Bottle as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours clear golden orange with a big fluffy and creamy white head. Very pretty. Nice floral aroma that had some hay, lots of sweet mango, light grapefruit, citrus peel, nice lightly sweet malts in the backdrop. Flavor is grass, a hint of mango, sweet generic malts, a bit of funky hop presence, and a slightly off finish. Medium plus bitterness. Medium light bodied, plus carbonation, dry of the finish. Overall a perfectly pleasant IPA that would be very very good if not for the tinge of off flavor in the finish. Worth drinking.

Grapefruit, resin, pine, tangerine, lightly catty notes, and a hint of caramel malt form the aroma. Tropical fruit notes of mango emerge. Fairly complex hop character. Flavor reveals more resin dominance at the base, with pine carrying into the bitter finish. Toasted malt serves only to tie the hop flavor together. Grapefruit pith and tangerine are far overpowered by the resiny hop onslaught. It's more bitter than I prefer, with a bit of harshness at the finish. Loved the aroma, but wish the fruit had carried through more prominently. The finish kills it for me.

A potent and aromatic beer that is full of lovely, heady hop flavor. This is a top hops beer, with a nice nose and a really strong mouthfeel of bitterness that is not lingering and overpowering. For a low ABV IPA, it is has a lovely profile and it is significantly unique. A very enjoyable, thick flavor of hops, grapefruit and citrus notes covered a nice delectable malt base. Very impressive selection.
