Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our single hop wheat IPA, brewed with all Citra hops. Lighter in color and lower in a.b.v. than a typical American IPA, this beer has just the right amount of hop flavor and aroma. Completely satisfyingly awesome in its crispiness and well-rounded hopaliciousness. This beer might just be your Rushmore.

Whipped up, agitated head cresting over two fingers, bone white, big dimples across the surface, nothing notable about the retention, acceptable, lacing is more splatter than anything else, no streaks. The liquid is a filmy orange tinged golden color, consistent throughout, swiftly paced bubbles, on the fat side and no beads formed. The floral notes in the nose are quite pretty, soft orange zest, even the pine seems gentle, stiffens every so slightly from the underlying graininess which eventually yields to freshly baked breadiness, the fruit mainly pineapple, nectarine to peach but doesn’t achieve distinct separation. Medium-bodied, initial foaminess helps spread it across the palate before it turns dry and slightly tacky. Zippy blood orange to tangerine citrus abounds, more peppery here and the pine crisper as well. Tarry earth and moderately wet leafy matter bring a mild funk. The rose hips led floral element lacks the breadth found in the nose. More biscuit to scone than softer breads. Here too the papaya, pineapple, peach fruit more subtle than preferred. Overall, its simplicity is its strength and weakness. Very poundable.

Comes in a hazy, translucent orange color with a big, pillowy white head. Near perfect retention, with sheets of lacing left behind.
The aroma is sweet overripe candied orange, orange marmalade, sweet bready malt, hints of mango and pineapple, floral.
Sweet overripe orange upfront, with orange jam and orange candy throughout; the malt is big and bready, fairly sweet, lightly toasty; resinous and sticky on the finish, with a weird spice note like cinnamon or gingerbread, and slightly grassy and piney.
The mouthfeel is medium and slick, fairly well carbonated, oily and resinous with lingering hop oils.
