look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Served a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of citrus hops and orange peel with some sweet caramel malts and a bit of biscuit.

T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt with some orange and other citrus hops. Through the middle some bitterness comes through with some biscuit malt coming through. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, bitterness, and some sweet malt.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice dry finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice fresh hop profile with a great hop and malt balance.

Serving type: on-tap

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Nearly clear orange and amber with a thin off-white head that leaves messy, sticking lacing all the way down the glass.

Pungent and strong citrus and floral aroma. There's lots of orange and grapefruit aromas, along with some mild pine, and a bit of caramel sweetness. Wonderful.

Medium bitterness with plenty of orange and grapefruit citrus flavors, mild pine, and some caramel and bready notes balance things out nicely. Incredibly drinkable. Clean, discernible, refreshing flavors.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I really enjoyed this and will try to find this again next year.

Had this on at the brewery in October

Dark golden appearance

Poured with little foam

Predominantly citrus with melon undertones

Carbonation was light - less than ideal.

Malt was definitely present but not overwhelming

Easy drinking - deceivingly light

On tap at URGE. A wet hop IPA.

A: Slightly hazed orange with an inch of white foam.

S: Bright tangerine with dank pine and prominent fresh cut grass. I get a decent amount of mango accompanying orange and grapefruit. Perfumy floral notes waft from the glass. Malt is light, providing a little biscuit character. Smells awesome.

T: Flavor isn't quite as good. Moderately bitter with pervasive grassy notes and a little pine resin. Apricot blends with orange pith and tangerine. Malt provides the suggestion of sweetness and a touch of bread.

M: Lower medium body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: I really liked this. Definitely recommended.
