Big ups to Kenric! Can't believe I've never had this before!

Lightly hazy orange body, off white fire of head, great retention and lace. Aroma was bright with citrus and tropical fruits, pine and flowery aromas. Clean bready malts. Medium bitterness, juicy citrus and lemon zest, mango, pine resins and fresh cut grass. Light bready malt backbone. Medium body, rich and oily, clean bitterness, insanely drinkable.

Just Outstanding is fitting.

Pours a nice orangey straw color, with a little haze. The head is nice with some creaminess to it. Smell is pretty classic american hoppiness; citrus, pine, etc. It's not really strong, but it's quite nice! The taste doesn't quite live up to the smell though. It's good, but the hops just aren't there the way I wish they were and it's maybe a tad on the bitter side too. Mouthfeel is good in all respects. Overall, this is a really good ipa and I'd be happy to drink it any time, but I feel like it could be easily tweaked a bit to make it better. Just a little more hop forwardness in the taste to match the smell. Oh well, it's probably a good thing that every brewer doesn't think exactly the same way I do...

22 oz. bottle from Mammoth Liquor. Lots of caramel in the aroma with some citrus hops, light mango, and faint pineapple. It pours slightly hazy amber with a small white head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a light watery caramel fruitiness. Almost all the flavor comes in the finish with an increased caramel presence and a moderate dose of grapefruit hoppiness. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and light carbonation. Awesome IPA!
