This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a decent looking semi-hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Light stringy lacing slid into the beer. The smell started off with a light tropical citrus to a light pine. The taste copied the smell leading into the aftertaste and a dry bitter finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable sticky bitterness over my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good IPA, might not be one to go with food, but I’d have again.

Apricot colored with a low white head that settles out quickly and disappears. Low and citrusy aroma, notes of orange pulp and rind. Similar flavors, plus subtle honey malt, and a crisp hop bitterness. Lots of tingling on the tip of the tongue, partly from carbonation and partly from hop bitterness. Not overly complex hop flavors. Moderate bitterness. Good, not great.
