#14257.

A: Beautiful soft sunset orange with a strong visible and glass consuming effervesce. Huge rocky light beige head is rock strong on the hold while showing big, chunky foam deposits on the glass walls. Second pour from the bomber showed a dense cadmium orange coloring, perhaps from the yeasty remains on the bottom of the bottle.

S: Sweetened grapefruit, mangos, and breakfast fruit (melon) with a fresh wet kiss of citrus and orange juice.

T: Flavor was bright and fresh, orange juice and citrus, with a soft, flowery hoppiness and a sweet breakfast like fruitiness of melon and sweet toasty grains. The bitterness grows flowery on the trial but all along remains nicely balanced with lightly, dry and sweet toasted grain backing that wasnt overly aggressive, but rather added just the right amount of highlights without becoming obnoxious like many brewers who over-use this per style. Grapefruit like pulp hoppiness from the chinook come on the swallow with a gentle lingering effect.

M: Warmth of flowery bitterness on the inner cheeks, viscose oily feel of malt, carbonation is mid-range providing a light tingle just enough for awareness, and perfect in harmony with the smooth transisiton of the flavor. Soothing and easy.

O: Drinkability is off the charts. Hoppiness is very respectable, very well balanced, not trying to be a dry hop bomb, but rather a nice mixture of flavor hops and lightly bittering hops with a light added touch of sweet caramel malt that never goes beyond what it should as a complimentary speciality grain. The 7.7% abv is virtually non-dectable feels like i can drink much more then i should. I could easily go case here and feel like i never have enough on hand. So tasty and smooth, very drinkable.

Aroma of Orange citrus, pine and some sweet beady malt.

Mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat chewy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is a nice balance of sweet caramel malt, Orange citrus, pine and a little tropical fruit. Finishes moderately bitter with lingering pine notes.

I didn't have a fresh bottle, but the beer was tasty and well balanced

I picked this up at Giant, enjoyed chilled in a teku.

The color is a sunny golden with light haze and thick white cap with good retention. The smell is very good with a strong citrus and dank herbal aroma. The feel is good with some mild sweetness and moderate bitterness with medium carbonation and low alcohol influence.

The taste has a mix of lemon and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt sweetness and light bitter herbal flavor in the background with a nice mild tangelo acidity alongside mild astringency with some gentle alcohol but the hop flavor is pretty fresh with light pine accent you can taste the citrus rind from the Citra hops which is nice and lingers on after the swallow. Overall I was pleased, this is a solid IPA, it lived up to expectations and I would drink this again.
