Pale orange with an aroma of fresh squeezed OJ and faint grapefruit. Has a nice mix of orange, grapefruit and a pinch of sugar sweetness on the tongue. There is faint herb throughout the finish. Medium and maintains a certain dryness from start to finish.

Quality drinking.

Had on draught at Au Cheval in Chicago. Poured a golden, hazy amber with thin head. Heavy lacing. Right off the bat strong delightful whiffs of fruits, honey, and pine. Taste follows with strong juicy flavor, giving away to a good balance of hoppy bitterness. Put away 2 pours before realizing it was 9%, can't taste the alcohol a bit. Overall a delicious American summer IPA.

Had on tap. Clear golden body with some cloudiness and a thick ring of cream foam. Smells is delicate, yet has plenty going on from the peach, orange, honey, wildflower, and slight mango. Taste is not as juicy as expected, but has decent hop bite but could be more for a double, big peach, honey and orange for sure, but the flowers creep up on you over time. Feel is a thin for a dipa, but it succeeds in being a bright and refreshing ale.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a growler on April 11, 2019. Brewed with Mosaic, Citra, Nelson and Sabro hops. Hints of peach, orange and candied honey to make a deliciously hazy beer.

poured from a growler purchased at the brewery. pours a semi-hazy golden yellow. creamy white head. smell is floral and fruity. taste is similar with more of a dryer, floral taste than fruity. really pleasant hop bitterness. just enough citrus fruitiness to cut through and balance the bitterness. feel is full and creamy. nice carb for the style. not too bubbly but not overly malty either. kind of an old school TG DIPA. i like it. despite being heavier and hop-forward, it’s drinkable.
