Served on-tap in a nonic pint glass at the Iron Frog in Simsbury, Conn.
A: Poured a bright, cloudy, golden yellow color with a tinge of orange beneath a frothy, two-finger head of white foam that left some decent lacing in its wake.
S: Citrusy and floral with flecks of spicy, orange-rind infused yeast aromas and soapy, fruity esters that waft around a somewhat toasted-bready scent.
T: Mellow, juicy malt flavor up front brings citrus and herbal flavors to the foreground. Slight biscuit taste melds with lemongrass, orange peel and watery tropical fruits. A slightly skunky yeast flavor creeps onto the palate, throwing some coppery acidity into the mix before washing back with a bitter, herbal resin.
M: Medium-full bodied IPA with lots of juicy malts, some yeasty bits and a clingy hop resin to keep the palate busy while still maintaining and even-bodied drinkability.
O: Not a bad American IPA and a nice little boost there at 6% ABV which goes relatively undetected. It was good for a couple, but the palate could get burned out on its mediocrity or yeasty, oxidized off-flavors before too long. I'd get again, but would eagerly accept a more intriguing tap offering.

Cloudy, golden yellow color. Decent start to the head, good lasting time. Leaves some spotty/ring lace.
Plenty of floral hop and alcohol warmth to the nose. Decent malt presence.
There's an apricot like element to the flavor. The hop is like black pepper on the tongue and is strongest in the swallow. Good body with an elevated carbonation. For the style, short aftertaste.
