APPEARANCE: What a lively looking beer? There are thousands of bubbles clinging to most of the surface of the inside of the globe glass. There are so many that they almost entirely block the view through this perfectly clear beer. It has a finger of white head on top made of bubbles of varying sizes. It falls fairly quickly and the lacing is so-so, but overall, this is a gorgeous beer.

SMELL: Piney and resinous with big mango and orange aromas. There is a hint of grass and maybe apricot? It is a wonderful blend of aromas that I only wish were a little more intense.

TASTE: Everything from the nose comes through in the taste as well. The tropical fruit is all there (with a touch of peach too), the citrus includes the orange, but also comes along with some grapefruit and the “green” smells come through with a lot more grass than the smell had. When a touch of semi-sweet malt is thrown into the mix it creates a beautifully complex beer that still has a very clean finish.

MOUTHFEEL: This is one of the easiest 5s I’ve ever given in the mouthfeel category. It’s mostly dry with just the perfect touch of sweet from the malt. The sparkle is solid but not nearly enough to prevent this from going down incredibly easy. The body is on the light side, but significant enough and the overall feel serves the flavor extremely well.

OVERALL: I expected a richer beer than this when I first tasted it, but that is not to say that I was disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the supreme drinkability of this beer. I really wish I had a case full of this beer rather than the one bottle I managed to get out here to Colorado. I would drink this beer any time, ever. I really hope they do it again.

Poured into tulip; golden orange with a fluffy bubbly white head, lively carbonation and some spotty lacing. Smell is lots of tropical fruit; mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, starfruit, and slight pine/bitter hops. awesome nose on this one, I love this type of IPA. Taste follows nose perfectly; clean crackery malt is obliterated by sweet tropical fruits and florals, moving into some pine and bitterness, but not enough to blunt how tasty and refreshing this beer is. Finishes crisp, a little dry, and clean, with some lingering bitterness. Excellent!

A - Dark hazy orange brown with small white head

S - Orange citrus, pine, and sweet tangerine

T - Bitter pine hits up front before sweet orange and light orange juice come through to give it a good citrus. Finish was slight pine bitterness that lingers on

M - Medium body with good carbonation. Leaves a light pine reason in the finish

O - Solid citrus IPA with good hop bitterness that lingers on in the finish.

(Served in a bow-tie)

A- This beer pours a clear apricot colored body with a thick creamy light butter cream head with a gentle carbonation supporting it.

S- The bright unripe citrus hops is full followed by a cereal and pale malt aroma that turns into a corn tortilla smell as it opens.

T- Th e full jammy unripe fruit hops have a green pith quality of ugly fruit and lime character. There is a nice touch of sweetness in the finish. The aftertaste is a pleasant green hop note that doesn't have any bitterness or pungency but is soon gone.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a great sessionable hoppy beer. The taste of hops have are really big with some nice depth and no bitterness. Very easy to drink in the summer heat.

Pours a pale golden honey with a white cap that wisps away quickly.

Distinct floral and citrus hops. Sweet malt aroma.

Citra bitterness and graham cracker. Simple IPA that delivers great balance.

I want to leave in mouth for a second or two, to fully coat mouth with the oily creamy texture of the hop though; crisp gentle hop finish. Probably a tad thicker for an American IPA i'm used to-but it's all good.

Wonderful collaboration that has succeeded. It's got the backbone of Ballast Point Sculpin and the juiciness of Flower Power. Damn tasty!

bomber poured into Guinness cup

A- Golden with tons of bubles. Nice white head about 1 finger tall
S- Hops, sweetness, earthyness
T- Not getting sharp hops. Gettig a well balanced IPA with sweet malts and hops for balance
M- Pretty standard body, not too thin or too thick

O- Tastey colaboration with FSW.

Pour is crystal clear orangish copper. Nose is huge with floral and citrus notes. Slight malt sweetness but mostly hops. Taste is magnificent. Hops offer just the right amount of bitterness to offset the malts giving breat balance. Flavors or citrus peel, pine and biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall one of my favorite IPAs on the market, though only a limited release.
