An interesting IPA. The head is good and quickly leaves leaving a nice residue. The aroma is nice and has a touch of orange??. The taste is exceptional even though the citrus is predominate. The hops and malt take second fiddle to the citrus, but somehow, ait all balances quite well. Good job on this one. Will definitely drink again !!

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has bright flavors of citrusy hops—oranges and lemons stand out in particular—along with a moderate amount of bitterness. Faint hints of bready malts are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is rather unique for the style in that it uses subtle flavors of bready malts as the underlying base, which both accentuates the hop flavors and bitterness and keeps the beer very easy to drink. The combination of lemon and orange flavors is also interesting.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a light, slightly hazed, orange-copper coloring with a light, filmy, sparse, off-white head. Nose of subtle citrus/tangerine on a bready backbone, with subtle resinous and bitter hops highlights. Flavors of tropical fruit forward, with a citrus lean, and a tangy caramel and bready backbone. Subtle pine, grapefruit, tangerine, and mossy notes. Light, crisp, and effervesced in mouth, with a tangy, tart, and bitter aftertaste. Light, crisp finish. Decent brew.

Hazy amber, modest head. Tangerine, grapefruit, and pine in the aroma. Big hop flavor and bitterness with caramel malt to back it up. I hesitate to say it reminds me of SN Celebration. Good balance and body. Finish is a little astringent, but overall, my first go with this brewery exceeded my expectations. At 2 and some change/single, worth checking out.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Cloudy opaque body, and a unique color combination inside the glass. Bright orange in the middle, deep lemon yellow and shiny towards the bottom, with some slow rising carbonation. Head is capped with thin foamy bubbles, but a large four finger tall size and styrofoam like retention. This looks like a creamsicle in a glass.

Real interesting nose. Mushy fruit, hinting at hop mango like tropics and a vanilla sweetness. Is that creamsicle thing going on? or more psychological persuasion? Hints of cream too very interesting and nice. Some nice light biscuit notes as well.

Palate comes very mellow but nicely. Minimal bitterness with a soft malt feel, nearly pillow feeling. Hints of hop orange and citrus, loosely leaving it's tropical sense a bit hinted on the nose. Good malt depth, and actually a good balance between light and thick. Creamy palate feel to match with a light sugared sweetness to go.

Overall some nice character but nothing really stands out tremendously. Decent brew.
