Formerly Heyoka IPA

Senita is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics and then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold and ready to travel into the distance.

4.39/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

APPEARANCE: Bright orange with a light haze. The head is white and about a half-inch tall. Retention is fantastic; a good two minutes before it drops down to a thin sheet of foam covering the surface. Lacing is strong, covering 70% of the back of the glass in layers.

SMELL: I love the grassy smell of Daisy Cutter and the Senita just has a little bit more grass, but also has a really nice, slightly bitter orange/mandarin aroma. There’s a little bit of pine and hints of tropical fruits and lemon as well. Really nice, smells like it will be deliciously bitter.

TASTE: The nose and the palate are almost identical; grass, orangey citrus with hints of pine and a little tropical fruit. This is a very complex, well balanced, but ultimately hoppy and bitter India Pale Ale.

MOUTHFEEL: Smooth and creamy, but with a nice tickle on the way down. The body is medium, but just on the lighter side. While it is nicely balanced, the Senita remains on the dry side the whole way through.

OVERALL: This is kind of what I remember Daisy Cutter tasting like back in the early days and I really, really like it. There’s just enough sweetness to balance out some bitter grassiness a citrus and make this insanely drinkable. My only complaint is that on the bottom of the can where I expected to see a stamped on date I only found two splotches of blue ink. That said, this had to be fresh given the intensity of the hops. I just hope they get the dating issue figured out by the time I get back to Chicago for more.

Sweet citrus aroma, then nothing, then bitter.... Ending in soft citrus.

Need more. I got a harsh aftertaste after some sips. Still a very good ipa. Worth repeat adventures.
