Bottled march 18, 2014

bright yellow-orange, clear

Grassy and earthy in the nose along some dank. A bit of citrus. Cat piss.

Taste up front grassy and floral hops. A bit tangy and a good malt balance

medium carbonation, nice subtle bitter aftertaste. Dry and light.

Not exploding with flavors but a nice crisp standard IPA.

I have enjoyed this particular beer on both tap and from the bottle. It is on tap at my restaurant so I often pour this guy as my shift beer. It gives a lot of head when serving from the tap however the appearance is remarkable. The golden orange brew smells great and goes down like water. The taste is of course far from water- a nice, hoppy, semi bitter IPA. Mouthfeel is almost 10 out of 10. I would recommend this to a friend any day.
