This one pours up a very clean and clear gold with a one finger head, not much retention, and not much lacing. The nose is lemon, honey, oranges, and biscuit and is a fairly strong smell. Taste is a lot of citrus followed by a goodly amount of spicy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is nothing special. I enjoyed this one and recommend it.

Stopped by the pub for some Sexual Chocolate after work yesterday, after which I decided on this as my "cool down" beer.

Came out a crystal clear orange, no haze at all. Nice finger-width foamy cap. Good lace sticks to the glass. Smells fresh with lemon-lime, orange zest, grassy hops. Not too sharp, but just a nice pleasant citrus aroma. The body is easy-drinking. Moderate-to-light body, good carbonation, clean finish.

My buddy got the Hoppyum as his "closer," so I took some sips to compare this version to their standard IPA. I've also had that one many times, so I had a nice comparison. Where that beer is juicy and fresh-tasting, this beer comes across a little muted. This is more like an IPA-light. Definitive bittering hops, but there is no lasting flavor on the finish. Mild citrus, slight peppery flavor. Finish is a little dull.

All in all, I much prefer their Hoppyum to this one, but it wasn't too bad. I may have it again, but most likely will reach for better tasting IPAs when available.
