A - Chrome yellow - crystal clear, modest head, wonderful lacing

S - Earthy pines, but also grapefruit rinds

T - light sweet fruits upfront - mango apricot - smooth transition to a long robust hop finish accompanied by some warmth

M- Creamy, fruity, lacking any heaviness.

Simple IPA - in that there is no heavy backbone, but so well crafted. Smooth with a perfect orchestration of flavors. Another well done brew from GL.

Pours a pale orange with a fluffy, slowly dissipating one-finger head. Moderate lacing. Aroma of orange zest and honey. More malt character than hop.
Taste starts out slightly sweet with caramel notes. Slight hop bitterness at the finish. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice change from American IPAs!

Great tasting ipa.I believe I will look for this beer again.Excellent citrus aroma and strong hops flavor.Not surprised though it was the last of its stock on shelf.the hops flavor was near perfect bitter,that I enjoy. but also just sweet enough to compliment a great steak.
