Had on draft at tired hands and thought this was one of the better beers I've had in a while.
Poured a hazy orange color with a great citrusy aroma. Taste was on par with aroma having a very juicy taste. Very smooth and highly drinkable.

Served on-tap at the pub.

A - Pours hazy yellow with a dense one and a quarter finger head, slowly dissipating down to a thick film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh zested oranges, pine resin, tropical fruit, wet grass and some lightly toasted pale malt.

T - Starts off with a mix of orange zest and pine resin slowly being joined by the fresh cut grass, doughy grain and some more tropical fruitiness. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick, bitter feel with a good amount of dryness from the hops and light booze.

O - A nice IPA. Having just had their fresh hop beer this one is a bit of a letdown but still quite good in its own right.
