4/14/17...pours pale gold, a little hazy, but able to see through. Dry wine nose, very faint. Crisp dark fruity flavor. White wine throughout. Pretty tasty.

Classic old-school hoppy IPA. Bitter, sure, but the right amount of bitterness - not overwhelming. Quenching when guzzled. A tasty brew. Lucky to get it on tap.

Had it on draft in a English pint. Hazy bright yellow with a thick, foamy head and great lacing. The smell is intensely citrus. The taste is strong grapefruit and orange, also prominent pine and hoppy bitterness. A very flavorful beer!
