A glass of cloudy white grapefruit juice with a fluffy white head that fades but leaves a wind band of lacing. Bubbles continue to rise from the nucleation site of the glass throughout the drink. Nice scents of flowers, grapefruit, sweet malt and pine are noticeable. The taste is mostly bitter grapefruit pith and pine up front with a nice wave of mild sweetness and flowers at the end. Nice body and creamy mouthfeel in this beer. This is a really fine beer.

Canned 7/7/17; drank 7/21/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice white head; frothy tree-rung lace.

Grapefruit, dry wheat, mild cane sugar & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & faint cream flavors up front; dry wheat & faint grass notes on the finish.

Balanced & easy to drink, but with a satisfying flavor. To me, this is what a session NE IPA should aim for.

My first offering from Moonraker poured into a TH goblet glass.

L - Cloudy light orange haze. Very little froth with pour
S - So powerful. Grapefruit, apricot, pineapple etc
T - Just like the nose with a good handful of hop bitterness
F - Great carbonation with a full-boded flavor

Pours a hazy turbid bright straw yellow.nice frothy white head that laces the glass the whole way down. The nose is like a fruit basket! Fresh cut pinnaple, peaches, apricots and ripe mangos. The taste is spectacular! Extremely bright and extremely fresh. Fresh pineapple juice, peach and apricot nectar along with ripe mangos and grasses. Not overly sweet like the nose and taste might suggest but nonetheless you do pick up a solid amount from the fresh bouquet of fruits. Bitterness is just right, not extreme but enough hoppy kick to keep things interesting. Mouthfeel is smooth, rounded and somewhat creamy. Finishes crisp and very clean on your palate. You almost need to take the next sip as the flavor explosion that happens with every swig disappears quickly. This one can be dangerous as at 7% she is extremely drinkable. I absolutely love Yojo! This beer is my Jam! Cheers
