First off I wanna rate this a little higher but can't with the new rating system!Ok this pours a dull medium golden with a thinner wispy white head.Some tangerine and orange in the nose along with a light toast and biscuit malts,on the dryer side malt-wise.A good amount of carbonation and crispness in the feel with real "green" leafy and herbal hoppiness,again a nice crisp lightly toasted malt base makes me wanna drink more.

Enjoyed this beer at Cigar City's Hunahpu's Day 2016 in Tampa, FL. I tried this after a lot of big and heavy Imperial Stouts and I found the big dose of citrus to be refreshing. Overall, I thought it was a solid IPA.
