Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a Weissbier glass; bottled on July 3, 2017 (but refrigerated since purchase).
A: Pours a cloudy orange amber with a one inch egg shell white head, good retention, and strong lacing.
S: Floral and fruity. Aromas of grapefruit and orange mingled with medium roast maltiness.
T: Citrus and spice flavors blend nicely with a white peppery bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with robust carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste.
O: This is a very nicely crafted IPA. To the eye, it more the NEIPA, and to the palate, more a WCIPA, but it certainly was enjoyable.

Draught @ Brew City: This one pours a dark, clear, orangish golden color. There was a small light tan head and some lacing. Lighter nose. Faint hops and malts. the taste is somewhat bitter. Light pine and citrus. Medium bodied. Meh: IPA light.
