Orange-gold in colour, this lynchpin of craft ales enjoys a healthy reputation among ale-swillers, and has a healthy, rich head when poured.

With lemony and slightly pineapple-ish hops on the nose, there is a gentle roast malt undertone.

On the tongue, lush malt and orange peel dominate, with a medium-light mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

Light tartness and bitterness on the finish, leaving a light film from the hops, but not as strongly as other punk-rock IPAs in the craft segment.

A true craft alternative to the loveable Goose Island IPA with all the same character.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
