Appearance: light golden yellow in color with a 1" head that last a long time before falling to a thick surface foam. Plenty of lace here too.

Smell: orange and some floral aroma rise from the glass.

Taste: biscuit, orange, grapefruit, and a bit of spiciness are the main flavors. Bitterness is moderate.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp throughout. Light dryness late.

Overall: a well balanced and an easy to drink beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A nice hazy lemon drop color with a tall but thinned out head of 2 fingers. Lots of nice hills of lace left behind.

Aromas of lemon peel, limes, lemonade, and sweetbread.

Flavor is a touch catty, but not bad, and has a woody-piney-lemon hop flavor, with hints of white breads and crusts fading out the finish. Flavor is very mild, not much left behind, needing taste after taste to really come up with the adjectives.

Feel is pretty thin but very well carbonated, slight dusty and dry finish.

Overall, an unimpressive but still highly drinkable IPA with a nice Amarillo showcase. Amarillo isn't my favorite hop, but it has a really nice bright profile traditionally which this beer really helps highlight. Recommended if it rotates out again.

A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves good lacing

S: A good mix of citrus, tropical fruit, and bready malt. Very well balanced

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with light citrus and tropical fruit notes and then goes into the bready and crackery malt notes. Some dank hoppiness in there as well. Finishes with more dank notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. On the smooth side

O: A solid single-hopped IPA that does a nice job highlighting the amarillo hops. Quite drinkable too

Pours a true, bright gold color, medium hazy with a giant 4 finger pillowed white head that turns to soap suds as it collapses. I like this look a lot.

Aroma has notes of pineapple and lime with a sweetness behind it. This is a subdued smell that does not betray the full flavor of this beer.

The taste is a whallop up front of dank pine resin, with a sharp bitterness that takes you by surprise. There is a nice mellow sweetness that comes in midway through into the finish where the citrus and pineapple hop flavor finally peek through,

The feel is a little sticky and medium soft.

It has an interesting profile that is different from much of what is out there in this region right now, mostly from the high bitterness mixed with subdued tropicaal hops.
