Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Clear light golden in color with a pretty, moderately-sized, near-white head. Levaes lines of spotted stick down the glass.

Very apricot-flavored aroma--distinctly so. This is a juicy, citrus-forward IPA. There's just a bit of a grapefruit character as well and a hint of bready sweetness.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with big notes of apricot juice, along with a low level of bitterness, and some very mild floral and bread notes.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A tasty IPA, but not one I could see myself drinking a terrible amount of. The apricot flavor overwhelms, surprisingly.

On tap at Green Flash. Thanks to Brocal for letting me know all the spots where this couldn't be found. Helped narrow it down.

A: Light golden orange with a finger of soapy white froth. Good clarity and nice color. Tendrils of white lacing are left behind.

S: Apricot and orange flesh blend with pine resin and a light crackery malt profile. Restrained tropical character. Nice spicy grapefruit Simcoe nose.

T: Ripe orange and nectarine with grapefruit rind and a heavy dose of pine resin. Aggressively bitter and very dry with no detectable malt influence. Very dry and bitter in the finish with lots of resin and citrus rind.

M: Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation. Dry and sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: A nice IPA. Very aggressive, though. I don't often say this, but a touch of sweetness would be welcome here to offset the resin and citrus rind.

On tap at Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruits. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
