12 oz. bottle dated Best By Sept. 21, 2014. Poured into a shaker pint with a finger of creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates. Hazy, bright orange body. Thin but sticky layers of lacing left on the glass.
Very citrusy IPA. Grapefruit, orange peel, and a ton of lemon. Floral and grassy with a bit of resin as well.
Flavor is very hop-forward, but the lemony Sorachi Ace dominate more than in the nose, with a spicy floral flavor behind it. Slight breadiness in the background to give it a bit of a body. There's quite a few fruity flavors in there, but they all fail to match the weight of the lemon. Dry, slightly tart finish. Very little perceived bitterness.
Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Nice crisp, refreshing beer with a fruity but slightly dry finish.
Overall, this is a good beer. Very hop-forward IPA, but not particularly bitter. Sorachi Ace has such a distinguishable flavor that isn't really my thing in an IPA, but I could see others really liking it. It's too bad Third Street only has this as a seasonal considering the amount of hopheads in the local market.

Pours a hazy goldish orange, half finger of white head, lacing isn't great
Smell is big of caramel, bread, grass, even a little hay, some sweet tropical notes, some kiwi, lemon and some more toffee
Taste is some caramel, toffee, butterscotch, lemon, orange, tangerine and pineapple, then some bready malt in the finish, grapefruit bitterness in the finish, maybe a little green apple?
Mouthfeel is medium light, average carbonation
Interesting beer here, it is good, I do feel that perhaps some of the malt flavor is fighting the hop flavor.
Give it a shot if you like a really balanced IPA.
