Poured from bottle into hill farmstead tulip. Pours a deep bronze slightly amber color with no head but slight white rim of lacing. Amazing aroma of mango juicy hop with slight malt. Nice hop flavor...again juicy mango with a tropical flavor as well...some nice light malt balance. Its a little thin and lacking on body but it is a lighter brew. All around a great session brew with a lot of flavor.

A- pours a clear golden color with a small white head, reducing to just a skimming layer, short lasting lace

S- citrus hops with an earthy & herbal undertone, fresh cut grass with some dank hemp seed

T- sweet and malty up front with some graininess, notes of lemon-grass, the hops aren't really noticeable until the finish, lemony and pine, dry & slightly bitter finish

M- light-med body with low carbonation and foamy mouthfeel, clean and smooth finish, easily drinkable

O- pretty good flavor for the low ABV, not as much bitterness as a typical IPA, but it could easily be a session beer. For a hit summer day, this would be a fine choice

This is a great session ale. It is also a great IPA. Apparently it does have some flaked maize in it which helps give it a sweet and crispy finish. This really accentuates the hops that make it a great IPA. Plus, it's always great when you can have a few and still drive home.

3.15/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, golden-yellow in color with a fizzy, white head.

Smell: Pine smell, grass smell, very present smell of hops.

Taste: Fresh, vibrant, sticky hops with a hint of sweet malt in the finish. Very present hops flavor, as an IPA should

Moutfell: Never too hoppy where it's cloying or dry. The carbonation adds a good balance.

Overall:I am not a huge fan of IPAs, personally, but that does not mean this is a bad beer. I thought for an IPA, it was good

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, mango, pine, toasty malts and sweet caramel.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, slight piney resin, toasty malts, faint caramel. Fairly light bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
