UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 On tap at Worthy Burger. The keg they had kicked in 5 hours. Everyone was ordering this back to back! So good.Arrived with a 3 finger white pillow top head that faded to some nice lacing. It’s a cloudy bright orange.

Nose is full of a great balance of wheat, pine and orange zest. I detect a bit of Simcoe and some jolly rancher sweetness.

Taste omg. Srsly Shaun? Whoa. Incredible. Not since I first tasted Abner a year ago or Society 5 in the Fall have I tasted an IPA that has so much simplicity and perfection. It’s this simple bright citrusy IPA with a very clean almost sparkling water finish. In between is this explosion of juicy hops, a hint of spice and almost a borderline grapefruit acidity with citrus that could be confused with pineapple.

Despite being 6%, it has enough alcohol to tell you this is an IPA. It’s the simplicity of Edward with juiciness of society 5 and the bitterness of abner all rolled into one and I love it. Wow.
