On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange. Smells a little bit dank and cat pissy. Tastes of citrus, herbs, grape, and more of that simcoe cat piss. Doughy pale malt. Dies off to a nice grapefruit bitterness. Medium light. Excellent.

Not quite as good as Crank, but then this is more of a session IPA; so given that it's very impressive. It's also very drinkable, I brought this to a bottle share and it was very well received.

On tap at cycle. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a thick pale yellow with a finger and a half of slightly off white head. Great lacing is left on the glass.

A: Just a huge hop nose with notes of pineapple, orange rind, and pine. The simple malt bill takes a big back seat. The Nelson hops are prominent.

T: Follows the nose. Really a perfect blend. Fixie and freewheel are great on there own, but this dry hop blend is just simply outstanding. I can't get enough of the Nelson!! It's a bitter bomb for sure but in a fantastic way.

M: Again, just about perfect. Medium body and great carbonation.

O: before I had this I thought Julius might be the best ipa I've had. I am now rethinking that position. I only wish I could have filled a couple growlers. This one is a must!
