look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a bottle at Cork City in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a golden yellow to orange in color with some light hints of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that shows very good retention properties with a thick cloud-like layer remaining over the entire surface of the beer. Significant lacing is observed.

S: The smell is dominated by the citrus hops - more of an orange/orange zest aroma than lemon but with some more subtle hints of lemon as well. Overall not too intense a smell to this beer though it does become more pronounced as the beer warms.

T: This beer has a fair amount of lingering hop bitterness which is contributed by the citrus hops present (this is more of the citrus zest/rind taste). There is a very light amount of malts in this beer.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very enjoyable and a nice beer but probably too hoppy/bitter to be a sessionable beer in my opinion. The citrus hops are really highlighted in this offering.

Bottle at Cork City, Hoboken, NJ

A: The beer is clear yellowish orange in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that slowly died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are very light aromas of citrusy hops in the nose; however, these become much stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The citrus flavors in the taste are much more pronounced compared to the smell—grapefruit stands out in particular. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness and no malty flavors are noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy drinking and has lots of citrusy flavors without being too bitter.

4.03/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Golden with pretty nice clarity. The short and sticky head; settles into a faint cap. Leaves tons of lacing.

S: Some fruits in the nose are the usual suspects – grapefruit, orange juice, maybe even some of that sticky apricot smell. It’s sweet but the smell is spicy too. It has some of that peppery hop quality in-common with a pilsner.

T: Fruity, bitter, and a little peppery at once. Relatively complex. Theres a citric component, apple, white pepper, and bread crust. Nice.

M: The finish is great – juicy, bitter, and a little dry.

O: Solid offering. There are lots of very good IPAs out there; this is one of them. It’s clear, bitter, and features some juicy fruit.
