Despite clocking in at over 100 IBUs, this is definitely a hop-forward yet well-balanced and enjoyable IPA. A sunset-inspired orange-amber color in the glass, the bouquet opens with surprisingly bright aromas of citrus supremes, sweet grass, caramel malt and hop oil. The oily, round mouthfeel offers more bitter flavors of orange oil, grapefruit pith, pine resin and preserved lemon, packing an astringent punch that carries through to the spicy, drying finish. Ample carbonation keeps the palate from feeling too dank and heavy, while the alcohol leaves a slight warming sensation on the close. Lauren Buzzeo
