Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-burnt orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Light stringy lace. The aroma had a great dose of citrusy and piney hops, sweet and bitter with a nice malt base trying to coincide nicely. The flavor leaned into the sweetness of the hops and blended fairly nice in this department. Nice little hoppy aftertaste without the burn and reflected in the finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt appropriate as directed by the brewer. Overall, pretty nicely done AIPA. I’d go at this one again.

Very nice floral and citrus smell to this one. Taste matched the smell very well. Nice haze to this, not clear. Will definitely return for more of this next time I visit the area.

Not enough floral characters. Finished way to bitter for my liking, I was hoping for a better outcome.

Tap at the brew pub.

Hazy golden bright orange yellow color, little fizzy head

Nose is big bright hops, fresh citrus and mild tropical fruit notes, nice fruity grapefruit orange juice, light malt

Taste bright citrus fruity hops, like tropical notes, little grapefruit, orange peel, pith, turns a bit spicy and herbal tea like, gets quite pithy too, orange velvety cake like. Finish is long spicy earthy hops, chewy, pithy, etc.

Mouth is med bod, booze hidden well, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice, a bit better than I expected for so many different hops that I expected to kinda clash, and they do a bit, but there are still some nice components flashing through.
