Always grab some sixers of this when in OH visiting the in-laws. Noticed I never gave this a proper review. 12oz bottle into a goblet. The pour yields a dark honey-amber with a thick frothy bone-white head. Great retention, with spotty lace left behind. Pine, citrus, floral overtones. Nothing new here, but the aroma is so potent and fresh. Love it.
Medium carbonation gives this beer enough heft to hold up the flavors, but without any lasting astringency. The reason I love this beer so much is the perfect balance between the bitter hops and sweet malty backbone. I would say this even leans slightly to the sweet side, which isn't a detriment to it at all. Grapefruit, musk melon, orange give this a nice fruity quality. The hops add just a touch of oily feel as well, and they don't linger too long on the aftertaste. Just enough "burn" to satisfy the hop-head in me, but fleeting enough to keep me gulping this one. This is one of the most drinkable and approachable IPAs I have had, and it will be one I continually buy when in the area. Can't wait until Christmas when I can get some more!

The beer comes in a super hazy vibrant peachy orange color.
The aroma has light orange, spicy pine, dankness, a bit of that cat pee along with grass, herbs, and a light grainy malt.
The flavor follows of peaches, mango, bitter grapefruit, grapefruit and orange peel. The finish is again of grapefruit pith as well as a long piney and herbaceous flavor. There’s a bready and grainy malt flavor in there. A medium and very drinkable body.
A very well balanced IPA that is easy to drink. It has subtle flavors throughout, a light body, and very dry finish.
