Growler from East Nashville's Filling Station into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear deep orange, belying its name. Off white head dissipates quickly, but retains a thin layer. Nice lacing.

S: A little orange and pine. Slight hint of cat pee.

T: Some citrus, then pine. Mild hop presence. Easy finish with a slowly developing bitterness.

M: Medium feel and carbonation. Not dry.

O: A decent IPA that neither inspires nor offends. Not as aggressively hop-forward as many west coast IPAs, but smooth enough for a session. I wouldn't seek it out, but wouldn't turn it down, either.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight floral aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly intense hop bitterness that lingers long after each sip.
