Rich golden color. Lasting white foam. Intense aroma of orange peel zest and grapefruit with a pine spice. More strong orange bitterness in the flavor. Could definitely be described as grapefruit as well such as the brewery suggests, but to me it's more orange (peel). The citrus flavors linger nicely on the tongue as well as the sharp bitterness. Medium bodied with fairly strong carbonation. The alcohol seems low and the malt balance is very clean in the same way Nelson presents itself.

Overall a very likable IPA. I've had many beers with Columbus hops in the mix, but trying a single hop version really showcases the character. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but memorable and well worth trying if you get the chance.

Poured on tap at Blue Palms 5th anniversary
color is golden little head on it not much
smell is hoppy but not overpower and some citrus
taste is similar with a lot of fruity maybe orange zest and citrus on the back end
not as fruity as a duet but nice bitter hop bite and citrus hop flavors come thru
definite a nice easy drinker that could be had more than one time

On tap at Blue Palms' 5th Anniversary in Hollywood, CA.

Uh oh! There is that hop again! Raul caught it in a few Pipeworks IPA's and also Founders Double Trouble; Raul ain't sure which it is, but "rocket fuel" is what comes to mind. If Steve McQueen's Mustang brewed beer out of it's tail pipe, this is what it would taste like. Raul loves himself some Alpine, and this beer definitely is drinkable, but that slight "lighter fluid" taste...

No mami. No mami at all.
