This pours a golden orange with white, cloudy foam. There’s a vibrant and zesty aroma of orange and grapefruit peel. Some piney goodness and a rounded bitterness come across. There’s layers of candied citrus peel mixed with marmalade on the finish. It’s an amazing, dynamic, layered IPA. Thought it was utterly fantastic and wishing it was a growler fill option as I would have loved to spend some more time sipping it.

This beer feels misunderstood to me. It's very much in the style of the Vermot/East Coast IPA but tastes pretty drastically different because of the Santa Cruz water. It hash a minerality unlike any IPA I've ever had. Not traditional at all, but since when was that something beer nerds cared about?

750 mL growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange body. Small white head. Leggy. Some lacing.

Smell - Super grapefruity. Grapefruit hops. Pale malt. More grapefruit. Hint of sweetness.

Taste - Sweet right up front. Pale malt. Orange citrus hops. Then strong pithy grapefruit. Lingering grapefruit bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Hint of creaminess. Very bitter.

Overall - Very enjoyable. Especially if you're into grapefruit bombs.
