Poured this one from a growler. The body was a hazy blunted orange color with a dirty white head. A film of foam remained throughout and left splotchy lacing down the glass.
The smell was muted oranges and grapefruit peel and the alcohol was a bit more evident as it warmed. Not nearly as bold as Cascade brewed beers often present.
The taste was caramel maltiness and grassy bitterness. Definitely less sweet and more drying – which I love in an IPA. A bit floral and citrusy from the Cascade hops. But, unfortunately I did not detect characteristics expected from the Citra hops. As much as I tried I didn’t notice the tropical fruit. No melon. No pineapple.
The body was medium and was lightly carbonated. Overall it was very drinkable but not as flavorful or as aromatic as I was hoping for. Cumberland brews a lot of great beers but this wasn’t one of my favorites.
