On tap at the brewery...the appearance is fantastic! Super hazy and murkey..absolutely love a murkey brew. Nice hop fw aroma...pine and citrus with a big malt backbone. Taste is grapefruity hopiness...with a larger than normal malt backbone. Its orangey and a slight bit of roasted maltiness...easy drinker for sure. Its a fantastic brew...labeled as an APA here at the brewery...which makes way more sense than IPA. Worth a try for sure.

From 11/09/13 notes. On tap at the brewpub in Ardmore.

a - Pours a somewhat clear orange color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, toasted malts, and bready malts. Nice hops up front and a lot of malts as well.

t - Tastes of floral hops, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, roasted malts, bread, and wheat. A light bitterness and slightly more hops than the nose had.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good APA. Not a hop bomb and much more balanced between the hops and malts, but easy to drink and a good beer. Would like to have it again.
