Lots of people will tell you in the "Saa-kraa-menn-O" area that this is the best of this style we have around here. And while they are right me personally am not as big a fan as most , a definite must buy if you see it or drive to Auburn and taste it yourself. You will appreciate this beer more if you had some wack ones of this genre. I'm not a person that's crazy about the haze.

Phenomenal beer. Highest recommendation. Look at the line around Moonraker when this beer is released and it should convince you I’m not alone in my rating. My wife was a Coors Light fan but Yojo has changed her life. She never liked the taste of any IPA and she absolutely loves Yojo.

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
