Thanks to BA Slatetank for the hookup on this 1-liter growler. Poured into a matching large TH wine glass the brew appears a clouded golden yellow with a white cap that fades back to a sudsy topping composed of large bubbles. Some patchy webs of lace cling to the glass.
The aroma is like pulpy breakfast juice...Orange Juice (OK - Clementines technically) quite fruity and zesty with an herbal hop addition to break the citrus zest up. It is somewhat dusty with hops (kinda like the last pour from a firkin that has a lot of pelletized hop debris in it) along with citrus fruits, pulp, rind, herbal elements that are slightly dank and catty.
The taste is herbal, catty, zesty, pulpy and fruity from the adjunct addition moreso than from the addition of hops (or so it seems.) Somewhat dank and juicy like fresh pressed OJ that had pellet hop dust tossed into it. Very rindy with juicy citrus fruits and hops but seemingly without much bitterness.
This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. More fruity like pressed/zested citrus than hops. A little watery and very easy drinking but this hardly feels like a beer. I dont know if thats a good or bad thing but honestly I am overall underwhelmed. I went into this with real high expectations and while it is good, I think you could get nearly the same product by zesting 100 pounds of fruit in any marginal pale ale. Nice to say I tried it but not something I would go out of my way to have again.

enjoyed in a tulip stemmed glass at the cafe upstairs on tap.
The color is like cider -light amber with moderate haze and golden hues with thick white creamy cap lots of lace sticks. The smell has a strong citrus aroma -I thought it had citra it in it but the amarillo and nelson give a moderate graprefruit and tropical orange scent with clementine adding to the combo. The feel is moderately high bitterness with lots of juiciness and medium carbonation and light alcohol.
The taste has a juicy tangy, tangy and slight dank flavor from the hops with no sour fruit or harsh bitterness but there is a yeasty fruit undertone with a moderately herbal and somewhat smooth IPA/pale...it is hopped like an IPA with a clementine flavor apparent alongside the high alpha hops which are pretty smooth bitterness wise. This is highly drinkable IPA...I consider it that since it focuses on hops and the malt is nowhere in the taste. I was happy to try this fresh and in growler it is a good blend of fruit and citrus tasting hops

The pour is slightly a hazed pale yellow and has a tight white head. The nose is a huge grapefruit explosion, light grain, clean. Taste has light doughy grain with huge grapefruit and a light musky yeast underneath. Carb is gentle on a medium creamy body.
