Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance –Served a medium amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma was rather light overall. It consisted of some sweet caramel and fruit smells with hints of citrus and piney hops mixed within.
Taste - The taste starts out of sweet fruits and a grapefruit hop flavor. The beer has a creamy bready flavor that is persistent throughout the taste, which when combined with the sweet fruit creates a nice base flavor for the brew. As the taste advances further the grapefruit hop fades to more tastes of a earthy hop mixed with a good caramel flavor. Toward the end, a bit of resinous pine hop comes to the tongue leaving a bitter, but very balanced and fairly sweet, flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is average to just below average. The creamy body was quite nice for accentuating the hop flavors with the creamy body feel enhanced by the lighter carbonation. Both the body and carbonation made it a slower drinker, while even only at 6.6 % abv, and actually quite enjoyable.
Overall – This was a nice tasting, slightly sweeter, but very balanced IPA. This is one I could see myself drinking on multiple occasions. Rather tasty.

A: Hazy nectarine orange shows up a dense cadmium orange with a vibrant rush of carbonation. A two finger bone colored head is persistant in stay. Heavy foam lace deposits.
S: Tropical fruitiness upfront, freshly squeezed citrus juice, fresh green hops, and fresh orange with just a minor hint of white peppery flair. Bready, lightly toasted malts add depth.
T: Sweetly toasted grains with a bready nature, dry citrus, and grassy hops. Dry orange & peppery flair. Deep malted, toasted dry with a dry tropical-grassy hop touch. Sweet flashes upfront turns to a semi-dry of grassy hops on the close. Nice tropical orange zestness comes on the swallow with a hint of acidity.
M: Bready, full bodied, with some sizzle from the carbonation. Malty textured, semi-dry hop twang leave.
O: Good presentation and transistion of flavors, tropical, grassy, citrusy, orangey with varying degrees of complexity backed by a deep sweetly toasted malt base. Nice fresh burst of tropical hop twang on the swallow with a very good recommendation. Defiinitly not a one trick overly (dry) hopped pony, but something with a nice spectrum of flavors, both fresh and dry, tropical, and grassy, as well toasted sweet.
