Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information in evidence.
A: Pours a hazy, golden-brown color with a white, quarter inch head, with minimal retention, and limited lacing.
S: Somewhat floral bouquet, but more characterized by aromas of lemon, tobacco, spice, and grain.
T: Flavors of lemon, tobacco, and unrefined grains. Bitterness predominates at back end and lingers overly long in peppery aftertaste. Not well balanced and too much aftertaste.
M: Light to medium bodied.
O: Bitterness too peppery with limited malty offset and without being quite satisfying. Wouldn't try again.

For an IPA, this is really smooth and light. Hops are a tad fainter and lighter than I like, but I can't at all complain because the flavor of this beer is great and its smooth as hell to drink. Malt and bitterness is well balanced. Beautiful damn lace in that glass too. Overall a pretty good beer that if more available I'd drink as a regular beer, as its damn drinkable.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Golden/amber. Clear with a white head that faded fast and left some lacing.

S---Grapefruit, orange--as advertised.

T---Fruity & full of citrus. Grapefruit and orange again.

F---quenching and clean. Not as much carbonation as I would have liked.

O---A pretty good IPA. Not a top of the line one, but I'd certainly have another.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sly golden yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a decent pace to fill a one finger white foamy head. Light fizz. But a balanced foamy/bubbly lace. The aroma starts with the citra bitter to sweet hops with a touch of grassiness and then a balancing malt backbone. The flavor leaves a little bit to be desired with the citrusy aromas to taste slightly burnt with lack of zing. Malty biscuity to caramel tones. Earthy to citrusy and bready aftertaste with a mild crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV feels effective, fine. Overall, weird AIPA. Though I didn’t see a date, my cohort said it was fresh thus my numbers. Unsure if I would come back to.

Darker than most pale ales. Very clear amber colour. Smelling you can expect the citrus in there but also accompanied by a tinge of hops. Taste is even better.

Smelled like stale sweaty boogery tissues

Tastes like pickled jalapeño peppers and cheese? Jalapeño poppers?

Cask ale

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellowish gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness quickly follows. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA but there are several others in the style that I would choose first.
