Enjoyed a couple pours from a freshly tapped keg while in Vermont. So excited to try this beer. Sipping on Edward prior to so I already have a hell of a reference point.

OG cloudy, orangish-yellowish pour with a moderate head of tightly packed foam. Beautiful lacing follows the beer’s path around the glass.

Aroma is freshly cut citrus and green leafy hops straight from the vine - orange, tangerine, peach, papaya and subtle pine. Lightly floral. Mouth watering.

Taste is fruit-forward with a light bitterness on the back end. Orange creamsicle, clementine, papaya, peach and cantaloupe. That Citra sings. Slightly tart and mildly acidic from all the citrus. Nothing vegetal or spicy. Delectable.

Soft body with a smooth feel throughout. Outstanding IPA.

25 cl pour at the brewery. Pours a hazy pale orange in color with a finger+ of white head. Aroma and taste have some stone and tropical fruits with a bit of cantaloupe and a heavy earthy note. Everything sounds like something I'd love but this one is just very good as opposed to great.
