after all the acclaim, i have to say i had higher hopes for this one, although that being said, i am stoked to see some draft from them in colorado, i hope more is on the way, always good to have some of these hyped up beers come through. this is another juice bomb, and while its good, its also not that good, at least its awfully samey, and i can think of dozens in the style that taste just like it, and also dozens that are superior, this seems sort of unrefined and raw to me, objectively not amazing, although the trip from florida out here likely didnt do it any favors. as much as folks try, sometimes hops just dont travel all that well, especially the hazy ones, just no shelf life here at all, but staleness isnt really the issue. the beer is all dry hopped, slick and oily feeling without much bitterness, and made to be a little heavy by the high amount of sediment that remains in it, it would be better if it were cleaned up some, at least a little bit, this is pretty rugged. elements of it i love, the hops profile is nice, totally citra driven for my palate, its absolute essence, almost too much of a good thing, but its resolved by the end of it. doesnt warm up great, green at vegetal by that point. i dont mean to sound too critical, this is fine ipa, but i dont think it lives up to expectations, tastes like countless others to me, and just lacks that obvious quality element i personally need to make this style appealing anymore...

Canned 6/22/18; drank 7/3/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big off-white head; frothy tree-rung lace.

Grapefruit, orange rind & dandelion notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel. Grapefruit & dandelion flavors up front; orange rind dryness on the finish.

A bit dry & tangy; flavorful & drinkable, but not one to track down.

4 oz brewery pour. A tasty IPA with lots of clean grapefruit and orange juice. Bright and very bitter, slightly resinous. Kind of one noted. Looking for more depth here but it's still good. Nose of orange and grapefruit pith. Slightly hard to finish but I'll get there.
