Very nice offering from this great local brewery. Nice golden-orange slightly hazy color with some mild head and lingering lacing. Smells mainly of floral hops, but tastes of more citrus zest hops with that characteristic bitterness. I can make out grapefruit, orange and papaya, maybe a trace of mango. Also some nice weaker floral hops, bread and malt to nbalance everything out. Nice smooth mild finish and mouthfeel. Good amount of carbonation. Highly recommend!

Pours a clear golden orange. Lacing lingers on the pint glass for the duration. Nose is too subtle, almost none existent. I picked this up in February and bio indicates summer availability. Bottle date shows Jan 16, 2017 so i know it's only 3 weeks old. Should be a stronger nose. Bitter piney, grapefruit taste . Not bad, but I prefer other Shorts IPA's like Huma and Hanging Frank's (prefer this name over Controversial Ale). Nice crisp finish, without a strong after taste. Good, not great beer. Glad I tried it.

Pours orange-gold. Medium, thick, white, long lived head. Lacing.

Smells citrus, grassy, light pine, slight bready malt and hints of vegetal

Tastes grapefruit peel, citrus, light malt. Finish is dry and strong bitter pine finish. Lighter medium body and smooth medium carbonation.
