Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at AndrewK’s tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruits. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell and tasty flavor.

Well here goes attempt umber three. Puppy spills and randomly deleting when I go to change songs is always fun.
Pours a relatively clear and crisp very light amber. Pillowtop head is whiteand fluffy. Decent retention, good lacing.
Nose is big juicy spicy fruits and citrus. Resinous. Yum. A bit of grainy malts come through on some level as well.
Taste follows suit pretty nicely, maybe a little sweeter on the tongue, somewhere between honey and floral/fruity. A bit of hop spice and dull bitterness on the finish alternating with that sweet note.
Supremely drinkable, the finish is soft enough to not be overwhelming, but just bitter enough to leave you wanting another sip.
Another fantastic offering from one of my favourite breweries, local or otherwise.

This is by far one of the best fresh hops beers of the year for me. Golden orange in color. Bubbly, tan head with sheet lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit and floral. Big hops flavor- grass, citrus, pine and spice. That NW style IPA you crave. So juicy and delicious. Get one while you can!
