On tap at Black Raven Brewing.
Appearance: Pale golden-orange with one finger of fluffy head. Lots of lacing along the glass.
Smell: Lots of citrus aromas. Orange and tropical fruit. Loving the hoppy nose.
Taste: Big citrus hops without destroying the palate. Super smooth hop character that follows the nose and is balanced by a sweet malt bill. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and leaves a sweetness on the palate.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a dryness as it finishes. Just a bit of alcohol heat.
Overall: A hoppy, sweet IPA that is refreshing and full of flavor. My favorite offering of the half dozen or so I've tried from Black Raven.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber, clear with light constant carbonation and a half finger slightly off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nice aroma (I wish "aromatic" wasn't redundant here) of biscuit malt and piney and citrus hops. Flavor follows, with citrus and mildly piney and floral hops, biscuit malt and light pear and sweet citrus juice. Finishes with citrus rind and the kind of resiny, complex hop flavors and bitterness that I hope for in an IPA. Body is at the high end of medium with a nice moderate creaminess, more than expected. An overall nicely balanced and aromatic IPA with a great mouth feel. I’m glad I finally got to try this regional classic. This is the third absolutely wonderful IPA I've had from this brewery (with Wisdom Seeker, Beak Tweaker (awesome)). Great brewery.
