Pours out to a frothy head that persists and laces well. Color is a cloudy orange-gold due to bottle conditioning (forgot to decant). Aroma is piney, herbal , and citrus hop notes with bready malts. Flavor is spicy, tangy hops up front with a resiny bittersweet finish with a sweet malt aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light to medium with appropriate carbonation. Overall a very good AIPA.

Appearance - The beer pours a nice cloudy orange with a nice white head. Lacing present.

Smell - Very nice. Aroma of grapefruit and pine along with a slight floral hint.

Taste - Crisp and clean beer. Nice grapefruit flavor with a nice bready maltiness. Very well balanced IPA. Not in your face like a lot of American IPAs are btu still has a nice hop presence. Very approachable.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: Very solid brew from these guys. Very easy to drink IPA. Too bad it is seasonal and too bad we can't get it in New Orleans. This seems to be a theme.

On tap at Pete’s Place.

A: Served a copper color with a small head and bits of lacing.

S: Aroma is a mixture of citrus and pine with some malt sweetness and hint of spice.

T: Taste is similar with citrus and pine and malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly medium body, crisp and a bit refreshing 7.7 % ABV is well hidden.

O: Decent drinker, good for a couple. Nice offering from a small regional brewer.

Thanks Wade for this brew! What a great surprise. Had right from bottle...but I did pour a sip out to get a color profile...
Nice golden brown color. Smells of fresh hops and malts. Taste is very mild hops and lots of malts. Nothing amazing here, but it is a very nice IPA. Very mild, sessionable, drinkable, and easy. I wish it was a bit more fruity or sweet, but overall it is a really nice session IPA...which is scary due to its ABV.

P: 1/2 in of off white head that hangs around a bit.  Thin and airy. Cloudy yellow gold with yeast floating at the bottom.  Similar to weak brewed tea

S:  super clean tropical fruit hops, yeast esters, toasted grains. Crisp and clean aroma. Soft wood in the background. 

T/M:  taste follows the nose with a healthy dose of tropical fruit hops,  great sloshy body with a bit of thickness to it. Great carb level with a nice toasty grains and a peppery bite.  Finish is dry with a linger of timidly smoked orange peels. 

O:  A fantastic spring IPA that is crisp, clean and full of well balanced flavor. I love the burst of bitterness with the subtle spicy grains. A spring favorite for sure.

Kevin hooked me up with this beer recently just for the heck of it. It arrived via his beer of the month club and he wanted to share it with me.

Pouring into a Firestone Walker pint glass. Hazy orange/brown with a thin off-white foam that's partially retaining.

Moderate candied orange peel/lemon hop in the nose.

Moderate bitterness up front with a lemon rind citrus essence. Somewhat dank. Dry, clean finish.

Medium-light in body, modest carbonation.

Overall a decent example of the style but far short of memorable. Not one I'd seek out again but glad to have sampled it.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of tropical fruit in it as well as some bread and a little bit of orange citrus. A nice, fruity smelling IPA that is better than I expected it to be. The flavor is also very fruity. I get a lot of orange and grapefruit citrus notes, as well as some bread. The bitterness is pretty low for the style but there is a lot of hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I bought a single bottle of this at Highland Package store in Birmingham, Alabama. Not bad at all. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a healthy head that is pure white and leaves some lacing. Gentle hops in the nose, mostly floral, but with a dose of clean sweet malt, some waxiness and and a bit of bitter citrus. Similar in the mouth with a bit more grassiness and a bit of meatiness in taste. Fairly dry and grainy, but overall there is a gentleness and floral subtlety to the beer that makes it seem a bit more of the English style than the American- but with an altered hop profile that still keeps things somewhat restrained. Fairly nice.

A- Pours a pale orange with half a finger of head. The carbonation seems somewhat high for this beer, but for some reason it doesn't come out in the head.

S- Caramel, sweet orange, softened pine wood. Certainly hop forward.

T- There's quite a bit of citrus- lime, orange, lemon tangelo, combined with a bitter dusty, dirty piney, hop flavor. Some sort of non specific sweetness. The dirtiness is starting to get on my tastebuds nerves- it's mineral to the extreme.

M- Bitter. Strong carbonation. Right level of syrup/ stickiness.

O- There's some good stuff going on with this beer. I don't know if the mineral/ dirty bitterness is intended or bad aging, but I don't like that aspect of the beer. Otherwise not bad.

Today I found this 12oz bottle in a box I was about to re-use to ship some beers. I think its from wrigley1, but I honestly don't know for sure.

It pours a light orange color, hazy with a nice poofy foam. The aroma is very nice, very fresh smelling for an IPA that's been in my basement for an indeterminant time. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, not much malt, excellent.

The citric flavors are big in the taste too, with some bready malts making themselves known more than anticipated from the aroma. More flavorful than bitter, I could really drink quite a bit of this stuff. Extremely high drinkability, this was beyond my expectations.

Carbonation is about average, maybe a tad on the low side but that works in my opinion. Excellent, very glad to have tried it, and absolutely recommended.
