4.35/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a nonic glass. The liquid is a beautiful hazy bright orange. The pour kicks up a one-finger off-white head that fades after a minute to a thin cap over the surface of the beer - a little more than a film, and leaves a nice amount of lace. Really nice looking!

Aroma is very floral, herbal, and earthy, like hop flowers just dug up from the ground (yeah I know that's not how hops grow). There's a nice caramel malt backbone noticeable in the background, kind of like a sugar cookie. Nice, balanced IPA aroma.

The taste starts off with a bit of sugar cookie flavor before the hops kick in. The hops remain delicately floral on the palate, with hints of citrus. The citrus-floral combination makes me think of yuzu. The finish is moderately bitter, and the aftertaste is floral with a bit of resin. Nice interplay between sweet and bitter, and perfectly balanced, with bitterness just winning out.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick, with a moderate amount of soft carbonation.

Overall, really great! I wasn't expecting to like this one - someone picked a bomber of it up for me once trying to be nice and, asshole that I am, I was reluctant to take some time out of my drinking schedule to try it. But this is almost exactly what I like in an IPA/pale ale - interesting hop character, and perfectly balanced malt profile. Really well done!

22 oz bottle bought from Fred Meyers in S.Salem. $3.39 Slightly hazy burnt orange coloured beer with a large creamy crème coloured head. Good fresh hop aromas here..lemon,slightly herbal and fruity nice stuff. Taste similar to the aroma..sweet and hops are drying,but nice again. Good palate..just about right..long lasting bitterness. OK IPA.

Purchased at South Fork Deli, Cramerton, NC...

Pours a hazy deep-dark orange with a small head and minimal lacing. There's a nice balance here, in the nose and the taste - the citra provides some bittering and minimal floral notes, with musk mellon present as well. The re's a decent amount of maltiness present too. Medium body and a super dry finish. This is a very nice beer, pick some up if you find it available. I look forward to the next glass.
