750ml growler split between me and Kevin, filled at the brewery earlier that day.

Bright and hazy orange pour into a snifter. A couple fingers or so of white head fall to a thin but full cap with great webby lacing. Classic IPA appearance.

Juicy citrus fruits by the bowlful, earthy weed, with light sugar cookie and bready malts. Nice without a doubt but perhaps could be more potent.

Great mix of grapefruit, peach, lemon, earth and dank, with biscuit and light caramel sweetness for malt backing. Low bitterness makes this seem subtle in a way though the flavors are excellent.

Absurdly smooth+soft mouthfeel, creamy even, and very drinkable for the ABV. Dry finish and low-ish carbonation.

All too drinkable. Great hop flavor, low bitterness and impeccable balance.

Pours vibrant, cloudy orange, white head rests like a creamy pillow on the surface, sticky lacing left behind. Aroma is juicy grapefruit and pineapple, mango, orange essence, with earthy, lightly spiced pine, dusty pale malts behind. Taste is more grapefruit-centric with hefty citrus, still a bit of pineapple flesh, caramel sweetness blended in and offset by rich piney bitterness. Medium body, very easy to drink with bright well-balanced flavors and no sticky resin character.
