Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, orange-copper coloring with a dense, foamy, clingy, white head. Nose of tangerine and apricot, cedar notes, and a subtle caramel and bready backbone. Flavors are roasted and tropical fruit forward, with pineapple and melon notes, on a peppery dry hopped backbone. Smooth and mid-bodied, with a spiced and bitter hops aftertaste. Smooth, dry finish, with a resinous linger. Solid brew!

Served on-tap at LAB (Lexington Ave Brewery) in Asheville, NC

A: Pours a relatively clear golden amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation near the surface of the beer and some golden yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a half finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops over a lighter aroma of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of caramel malts without much associated sweetness which is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops. Light amounts of bitterness which fade pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: An easy to drink and enjoyable simple IPA - not too aggressive in the flavors of the hops or the bitterness. Pretty well balanced.
