A - copper brown with decent clarity. Nice oily white head with nice stick.

S - Citrus notes - pineapple, citrus zest, resinous and dank.

T - as the label states - "like thousands of little hop fairies dancing off the back of your tongue" - this is a hop bomb through and through. Citrus zest, hop resin, oily hops - so much going on that it confuses and challenges the palate. Finish is oily and dank.

O - Really solid hoppy IPA. I would have this again and this brewery continues to impress with each beer.

A- A pale golden color with plenty of carbonation feeding an ample and billowy white two finger head.

S- Tangerines, grapefruit and lemon zest immediately fill my senses. Smells delicious.

T- The citrus of the hops in the nose become sweeter and are met with a pale biscuit malt flavor. The two merge together gracefully. The finish is dry and mildly spicy.

M- Very easy to drink and goes down nicely. No problems.

O- This is personally a favorite of mine. Great citrus flavor from the hops that I love is backed properly and proportionately with a mild but flavorful malt bill. I have only had a few of these and I will be looking for them in the future.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is golden with yellow highlights. It has very little off-white head.

S - It has a light, fresh floral and citrus aroma.

T - It has a crisp citrus element. Some bitterness builds as I consume it. The more I drink. The more I like it.

M - Moderate

O - At first I wasn't impressed. The more I drank. The more impressed I became. This would be a great all day beer, especially in the warmer months.
