32 oz growler into a teku

Appearance: Pours a bright yellow color with a finger of a creamy white head with moderate retention and lacing. Body is very hazy but translucent.

Smell: Lots of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, grass with hints of pine and dank.

Taste: Clementine, grass, slight crackery malt and pine. Clementines come through even more in the finish in the form of juice, flesh and zest. Aftertaste is almost as if you just ate a bitter clementine.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and medium/light fine carbonation. Dry-ish finish with a mild lingering bitterness.

Overall: Really good IPA/pale ale and the clementines are definitely the star here. Super juicy and worth going out of your way to try.

A little sweeter than I like, but the very present orange citrus worked very well with the hop character. Super crush-able and had that signature tired hands after taste.

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Light yellow orange. Not much of a head on it. A few surface bubbles. Slightly hazy.

Smell - Citrus hoppiness. Orange. A little peppery, which is interesting.

Taste - Similar to the smell. Oranges are distinct. Citrus hops. Bitter very quickly, but not a strong bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Very light. Slightly bitter. Very low carbonation.

Overall - Very drinkable and balanced. A subtle pale ale, I guess I'd dub it.
