From 04/16/14 notes. Thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one. 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a murky, amber-yellow color with two inches of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of pine hops, citrus hops, fruity malts, grapefruit, resin, earthy notes.

t - Tastes of pine hops, bready malts, dough, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, earthy malts. Taste is good but definitely maltier than the nose, with a lot of bread and dough.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitter bite to it.

o - Overall I thought this was a really good beer. Definitely not a hop bomb and as hoppy as a lot of IPA's these days, but it was tasty so who cares. No bitterness and easy to drink, worth checking out.

Thanks to WCW for this one.

Poured from a 22oz bottle, bottled on 01/27/14.

A light honey colored body with thick foam and good, strong lacing. Smell is sweet clementines, grapefruit, orange flesh. Taste is resiny, sticky, full, sweet pink grapefruit and a nice baseline of bitterness. Really enjoyed this one.
