This pours a caramel amber gold in color a cap of bright white foam. There’s a fresh citrusy aroma on this, akin to just picked lemon and orange. Sharply bitter, with a lemony orange flavor that comes across in layers and a drying finish. I liked it.

This pours a bright amber gold with a tall and frothy head. The aroma is fundamentally grassy hops, with some citrus notes. Taste is a nice mix of sweet malt with bitterness that's not nearly as high as many IPAs these days, but there's a load of citrus hop flavor, making it quite tasty. Yeast gives a little bit of fruitiness. Soft bodied, and not too carbonated. A good quaffing IPA.

Big huge resinous piney hops. Same on the taste with a very rich and tongue scrubbing hop flavor. Some citrus shines through but mostly piney rich resinous hops. Some sweetness from the malts as well bready and sweet.

The normal defining terms dont do this one justice. Great carbonation that matches the hop crispness really nicely. This ones pretty bitter and will satisfy any hop needs. What a great beer and brewery perfect score.

This IPA pours a clear golden light brown with a good cream coloured head that recedes to a thin film that lasts. The smell is very fruity with grapefruit and berry prominent and hints of the malty underpinnings. The flavours are nicely complex with lots of mineral, vanilla, toast, & tart citrus rind. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied. Aftertaste is dry and tart. Very enjoyable!
