You can definitely smell the cascade and taste the simcoe. It's light to medium with quarter inch head. It's a beautiful light copper color (probably crystal 20 or 30 in the malt). Overall great IPA. Will definitely be added to my regular rotation (if it ever gets any cheaper)!

Undated bottle into an IPA glass. Hadn't planned on reviewing this (didn't love JuJu and didn't have high hopes for this), but it surprised me, so here we are.

Look: slightly cloudy rich yellow. Small head.

Smell: delicious tropical fruits. On the sweeter side, but I don't get the sense this is going to be a sugar bomb.

Taste: a near-perfect balance of bitter and sweet. This reminds me of some of my all-time favorite IPAs from Port Brewing—both in taste, and in how unabashedly it puts hops to the fore. Delivers on the tropical fruit flavors promised in the nose. Also some more grassy hop notes, along with some mild floral character.

Feel: light-to-medium body and dry. Pretty sharp and well-carbonated.

Overall: I was expecting more of an East-coast malt-forward IPA (or worse yet, a Midwest sugar bomb), but this is fantastic!
