On tap at the Union Brewhouse.
It pours a soft copper/amber color with a medium-sized off-white head and some patchy and trailing lacing.
A nice fragrant floral hop smell rises up to greet and entice you to breath it in again. A light citrusy aroma is revealed as is a bit of fresh lemon zest perfume and a persistent dry malty background.
This IPA has rounded, almost buttery sweet malt body, which lays a solid foundation for the abundant and various hops to frolic within.
Pink grapefruit and tart lemon flavors are upfront. A dash of peppery spice, orange zest and an ever so slight metallic tang round things out.
A wonderfully quaffable IPA. Nice!

Thin head, barely half a finger of orange tinted eggshell tan color, the lacing has decent thickness but close to no stickiness. Cloudy yellow-orange liquid, opaque and holds light easily, hard to see any bubbles floating inside. The nose full of grains, wheat and sourdough, pepper, earth and grass, spoonful of molasses yet not a lot of pine, citrus or pit fruit, small dose of cocoa, kind of tough and gritty and without a sustained sweet component. Medium-bodied, the carbonation grinds things in place, not much spreading out. Cocoa, mocha, orange peel, pine and nectarine to pineapple fruit give it a nicely typical IPA profile, at the same time it stays within itself, no distracting burn. Credible malt presence, brings more sweetness than any citrus or flowers. Compact ending without seeming short. Lack of flash might tempt you to underrate it.
