Golden color with small to medium head. Typical IPA small to medium grapefruit taste. Not overally bitter but bitter enough for a good overall finish

little too hoppy could use some more citrus notes and citrus taste to it might make it better.

I like this beer. Has a lower ABV which appeals to me when I’m going to have a few.

From January 2018.

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours a brilliantly clear light gold, nice head of foam, lacing.

Smells of mild pine, orange, toasted malt, some fruity sweet notes.

Tastes kinda sweet, mild hoppy bitterness from pine and grapefruit, fruity, mellow.

Medium body with medium carbonation.

Good but not something I would put on my regular rotation.

Orange haze with a decent head of foam without much retention but with pretty lacing. Smell is piny, resin, grass and malt. There is also some orange and lemon zest, but it's not as fruity as i expected. Taste matches the taste, could have been a bit more outspoken in flavour in my opinion. The mild sweetness in the mouth and bitterness in the swallowing is fine though. Mouth feel is medium bodied, with a decent carbonated crisp. All in all a decent IPA, but there are a lot of decent IPAs available today.

Not as cloudy as most IPAs. Also not as bitter which is fine by me. Not bad not great.
