Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a very light film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of orange zest, grapefruit, fresh cut grass, pine resin, bready pale malt, some sweetness and a touch of booze as it warms up. Once it warms up to room temperature the zest levels are off the charts.

T - Starts off with a mix of grassy hops and plenty of fresh citric fruit zest slowly being joined by some pine resin, light residual sweetness and some chewy pale malt. Finish is pretty bitter from all the hops and fruit zest, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Bitter, chewy feel combine with the well balanced flavors to make it very easy to consume, even at 7%.

O - I really like this one. It kind of reminds me of Grapefruit IN UR IPA but with a bit more fruitiness thanks to the addition of oranges and lemons. Yet another solid IPA in an ever growing lineup of them.

Crowler poured into a snifter. Thanks Bryan for the share. The brew appears a clouded yellow color with a white sudsy cap that is quick to fade.

The aroma opens up bright with citrus pulp, pith and a zestiness reminiscent of grapefruit.

It tastes grassy then like grapefruit juice with a lingering bitterness of citrus zest and pith with an aftertaste like soap and chlorine.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. It starts off alright but as I work my way through the glass it becomes pretty bad.
