Val brought a six-pack of these cans home for me. I’ve been seeing people give this beer high marks on social media, so I was excited to try it.

ABV: 6.9%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A crisp and aromatic West Coast IPA made with a clean malt base that allows the grapefruit, orange and pine flavors of the hops to be showcased in both the aromatics and the taste.”

Random: The can art for this beer was well done. It definitely would jump out at me on a shelf.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, dark yellow color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was bright and fragrant. Notes of grapefruit flesh and pith permeated from the glass. There wasn’t any perceptible malt on the nose. The taste started with the same citrus brightness and transition into notes of orange peel as well. At the end of the sip, it had very slight sweetness from the malt. Despite the higher ABV, there wasn’t any booze that I picked up. The body was light and crisp with generous carbonation. The finish stayed on the tongue for awhile with the citrus pith. A can of this was $2.17 ($.18 per ounce). I liked this beer a lot. It went down really easily and given the ABV, could get you in some trouble after a few because it almost drank like a session IPA. This is an IPA that I would throw in my cooler for a party.
