22oz into a tulip.
A: Pours a clear straw-gold with a nice white head.
S: Juicy mango and pineapple dominate the nose. Some mild vanilla and fresh grain from the malt base. Really fresh aroma.
T: Taste brings oily grapefruit pith, clean tropical fruit notes with a slight herbal edge, mildly sweet bready malt base underneath.
M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: This is a fantastic, juicy IPA with a clean malt base that doesn't get in the way of the awesome Crystal hop profile. Reminds me of some Alpine IPAs. I'd like to see this brewed again with some regularity.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a clear yellowish-apricot body with a strong matrix of microbubbles. There is a thick rocky white head that sticks to the glass in lumps.
S- The aroma is like opening a fresh bag of hop pellets bright and green leaf qualities.
T- The green bright woody hops have a touch of sweetness in the finish with a lightly bright pungent aftertaste. There is a nice cream flavor that comes through in the malt flavor.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight little fizz that creates a nice creamy texture as it opens.
O- The nice IPA has some interesting classic character to the hops and a nice flavor. I’m not sure it is enough to be a hero but it is one tasty pedestrian.

4.24/5 rDev +0.7%
Appearance: Good session ale. Golden with great lacing.
Smell: Lots of fresh grapefruit. One of the more citrus-oriented IPAs I've ever had.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of grapefruit. A nice caramel backbone and some grass. Medium-bodied with great carbonation
Overall: Very good IPA. Did I mention the grapefruit?
