Great floral aroma, similar to hopslam but a little more subtle. Taste was clean, not overly hoppy and the alcohol taste was very very tame for its percentage. Overall a solid beer, great alternative to some of the IPA's I have been drinking lately. Would definitely be something I could chill with for a while.

Pours a clear golden yellow. White head, with good lacing n the glass.

Nose is hops, all the way. Citrus hops, some caramel malts. Apricot and Lemon.

Taste is sweeter than the smell lets on. More of a malt backbone, then finishes with a fruity hops taste. The bitterness comes in late.

Finishes dry, a bit stringent. Medium bodied. Grapefruit flavor lingers.

Overall, a great IPA, but not an elite one.

This beer was fantastic! Hops and plenty of ’em! Poured a beautiful sungold color and had a quickly dissipating head with a slight bit of lacing. Leaves behind a medium malt body and lots of dry beautiful hops. The malt holds it up in the glass while the hops bite you. It has a big nose and smells great. A little citrus and clover honey on the palate and dry as well. This beer is dry hopped five times throughout the brewing process. It’s invigorating. The name is also very cool. This beer is on my list of "I gotta have some of that."
