I give it a higher score than the average of the categories because the delicious taste lingers on. An outstanding IPA that only drawback is that it competes against HumaLupa. Buy this one, drink it and enjoy. I think the moderators here have to adjust their IBU of 159.... This beer is high, but not that high. I'll drink again

Delightfully bitter, but overly so. Another great IPA from the gang at Short's. Tastes clean and fresh without sacrificing the hops bite. Don't see it very often. Grab it while you can.

Bottled 4/20/2015

L- Pours a deep straw yellow, two finger white head, good clarity it does have some fine yeast particles.

S- Pine, citrus, and that Juicy fruit gum aroma from the Simcoe.

T- Similar to aroma but with more pine and some added floral. Hefty lingering bitterness, nice level of sweetness.

M- Medium, good carbonation, typical of the style.

O- One of the better Short's IPAs, I still wish it were a tiny bit less bitter and not as piney. The pine kinda covers up some of the fruitiness of the Simcoe.

Very similar to freedom of 78 also by shorts almost like it's little brother. Although I think freedom of 78 is better this is still a damn tasty ipa especially at 6.4 percent. Another well done ipa by shorts.

A gorgeous clear bright golden orange which upon closer inspection show yeast particles suspended in it with a inch thick white foamy head. Grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, apple, guava, and a slight piney smell, like a bouquet of tropical and citrus fruit. Taste is funky dank pine, a cracker-y bread malt, and a nice moderate mouth feel with a good amount of bitter. The taste washes over your tongue and holds on for a good amount of time after you gulped it down. There are some citrus and tropical fruit notes as well as a general smoothness also.
