12oz bottle poured into tulip
A: Golden, copper, maple colored brew, with some carbonation that peeked with a one finger white head that is gone before ya know it. Light comes through easily, has a nice glow.
S: Sweetness mixed with pine and juicy esters. Lots of tropical fruit up front, sweet sweet pineapple that fronts hard and brings along light citrus peel, parts of mango and some juicy nectar.
T: Follows the nose quite well, keeps on the juicy path without bringing much bitterness into the equation. Pine-wood façade slides into the middle mouth riding the coat tails of sunrise smoothie forward flavor. Citrusy – but lightly – notes of papaya. No real dryness or boozy character, and very little malt skeleton, could be more balanced, but still crisp. The finish comes up just so slightly herby, clean-fresh-coriander.
M: Really nice body, medium-full, with pleasant carbonation. Aftertaste is clean and miraculously dry, but also sweet.
O: Tropical, great tasting, and crisp. Very refreshing and with excellent drinkability, hits the West Coast IPA spot, while hiding any ABV. I’m not super impressed, but I’m not disappointed either. I could go through a few of these

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A- Very pale gold with thin-thin white head
S- Very hop forward but not as potent as I would like. I get a mix of citrus and piney hops
T- Hoppiness I wanted from the smell comes through on the pallet. Sweet and citrusy with a nice yeasty/bready end
M- Smooth but sticky on the backside
O- Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced but still hop forward.
