Trying to keep up with local beer and reviews, this is an IPA from Grand Teton. This brewery is just up the road from me, I have frequented this establishment. This Hoplexity Volume 2, this series is rated very good. The beer is 44 degrees and served in a pint glass. The pour of the beer produced a two-fingered head. The white foam is airy and creamy. The head retention of the beer is excellent. As the beer's head dissipated, it left some lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is SRM 4, pale gold with straw yellow hues. This beer is somewhat cloudy.

The beginning aromas from the beer are pine, toasted malts, and grapefruit. Nosing further in the glass, I smell oranges, fruity esters, floral, resin, biscuit, toasted bread crust, hay, and a hint of honey.

The flavors in the beer are oranges, pine mango, dank, papaya, pineapple, a scent of herbal, floral esters, resin, light grapefruit, and biscuit.

The mouthfeel of the beer is creamy and astringent.

The body of the beer is medium, medium-low carbonation, and medium finish.

The beer taste like NEIPA with a WCIPA flair. The appearance of this beer is beautiful. The aromas and the taste do not entirely line up. I get more fruity flavors and more WCIPA aromas. I think this beer is a hybrid of IPAs. It is a solid offering from Grand Teton, any IPA enthusiast should try at least once. I have consumed a six-pack and did enjoy them.

12 oz can from Brewers Haven. Pale golden , thin, patchy head. Light bready, fruity, citrus aroma. Taste features gentle citrus, biscuit malts. Pretty light on the palate. All the best characteristics of an APA and a hazy

Hops! The flavor is all hops. Great aroma, a light orange foam. Has a general feel of the mountains where it’s brewed, dazzling, but subtle at the same time. Not for the faint of heart where hops is concerned.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pine and toasted caramel. It tasted of toasted caramel sweetness, orange and a sharp bitterness.

after going a long time without seeing or having anything new from grand teton, i am stoked to be finding more and more of them around, especially on the hoppy side. this is another hazy one, i guess everyone has to do one of these now. at least this is a pretty one, soft cloudiness rather than dense sediment, and in a pale color that still has a little glow to it, foggy not so thick, and a nice head on the pint from the tap. smells good and fresh to me, almost mouthwatering even, but it also smells a little generic, like a whole lot of others in this style, which has been my chief criticism of it, so many samey beers now. i get a slightly tropical profile, like maybe some limey galaxy in with a more common mosaic type, but its hard to specify really, as its not disjointed but rather a unified rush of hop character in nose and taste, subtle mango, lemon, and pine to it, all very fresh. i like the feel too, its smooth and not as heavy as some of these can be, more of a pint beer than a one and done, which is a nice change of pace. wheaty i would suspect, but no forced heft here at all, and this ends up kind of light and springy. a tasty beer, better than a lot of them, but not different or distinct enough to be special, and really not what i know and love grand teton for, but i knew they would execute this well, and they did.
