Enjoyed on tap at the brewery.

A: Pours a cloudy light copper color with no head. Just a thin ring around the top. It appears very still.

S: This has a wonderful aroma. All kinds of citrus including orange, pineapple, and a touch of pine.

T: The taste is much more piney than the aroma leads you to believe. The citrus almost disappears entirely. A bit of a let down from the aromatic experience.

M: Medium bodied and very still. There is a moderate amount of bite of bitterness towards the finish.

O: A solid ipa. Its difficult to stand out with an ipa these days, but this is a solid representation of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer was served a medium amber color with a tiny white head that fades fast to leave only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell was citrusy and sweet with aromas of a sweet tangerine and orange mixed with some smells of caramel. Along with these sweeter smells were aromas of a bitter grapefruit as well as a bit of a bready malt aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of caramel and sweet citrus of a tangerine and orange nature. Upfront there is a moderate amount of a grapefruit hop taste which gets stronger as the flavor advances further. Along with the hop ,so too comes more flavors of a bready nature, but these are always much lighter and less detectable then the citrus hop. At the very end a lighter amount of a pine hop flavor also joins the profile giving the brew a lightly sweetened, but decently hoppy flavor .

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both make for a very easy drinking brew, but also allow for the hop flavors to be picked up nicely by the tongue.

Overall – It was a good IPA, but nothing exceptional. Worth a try, but not really worth going out of your way for.
