On tap at brewery:
Clear classic orange IPA color. A mass of off-white head adorns the beer well into the pour.

Nose is a little grainy - like brew day, probably not helped by a somewhat dry grassy bitterness. There's also a light citrus rind note as well. Grapefruit starts to show itself wit some warmth.

Taste is a step up in impression, though it is reminiscent of the nose. Definitely more bitterness than the nose would indicate, which is a nice "correction" for me. Green citrus rind and pith, with a hint of pine wood in the end.

A fairly classic IPA in general, but a little more grainy (not malty, though) in its flavor. It doesn't quite get as piney as some, but sticks to a pithy bitterness that is present much of the taste, and draws on the tongue by mid-taste through the end.

Look is solid gold! Lacing is exceptional. Smell is pine and citrus. Taste is smooth hop goodness. Mouthfeel is just the right amount of lasting oily goodness. Very good beer. Interesting combination of hops.

Aroma: Great citrus and pine hop aroma Appearance: Golden in color, slightly hazy. Keeps a creamy white head Taste: Starts sweet and malty and finishes with a clean bitterness that doesn’t linger too long. Definitely pick up some grapefruit on the back end Mouthfeel: Medium body with a slight creaminess. Alcohol warmth on the finish Overall: Great hop aroma, more so than a normal IPA. Nice sweet malt character. Has a clean, crisp bitterness that doesn’t linger thru the next drink. Overall a great IPA

Copper pour, a finger of white head, excellent lacing. Nice looking IPA. Nose is fruity citrus hops. Maybe a bit of cookie malt. Flavor is likewise - huge hops. Fruity citrus flavors. A touch of spice at the back of the mouth. As with the nose, a touch of malty biscuits. Smooth - no element of bitter bite, just a nice balanced beer, particularly impressive given the hop content. Strong carbonation works well with the hop presence. Really a delicious beer, one that I'd have again if I could find it.

A- pours a caramel brown with burnt orange tints. layers of off white head that leaves a comet trail of hops on the glass after each sip.

S - Citrus rind, hops plentiful, malts subdued but they are in there, some bread dough comes through after a deep sniff.

T - Wow, the first thing that I can say about this is that it is smooth as hell and extremely well balanced. Nothing harsh or overly hopped on the front end and just has an easy drinking balance of hops and malts. Flavors that stand out are citrus hops, grapefruit, piney, resin, caramel malts, and some biscuity flavors and bread dough.

O - Extremely smooth and drinkable IPA that I would put in my regular repertoire if I could get it regularly.

Note - obtained at Schnuck's in Cape Girardeau, MO while on our summer 2016 family reunion.

Sharp and crisp, this beer means business. The golden orange, or orangery gold, color is unique, but the clarity of the brew is undeniable. Clear flavor, with a delightful bite. Wonderful fragrance. This is a fantastic beer.
