This is an EXCELLANT example of an unfiltered ipa!

smells very citrusyand also has hints of pineapple and hoppy. taste just like it smells which i love, grapefruits and citrus note really in the forefront. also has a silky type after effect on the palate! awesome! affordable, fairly easy to come by soid base ipa!

a murky orange pour with a finger of head. a terrible looking beer, but i know it's gonna get so much better right about.... the smell is of grapefruit, lots of floral/citrus, pineapple, honey. the taste is much like the aroma it gave off.. along with a bready backbone. nice and hoppy but not much bitterness aside from a light earthy hoppy kick in the end. medium body with low carbonation.

a pretty solid ipa. i like that the beer looks so bad, it makes everything else that much better.

A: Dark carrot orange is dense visibility wise with a dirty white head that was soapy, patchy, thin in depth and short on hold time retention. Strong indication of macro-bubble carbonation bubles.

S: The nose is of creamy oranges, with some earthy green shrubs. The bitterness level is very low, not alot to get out of here, disappointing, and moot.

T: Flavor is grassy-oragnes with only a moderate detectin level of bitterness though not really distinguishable in character, a homegenous soup of citrus if you will. Some piney aspect with a dry finish of grains and and a touch of dry sour lemon, that again is hardly stand out worthy.

M: Good level of carbonation, creamy and vibrant feel on the tongue with a dry piney-grass and alkaline like finish.

O: Overall an otherwise ordinary and average ipa that holds little surprise, excitiment nor reason for another. Hop ibus are low and disappointing as well complexity making for a boring drink.
