Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Watchman Campground, Zion National Park, UT.

A- Stubby 12oz bottle poured into a chalice with a yellow body and some yeast haze unsettles as its poured. A cap crowns the beer with a frothy foamy texture and fair retention. A ring remains depositing small sheets and spots of lacing.

S- Hops burst out of the bottle after I open iingand from the glass as I pour. Strong notes of grapefruit, citrus, lemon and tangerine with hints of melon, floral and pine. Some grainy malts in the backdrop.

T- The pine certainly shifts closer to the strong side of things but the main players are still citrus and stone fruit. It is not a juicy fruit bomb as the bitter pine and zesty citrus hops provide an edge. Notes of grapefruit, orange, strong bitter lemon peel, melon, dank, floral and resinous hops. Light pale cracked grains and sweetness provide a pedestal for the hops.

MF- Moderately thick body with a creamy and foamy texture that isn't chewy but some good puffiness forms on the palate. Carbonation is high with a nice crisp touch that accentuates the medium high bitter finish.

This is my second bottle of this beer and I am glad I reviewed this one. The aggressive citrus hops are dominant but layers of other hop notes mix in nicely. This shows that modern IPAs dont jusy have to be a hop fruit juice. Packs a nice punch but delivers waves of flavor.
