Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, yellow-copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of citrus tart and sweet forward, with a toasty backbone. Light and crisp. Flavors are resinous forward, pine pitch and tassel, with a dank overtone on a light citrus and cracker backbone. Tasty brew. Light and smooth in mouth, with a resinous pitch aftertaste. Smooth, slick finish. This one could sneak up on you. Damn tasty!

Serving type: on-tap

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was a small amount of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A strong aroma of citrus (this really hits you right away), hops, and malt.

T: As expected the citrus element was very prominent in the flavor, mingling with hops, pine, and a lot of malt in the finish. Quite a big, complex flavor here. Almost seemed more like a DIPA than a regular single IPA. Very tasty nonetheless.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Holy City has become known for some aggressive brewing and this one is no exception. It's powerful, flavorful, and well worth your time.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured a glorious orange golden honey hue with a wonderful sticky fluffy snow white head leaving blankets of lace down glass.

Outstanding piney citric hop aromas of resonious pine and wildly outlandish tropical fruit aromas of pineapple mango lemon and lime zest with hints of grapefruit and more pine.

The flavor follows the nose with more citric notes of lime zest lemon and grapefruit along with the fresh piney flavors of a beautiful medley IPA!!!

The nice fresh crisp dryness SCREAMS for another sip!!!! Creamsicle smooth wonderfulness makes me want!!!

SEEK BUY CONSUME!!! Maybe this glorious thang will be a regular.
