Freshy freshy. 1/19/18.

Body is champagne gold with a towering 3 finger head of fluff. Leaves lots of arty lace on the side of the glass.

Aroma is of green, fresh hops; baby powder; grapefruit and other citrus; slight grainy malt.

Flavor is very resiny, earthy, and green. Starts with some basic base malt (reminding me of Bud), heavy oils and resin, straw, with a quiet splash of orange and a big wave of bitter grapefruit in the middle, ending on earthy pine and more oils. IBU perception is off the charts. Palate scrubbing. Quite intense. Whew.

Feel is effervescent but still thick. Highly carbonated, nice oily, resiny feel, ends on some slight alcohol heat and heavy resin.

Overall, a pretty good midwestern IPA. Very clean, but very oily as well. Perceptible IBU's are crazy high. Reminds me of Alpha King but even more bitter. Not my style but I can respect its following.

If there was ever a "mowing the lawn" beer for me, this is it. Wonderful fruity hoppiness comes to the forefront and smacks you in the face. A bit of bitterness followed by a sweet and citrus finish.

I really love this one.

Tasted very grassy to me, like hay. Nice hops, but can't get over the dry grassiness. Pours a lovely orange with a finger of head, lacing stops pretty early in the pint. Expected more for the price.
