Poured from bottle into tulip glass.

A dark golden amber with a two-finger off white head that looks deliciously spongy. Leaves lacing even with frequent swirling. This is a really pretty beer.

The nose is full: floral, citrus and biscuit aromas fill the glass. A beautiful bouquet of tangerine and grapefruit pave the way for caramel and biscuity malt.

Taste follows smell: citrus hops start and finish the party while a nice balance of malt carry the beer.

An medium-full body does the beer well.

This drink lives up to the hype. You've gotta snag a four-pack of this if you're able.

Nice & strong hop bitters hit at first. Finish is strong too with malts sneaking into the full roundness of taste in your mouth.

Pours a beautiful, fluffy big head, with a vibrant yellow-amber color.

Smells irresistable lemony, very juicy, coated up by toffeeish, balancing malts. Citrus mingles together with dried orange peel outstandingly well, creating a crisp, lemon defined hoppy nose.

Has a medium carbonation with an extremely crisp and dry, refreshing mouthfeel.

Taste mirrors the nose, as it begins with toasty, biscuity malts, as well as bitter, luscious lemons hitting the palate in an uncompromising, fruity fashion. The beers intense lemony hop profile gets enhanced by a mineralic bubbly carbonation, revealing a grassy dryness. This dryness leads to the brews finish, in which the profound lemon character even gets enhanced by a prominent, bitter, lime infused dry note as well as slick sweeter malts, unleashing a very focused lemon fruitiness.

Easy drinking ipa with a great hoppiness to it, gently balanced by sweeter, flavorwise fitting malts, leaving the beers spotlight on the fruity hops flavors.
