Got this in a growler trade from Rolandboy, thanks buddy.

As soon as I twist the growler cap the herbal hop aroma becomes very apparent.

A - pours a light golden with a small head. Probably a little bit of carb lost in the shipping process, but nothing really apparent. An aggressive pour produces a inch or inch and a half of thick white foam. Some chunky lacing.

S - Smells of rich herbal and floral hops. Rich orange and grapefruit peels with some herbal/sappy notes in there. Really fantastic.

T - this beer excels by not trying to be the biggest and baddest. Very balanced refreshing... Sip after sip of medium citrus hops. Manages to produce a very forward hop presence with minimal bittering on the back end. Near impossible to stop drinking.

M - has to be prefaced that I was drinking a 4 day old growler, but I thought it was great. Medium carb, the thickness of the beer was right on as a vehicle for the rest of the beer.

O - this is a great IPA. Ended up trading for it on a whim when Rolandboy put up a trade for local growlers, sure glad I did. This stuff is top notch.

3.84/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 12oz bottle into an Alchemist Wili Becher glass. No date.

Appearance- Slightly hazy amber with quick half-finger white head that left nice lacing.

Smell- Definantly grapefruit with reasonably strong bready malts up front. Some banana, pineaple, and peach notes as well.

Taste- Light orange and tangerine up front, fades into that bready malt, and finishes with a nice piney bitterness. Thats about it.

Mouthfeel- Great medium body with medium carb. Lighter and refreshing. Very easy to drink.

Overall- Not a pale that truly stands out, but still a nice refreshing, easy to drink beer with solid hop notes.

This ale pours a crystal clear copper color with a light white head that leaves a nice film and lacing. The aroma is very dank. Hoppy citrus and tropical fruit notes abound. The mouthfeel is very smooth and light, quite easily drinkable. The flavor follows the nose with lots of tangerine, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit notes. The malt is minimal but just enough to make this enjoyable. This is a good beer. It seems closer to an ipa than an apa. Great after work refresher.
