Growler into a tasting glass.

Appeared a light yellow/orange color with a white head.

Smells of citrus - lemons, grapefruit, orange. Slight resinous smell.

Taste is delicious. Floral and citrus notes with a bitter finish.

Mouth-feel was average - a bit light.

Overall an awesome DIPA.

750ml growler filled about 2 weeks ago. Tulip glass.

A: Pours light straw color with two fingers of foamy but dense bright white head. Opaque. Very good retention and leaves behind an intricate lattice of lacing. (4.5)

S: Prominent white grapefruit, along with soft orange and tangerine, and a hint of melon and kiwi. (4.5)

T: Light citrus (grapefruit) and tropical and kiwi notes, along with a bit of sweet-tinged pale malt. Very mild gripping bitterness on the finish leaves a wonderful impression. Leans more towards a hoppy pale ale on the palate, as its light and the flavors are pretty restrained. (4.5)

M: Medium-light body and soft, medium-light carbonation. (4.75)

O: Tasty, subtle flavors make this exceedingly drinkable. You could drink a bottle of this and not break a sweat. I don’t think this will actually “wow” you, but it’s in perfect balance. (4.75)
