Pours a hazy orange with hints of red. Thick foamy white head. The smell is the strongest part. Farmhouse funk. Citrus. Grass. Hops. Yeast. Grass. The taste follows suit. Spicy citrus hops and rye bitterness. Grassy, yeasty hoppy goodness. Labeled as a farmhouse ipa and it fits this description perfectly. The combination of hops and farmhouse flavors compliment nicely.

As usual, JK knocks it out of the park yet again. A very solid hybrid that is reasonably priced

Batch #8 from June 13, 2013 poured into JK snifter glass.

A: pours a murky opaque light orange. Big head which recedes into uneven patches of foam. Slightly overcarbonated.

S: the aroma is very recognizable for JK and it's farmhouses, funky, oak barrels, dry, cracker, milk, grapefruit, fresh.

T: long sharp bitterness strikes at the beggining and carries thru to the back of the palate, very similar to grapefruit in terms of acidity and dryness.

M: dry, tartic, acidic, envolving, chewy.

O: this is an IPA with a strongly marked flavor profile, it helds itself pretty well for a bottle 8 months old. Still showing it's true character and loving how it doesn't feel watered down. The time in the bottle feels like it allowed the beer to expand it's flavors and aromas gained thru the barrel aging process. Very strong on the nose, slightly less strong, but still with a pretty decent kick on the palate. And if you let enough time pass it will end giving your mouth a cool refreshed feeling!
