A gift from my sis-in-law who brought a bomber from San Fran to Nashville for Christmas (along w/ some Pliny too).
This one pours clear, light gold in color with a thick white bubbly head. Good lacing and retention with the head receding slowly. Smells like citrus and fruity hops, sweet grapefruit, fresh cut grass. The taste mirrors the smell with fruity citrus up front and finishes w/ grassy, earthy hops and lemon rind. The taste is a little weaker than I would have expected. The body is light and slightly watery, very little carbonation to speak of. I enjoy the flavor of this beer, just wish there was more of it. A little too thin in my opinion but still leaps and bounds better than most normal-strength IPA's out there. Glad I got to try it.

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
