3.54/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy golden color. Smell of light and crisp hops. Feel is a medium IPA. Taste is again crisp with a little orange peel followed by sharp malt backbone. No information on hops or malt. Could be a good hot summer or camping IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 Oz bottle . Bottling date 2/01/19
Pours a nearly clear orange body with a white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Moderate retention. Some small lacing.

Scent is fairly prominent. Peach and pineapple at first pour. Mosaic hops abound. No malts noticed

Taste follows While there is no malt backbone whatsoever... That said, it kinda works for me ! I wrestled with the grade on this. Almost gave it a 4

Thin and crisp feel. Appropriate for the style

Interesting balance with the lack of malting. But it would work on a hot day . A fine "after mowing the lawn" type of beer.

Sat in the back of my beer fridge for about 5 months. This was the last of a sampler pack from a party. Poured dark copper with a ton of bubbles but looks more flat in the glass. Smelled of citrus just from popping the cap. Background of dried twigs on the nose. Taste is more dried leaf forward with a more mellow lemon flavor. Cool long and juicy. But a little thin at first and finishing with a medium dry pine. Overall a solid brew. Not sure why this didn't cati on. Maybe the months of accidental aging did it good.

On tap at Pietro's.

A clear light copper with a dense white head with good retention and lacing this looks solid. The nose is all hops, bright bitter and pungent, leaning heavily on pine and some citrus oils. A mild toast/ brown sugar note is present as well. The palate opens with quite a bit of bitterness, with pine dominating. There's also some candied orange peel. The mid palate has a mild frutiness as well as a light malt character. Bitter and clean on the finish, this beer is medium light in body and moderately carbonated. A mild hop oil resin stickiness is present as well Much better than I was expecting.

Clear golden orange with one finger of off white head. Some rings and splotches of lace.
Smell is dank hops.
Taste is bitter dank hops with some proper malt backing.
Mouthfeel is medium. The finish is slightly dry and bitter.
Overall an average NWIPA. Mine was a bit old though.
