A - pours a crystal clear vibrant orange. A heavy handed pour results in over three fingers of thick bubbly white foam. Decent retention but does fade to a bit of film and a thin white ring around the glass.
S - the nose is bright, fruity and herbaceous. Lots of sweet citrus mostly bitter orange peel with a touch of grapefruit pith. Hints of grass and pine as well as a sort of stalky vegetal character. All come together on a sweet honeysuckle malt character.
T - sweet honeyed malt character. Crisp citrus flavors in the center, mostly orange pulp. Leafy greens. Snappy grapefruit rind bitterness on the backend of the palate along with a touch of pine.
M - medium bodied. Medium carb.
O - an excellent india pale ale. Delicously balanced even though it is essentially a hop bomb.
