On tap at Cycle. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Bright and very hazy orange body. Murky almost. Nice thick white head. Beautiful lacing. Wispy surface with a chunky collar.

Smell - Citrus hops. Orange and grapefruit. Some doughy sweet malts. A little bit of wheat, maybe?

Taste - Orange and pithy grapefruit. Oily orange peel hop flavor. Tastes like there could be wheat here too. A little bit grainy on top of the doughy sweetness. Low bitterness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. I expect a sweeter beer for the heft that this has. Almost creamy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Excellent, although lacking in something that makes it pop and distinguishes it from other excellent IPAs.

Fresh crowler, served in a snifter 4/13/2015.

A- Darker orange, slightly hazy body, one finger white head, not much retention, good lacing.

S- Rich caramel and toffee, a fair amount of tropical fruit and resinous piney bitterness. It's smelling quite sweet which isn't a bad thing in of itself. The hops seem to have faded a bit from what I would expect fresh as it is a bit sweeter than expected, but it's a crowler so who knows.

F- Caramel, a bit of tropical fruit, plenty of pine bitterness, strong pale malt sweetness. It's a fairly sweet IIPA that delivers a good balance of hops; it's not too much of one or the other although I would consider the malt to be the bigger player here. Fair amount of fruitiness from the hops, but plenty of sweetness from the malt.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation, about right for the style. Not difficult to drink. A tasty brew that is missing a bit of complexity and intensity but is overall executed reasonably well.

O- Solid IIPA, not one of the best from the brewery but it is good.
