I tried this at the brewery. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that has left a spotty lace. The scent had citrus presence. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid IPA and definitely worth a try.

A - deep gold to amber, clear, very slightly cloudy, off-white head, good retention
S - intense citrus, grapefruit, orange, some pine
T - big citrus hop flavor featuring grapefruit and orange, somewhat resinous, moderately high hop bitterness dominates, balanced by malt, clean dry finish, citrusy, tart aftertaste lingers
M - medium bodied, medium to moderately high carbonation, some alcohol warmth, not creamy or astringent
O -This is a clean, smooth, bitter IPA, dominated by citrus flavors and aromas, balanced toward hops

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.

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. Pretty solid 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.
