Another golden amber JAFB brew with moderate carbonation and head.

This one has an even more smooth and frothy mouthfeel than Rain Delay, with a buttered popcorn aroma and orange rind flavors.

I think I like this better than their more popular Rain Delay, very nice.

Another flight pour. Copper, with significant bright white frothy head. Fairly dank/earthy smelling. Fairly pungent floral and citrus hops. A lot of orange. The malt base seems to squash them a bit though. Very nice body. Good beer.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a hazy and bright orange color with off-white frothy head that left splashy lace.

S- Big pungent grapefruit, tropical hops, piney hops, and floral notes. Very hoppy aroma.

T- Huge grapefruit, piney, and floral hop notes with a pretty nice caramel and bready malt character.

M- Medium body, prickly carbonation, very dry, smooth and refreshing. Exactly the kind of body I want out of an IPA.

O- This is a great IPA with high bitterness, but it finishes very smooth. Tons of hop flavor and aroma, but there is also a nice malt bill.

On tap at JAFB

Dank/Citrus. Some pine on the finish and bitter. Excellent lacing and drink ability. Again, I really picked up a lot of dry hopping in the mouthfeel as with most of their IPA's. Gives it some nice dank features, but might be a bit much for me personally. Another quality brew from JAFB.
