This beer has it all. Great look, great taste, great feel. One of my favorite beers I've ever had. Orange juicy look, which represents its taste -- citrusy, juicy flavor.

this is the one the kids are freaking out about, as on trend as they come, mosaic and citra based new england style ipa. its great beer, especially if you have never had any of the heavy hitters in the style, which i would imagine a lot of the folks in iowa may not have. the overall quality here is, at least for me, well below some of the more acclaimed beers in this style, but this is awfully good, and if its hop juice you seek, look no farther than this one if you are in the area. its murky and dense looking for a single, not overly frothy either from the tap, this is definitely a little short on carbonation but the body is creamy yet slick at the same time, just right for these hops and better than many in this type of ipa. its all in service of the huge citra and mosaic hop complexion, which seem about equally proportioned here, nothing new this hop combo is a household name at this point, but insanely fresh and vibrant from what has to be almost exclusively dry hopping. no bitterness here at all, preserved lemon and pineapple from the can and tangerine from these hops, honey and fresh flowers too, just a bit of starch from the malt base, summery and relaxing, very drinkable. i wish it had more carbonation, but thats about it, this is really good stuff, leading the charge in this style locally for sure, and worthy of much of the praise it is receiving! probably my favorite barn town beer i had in iowa.
