4.4/5 rDev +19.9%
A very solid IPA by a very solid brewery! These guys never disappoint and this one is true to form. A very clean beer with great smell and a taste that builds to a good hop finish. If you like American IPA this is a fine choice. I will enjoy several of these while they last!

A - Clear, pale yellow color. I think this is the lightest beer I've ever seen. Poured a creamy 1/2 finger head. Nice sticky lacing.
S- Very nice. Really strong aromas. Tropical fruits, orange, sweet grapefruit, earthy spice, lemon, and some dank. The malt is in there too.
T/M - I had to ponder throughout... not that it was that complex, but it was definitely a mix I hadn't experienced before. To me, the mouthfeel was more intimately tied to flavors than you usually experience. It has this light/smooth thing going on... almost like the tropical fruits, citrus, pine, spice, caramel, and bready malts are flowing just underneath a thin, resinous, oily cream... I'm guessing that is the influence of the wheat.
O- I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. The 83 rating led me to believe this was going to be something else, entirely. I loved how the mouthfeel, flavors, and aromas played together in this beer! If it comes back around next winter, I promise I will have again.

Pours light golden with small foamy head that quickly dissipates., leaving a small amount of lacing on the glass. Hoppy, citrus smell with hints of pine/grass. Bitter, hoppy up front taste. Slight citrus taste but overall very grassy. Hop bitterness gets stronger and leaves a strong bitter aftertaste that persists.

A - Pours a light crystal clear yellow with 1 finger white. Average retention
S - Very nice! Great use of hops. Lots of lemon and citrus. Slight grassy aroma as well.
T - Man oh Man! This is the beer for me. Love the floavor of this beer. Hops level is perfect. Lemon and other citrus. Again, slight grassiness to the beer. Malts blanced the hops nicely as well.
M - A light beer that goes down smooth. This one could hurt you. I think i could drink a case
O - Wow, I loved the flavor of this beer. Something about it was perfect to me.

Pours a straw hazy yellow, half finger of white head. Looks like grapefruit juice.
Smell is 100% citrus, grapefruit, lemon, citrus peels maybe a little grassy hop character.
Taste is really impressive, was not expecting this based on the scores, tropical and citrus are all over this thing, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, light orange and tangerine, just really juicy, slight pepper like spice, like wheat character, pear and yep even more grapefruit in the bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light but built up do to the heavy carbonation, finishes rather dry.
WOW, was not expecting this based on the score, maybe it is suffering from a little of NB biased... People seem to shit all over them because of there size and whatnot... Which I never understood as SN gets nothing but praise and they are even larger.
If you like a good Citrus, grapefruit, tropical bomb at a even better price scoop it up.
Will be scooping up a 12 or two of this!

A-clear pale gold color with a large snow white head, adn plenty of carbonation coming up the glass as it sits.
S- deep hop smell that is very floral, grassy smell, with a citrus smell in the background
T-hop flavor is not as strong as the smell, great bitter aftertaste that smooths out quickly and leaves you with a dry citrus crisp finish.
M-smooth from the high carbonation that still bubbles in your mouth after you swallow
O-enjoyed the balance of the beer. The hops did not overpower you yet was intense, just not as overpowering as some IPAs.
