The beer pours a clean yellowed orange, almost like butterscotch, with a nice finger width rocky white soap bubble head on it. The beer’s body has a light haze to it, but displays a steady stream of bubbles racing to the head, and is really quite translucent. The beer’s lacing is not very noticeable with light to medium sticky clouds. On the nose, this beer is big from the minute you crack the lid. Even as it sits on the table in front of you, you should be picking up light wafts of orange citrus and pine. When you stick your nose in it, the beer smells like sweet pulpy orange juice with a touch of pine and a light caramel malt ghosting in the background. Hints of mango and passion fruit can also be picked up. On the tongue the beer tastes beautifully bitter and orange citrus. The beer begins with light malty notes before the bitters grasp the tongue and slowly ring juicy, pulpy, bitter orange juice onto the tongue, while a touch of pine works its way in. The finish is light with citrus and bitters and a touch of aspirin. The taste also displays lightly herbal saltiness, which is interesting and cool, reminiscent (to me) of the Floral IPA from Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp, though it gives the herbal flavor far better than the Floral IPA. On the mouth, this beer feels clean and medium bodied on the tongue. It is extremely drinkable for its alcohol percentage, and leaves the mouth with a light bitter dry pucker that is just enough to encourage you to keep drinking. Overall, this is a delicious IPA that gives me my proper bitter bite, while smelling amazing and giving superb orange juice flavors, which isn’t as common of a thing in IPA’s. Definitely worth a try for the hop lover, and then worthy of a couple re-tries to boot!
