Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite.

Had it on draft at PISA. I thought it was horrible. I have no idea how this brewery has made inroads in PA

Perfect! I found this gem at my local distributor. It was a new brew for my area, so I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. It's everything I want in an IPA. Decent ABV, great citrus taste, no weird aftertaste. The logo and design is even cool. I will buy this brew again and I highly recommend to any IPA fan.

L- pours orange with white lacing. Not transparent but not too hazy either.
S- aroma is faint citrus fruit.
T- upfront there are notes of grapefruit, orange, faint mango. That gives way to malt and hoppy bitterness. The finish is way too dry for my taste.
F- decent mouthfeel, not too watery.
O- this is good but not great. It is also an example where freshness makes a big difference. I’ve had this beer only a few days old on draft and it is pleasant. The citrus and fruit comes through and helps balance the taste. But out of a can a few months old the fruit flavors are muted and the less pleasant aspects of the beer dominate to the point where it isn’t worth drinking unless there are no other good options.

tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish

Poured a seethru orange body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is citric with some grapefruit and minimal hop bitterness. Light and crisp, a somewhat bitter juicy hop presence of citric and grapefruit is noticeable and the beer has a crisp, dry finish. Balanced IPA that combines sweetness and mild hoppiness for a light and enjoyable beer.
