice and light. Overall I'd day this is my favorite ipa at the moment. Gonna bring done back to Chicago for sure.

Got a "first run" can as an extra in a trade with greghochsprung. Who send old ass IPAs as extras? JK I asked for it, thanks greg!

A- Pours a nice murky orange wih a big fluffy 1" head. Looks great. I like my IPAs like I like my women, translucent.

S- Pretty faded. Some citrus in there but it seems to be 5 month old for some reason...

T- A shell of what it once as, the first run Jai Alais must stick close to the heard. If they wonder even fifty yards the wild ales will take them in a moments notice

M- Really good mouthswing, just the right level of carbonation

O- Excited to drink the fresh one tomorrow and do a re-review

Alright heres the fresh one, only differences for smell, taste and overall

S- Lots of great citrus hops on this end. Touch of sweet pale malts in the background

T- Huge burst of citrus in the front then a sharp change to pale malts in the end. Honestly I really like that aspect

O- This is what CCB was intending me to taste. Well done all around
