A) A very light, slightly hazy amber colored beer that is light enough to see through and that leaves a light thin white frothy head. This is not a very malty beer. The first time I tried this beer it left beautiful lacing all the way down the glass as I drank.

S) Pungent, citrusy, bitter, beautiful hop profile. This screams west coast style IPA.

T) While the smell is hoppy, it does not quite prepare you for the level of hops present after tasting this beer. The taste starts off light, crisp and citrusy with hints of what seems like orange and pineapple but quickly turns into a nice clean bitterness that will stay on your tounge until the next drink.

M) A very light and drinkable beer.

O) This is one of the best IPAs I've had. This is a very refreshing IPA because it's so light and citrusy, but will give you a large dose of bitter hops as well. The balance is very nice and there are no real negatives for this beer. I look forward to trying one at the Brew Kettle Taproom in the near future.

Cheers

Deep glowing sunburst orange body that is translucent, white cap.
Nose is sweet citrus forward, like tangerenes and tangelos, a hint of mango.
Nice slightly bitter tropical citrus flavor, more tropical and bitter on the palate then the aroma was. Still on the sweeter side of citrus as the aroma was, but def more tropical aspects going on now.
medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, a bit more would make it pop a bit better.

Really solid IPA, i could drink this often.

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - lightly hazed golden yellow with a white head that thinned down leaving thin trails of lacing.

S - blast of tropical fruits and citrus.

T - tropical fruit sweetness and citrus rind bitterness, tart and dry on the finish.

F - medium bodied with mild carbonation and smooth drinkability.

O - very good example of the style.

A 12 ounce bottle from JM03; thank you! Poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear orange and develops roughly an inch of fluffy white head. Solid lacing, but not a whole lot in the way of retention. Still, a good looking brew. The aroma is of sweet citrus - lots of grapefruit - floral hops, some tangerine, and loads of pine. If grapefruits grew on pine trees, then orchards would probably smell a lot like this beer. It tastes similar to the aroma, with lots of grapefruit and orange citrus in front of earthen, piney hops. A sweet, almost sugary comes through as well. Mouthfeel is bitter, crisp, clean and just dry enough on the finish without overdoing it. Carbonation feels spot on. Overall, a solid IPA that is undoubtedly worth a try. Loads of hops and citrus, just the way I like it.
