Picked up today at Erickson's Fine Wine in Eagle... Eggghhh... $5/22, when did Full Sail raise their prices so much... This would have been $4 or less last year.

Pours with a descent white head... okay lacing.. the brew is fairly clear orange... retention is a touch lacking, but who is complaining?

Nose is fruity with a good punch of tangerine and lemon zest.... a pretty pronounced pale malt presence seems out of whack for me... even a touch of a biscuity presence.

Flavor is nicely bittered up front and quickly melts into a great fruity hoppy element... Citra? Reminds me of a citra pale ale I had a few nights ago. I am striked by how balance this brew is... not as bracing as many DIPA's, but this is a damn fine brew right now.... Lingering fruitiness on the finish makes me think citrus spiked mango or melon.

Body is medium with the expected perfect carbonation.

4/4/4/4/4.5
