On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a clear, bright copper with a nice white head that leaves spotty lace.
Loaded aroma, plenty of citrus, candied fruit, some herbal and grassy notes as well.
Citrus leads the taste with orange and grapefruit, some candied sweetness, more citrus and a pithy, slighty dank finish.
Mouthfeel is medium, relatively low carbonation, a touch sticky.
Pretty dams good.

at the brewpub, pours a clear glowing russett with one finger white head and decent retention and lacing. kind of got a nettly earthy sweetness, some pine, some honey, some candied rind and a substantial malt backbone, a little syrupy without being heavy, very nice bitterness, finishes dry. Like their pale that I tried, this struck me as being tightly constructed and very clean. Good stuff.

Pours brilliant gold under a 1" white foam collar that persists and leaves sheets of lace. This is a hoppy full flavored IPA with big hops balancing big malt flavor.
