Pours hazed as all hell straw color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Much citrus, breadyness

T: Grapefruit, tangerine, a little bready dryness up front. Bready dryness, plenty of pomelo & a little apricot & mango as this warms. Finishes dry, with a little bit of orange, just a kiss of mango & passion fruit

MF: Medium body, moderate carbonation, nice balance, a touch of grittyness

So easy to drink, willl revisit this given the chance this one was 3 months old. still held up great!

Wow what a great IPA. If you like the West Coast style brews this one is a Top 5. Hazy light lemon shade with a nice silky head. Smells fantastic! Great aroma of grapefruit, orange, pineapple and mango. Smooth tasting with little to no bite. Not quite a Sculpin, but the closest thing to it that I have had to date.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on August 6, 2018. Brewed with Amarillo, Azacca, Mosaic and Motueka hops. Aromas and flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. Medium in body with a smooth finish.

Hazy yellow pour with a pilowy white 2 finger head that lasts. Fresh cut grass, yeast, orange peel and grapefruit on the nose. Palate mimics the nose. Very fresh and clean. Sweetness is subtle and the bitterness is there but tamed as well. Flavorful and quenching. Quite smooth and easy drinking. At 6%, you can definitely have a few and still be able to correctly pronounce your name. My first beer from Crooked Stave and this will not be my last. $10.99 for a six pack makes this a revisit. Recommended.

Hazy yet not New England style. Very hoppy nose and flavor. The flavor is better than most unfiltered IPAs, yet the aftertaste isn’t as overbearing as expected .

Pretty beer, if you like the haze style. More bitter back bite than some haze brews, which is a plus for me. Smooth, as the "haze style" should be, and with excellent head retention and glass lacing. ABV is only 6%, so drinking a couple won't set you on your ass. Overall, a solid brew.

Pours a turbid light orange, two fingers of fluffy white foam settle to a half inch, thick lace trailing partway down the glass. Smell: orange creamsicle, lemon candy, lime zest, grass. Taste: dilute tangerine juice, pineapple juice, lime and grapefruit segments, with a mildly biscuity and grassy finish. Medium bodied, creamy and a bit sugary. Pretty tasty, comes off much like a "lite" version of their Trellis Buster.
