12oz bottle poured into tulip
A: Amber with a copper tint. Plenty of clarity letting a decent amount of light pass presenting a moderately carbonated appearance that produced a weak head, but drags along some lacing.
S: Dry nose upfront, pine and earth. Muted florals with sweet fruits, without too much citrus present; nice spice too. Lightly zesty, citrus peel, grapefruit.
T: Surprisingly malty in the forward feel, resinous, dry, ginger mixed with other spices. Hop profile is more muted that I would have anticipated. The resinous feel exchanges with subtle notes of caramel – really well balanced, almost too well balanced if that makes sense. Alternative citrus, nectarine, lemongrass – finished slightly sweet, tropical mango
M: Nice body with strong crisp mouthfeel that is refreshing. Medium carbonation plays on the tongue and imparts a zesty-dry aftertaste that is vaguely sweet.
O: Wow, not exactly what I expected. This beer is crisp a very drinkable. The malt profile here is very significant, beyond balancing the beer. Hops are around, but in the leading rolls I was expecting, but still imparting their fruity zest. Honestly this reminds me of Nugget Nectar a lot. Just because it wasn’t what I anticipated doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy. I would scoop this if you like an IPA with solid malt structure.

Another great IPA that I think everyone should try it smelled great,wasn't hard to go down and didn't leave that horrible bitter aftertaste in your mouth when your done drinking it. Just wish I would have poured it In a glass rather than straight from the bottle but other than that it was great
