4/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a clear copper color, nice white head, low carbonation.

S - Light tropical fruit rinds (oranges, mangos, pineapple), some pine, light peppery spice and biscuity malt.

T - Light tropical fruit underneath a sharp earthy, grassy, pine bitterness. Biscuity malt is buried all the way to the bottom as this is a very hop forward beer without that dominating buttery flavor that Shipyard is known for. The buttery aspect is indeed there in small quantities but is beat down by a hefty dose of hops.

M - Medium body and leaves a coating of earthy, grassy, pine on the tongue that lingers for a good long time.

O - This is one of the hoppiest Shipyard beers I've experienced and is quite enjoyable. IMO, MF deserves more love than the current overall score of "81". It slightly loses some of that hop edge as it warms up but overall, this is a beer that should satisfy alot of hop heads. I would have no qualms keeping this one on hand in my beer fridge.

I like this. I really, really liked this. A sessionable, real, IPA. Aroma of hops, cut flowers. Color of copper and unfiltered hazy. Taste rises to the occasion. A malty start, with the bitters follow up. Does everything simply right. Good work.
