Dark blonde color with a small 1/2 finger.

Some tangerine, slight arm pit, rich hop aromas.

Lots of stiff tangerine to start, with suggestions of honey, and a good alcohol presence. Hop resin and pine on the finish.

Feel is slightly hot, with a tight carbonation.

Overall yeah this is a pretty good ipa. I'd have it again. Grows tiresome towards the final half.

On tap at good dog bar, Philadelphia.

Underwhelmed.

LOOK: yellow, small white head.
AROMA and TASTE are a typical dry/dank hair spray up a.

Not a fan.

Give me any of the Luponic distortions over this.

Can dated 2/13/17 into pint glass. Pours a clear light-amber color with a medium-coarse white head. Initial impression is pine, citrus, and a mild bitterness, balanced nicely by a subtle note of caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Finish is dry, citrusy, and bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. Very tasty IPA. Not world-changing, but eminently competent.

A - Slightly hazy golden amber. Head is fluffy with nice lace.

S - Grapefruit hoppy notes with toasted malts and other citrus lemon and orange flavors.

T - Citrus hops with a bit of floral hops.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation and smooth finish.

O - Well balanced beer.

Light gold in color with a thick head that retains well nice strong taste of hops, the standard for any IPA

Looks like all the detailed descriptions have been covered here. This is my go to beer. When ever my local store is sold out, a part of my soul dies.
