Enjoyed this on tap at the RR Brewpub itself.
It looked medium amber and clear, not much head but extensive lacing. It smelled like hop-head heaven. Simcoe hops seemed to dominate, a combination of floral and citrus.
Taste was very good, a great hop blast, well supported and well balanced. Overtones of licorice and small fruity notes. Mouthfeel was mildly astringent, clean finish, a little watery. Drinkability was outstanding, low enough in alcohol be almost be sessionable, and delicious and satisfying with every sip. Great stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a beautiful golden sunrise orange with a fluffy white head. The head dissipates leaving a generous amount of lacing on the glass. Smells of pine, floral and citrus flavors. The taste is very much the same with some malt flavors in the back end. This goes down very easy and it is very smooth. Not overly bitter, but some bitterness lingers. Overall, a very solid IPA.
