12oz bottle into tulip

A: Rich golden brew that light plays off of to create a sweet glow. Several columns of bubbles stream toward the surface that was once topped with a one and a half finger light white head. Not too much lacing.

S: Surprised to pick up some light malty aroma in front of the nose with mango, pineapple and bits of earth. Notes of florals that have mild resin mixed in, hints of caramel and pine needles, some citrus zest too

T: Bitter upfront with a lot of lemon citrus, middle mouth moves the flavor right to a crystal malt that sums itself into a regally crisp finish. Just before the middle mouth sets in, there’s a juicy topical flavor – tangy lemon, orange gelato. Earthy and herbaceous - sage, coriander, ginger, lemongrass pulled together pushing the balanced malt. Good battle between bitters and sweetness, decent hop profile.

M: Carbonation is in check, medium body, balanced, crisp, pretty underwhelming aftertaste, easy drinking.

O: Balance is superb, great hop presence, both in bitterness and citrusy-sugariness. A lot of side notes play in the background that give this beer many layers, I just wish one stepped up and captured the show a little more. I’ve drank and seen this on tap many-a places. This is excellent for a basically ubiquitous IPA, but nothing special.
