Pours a hazy straw color with a frothy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of funky notes and some citrus hops.

Tastes of the citric hops with some funk and a solid malt backbone. Hops lead off with citrus and a bit of pine. Earthy and funky notes come next adding depth. Malts come toward the end with some bread and grainy sweetness. Finishes with a bit of funk and bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is tasty, but I think the Farmhouse Invasion was better overall.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Hazy orange with an off white head.

S: Tangerine, pineapple in the nose. Smells delicious.

T: Tastes more like a pale ale, than an IPA, but that makes it all the more refreshing on a hot summer day, with pineapple and orange notes.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: A damn good IPA. Far better than the farmhouse version. Delicious!
