7/23/13 Poured from 22oz bottle into pint glass.
A: Cloudy, unfiltered, golden yellow. Really beautiful. Almost looks like a Mimosa.
S: Citrus notes up front, grapefruit. This is my type of IPA. Really fruity. Must come from the Nelson Sauvin Hops.
T: Getting the rye most on the finish. Really fucking tasty. Citrusy, nice hop profile, finishes bitter.
M: Clings to the mouth nicely. Medium to high carbonation. Nice and lively.
This was my first east coast/west coast beer swap and I am extremely pleased. Need to search out more IPA's using this Nelson hop.
Serving type: bottle

Had on draft at Alpine on 4/2/14
A-Pours a light tangerine hue with a nice, 1.5 finger frothy white head that leaves decent lacing on the way down.
S-Grassy, Citrus, tons of grapefruit, mixed with light sweet fruits.
T-Bready and a tad spicy that leads into lots of citrus, blood orange, tangerine, grapefruit and has a nice bitter finish.
M-Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O-This was wonderfully complex and balanced and one of the best IPAs i’ve ever tasted, bar none.
Serving type: on-tap
