3.6/5 rDev -2.7%
Barely a finger’s worth of wispy white foam, with lots of larger bubbles it dissolves rapidly to a thin surface coating, the lacing fares a little better with long, sticky streaks all along the glass sides. The liquid is shiny and fully transparent, an attenuated orange to then yellow color, only a few random bubbles visible. Very floral nose, violets and lilacs, orange blossom, gentle apricot to peach, apple fruit notes, segues to cut grass, salt, pepper and hard bread crust, there’s some funk in the hops yet it also has a cleansing purity to it, not much to be found by way of really sweet maltiness. Full-bodied, thick enough to be sluggish, not a lot of carbonation. The tangerine, orange to white grapefruit citrus a larger factor here, just outpoints the metallic earthy and herbaceous qualities, which themselves are formidable. The fruit lacks sweetness but there’s bite in the pineapple, papaya, nectarine, peach flavors. More grainy than processed bread, touch of peppercorns and pine cones. By the end unwinds enough that the floral dimension gets assertive. If you like your IPA’s on the bitter side while still mostly balanced, this should be in your wheelhouse. Wisely keeps it simple when it could get overcomplicated.

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.
