750 mL growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Hazy golden yellow. Small white head. Wispy surface.
Smell - Tons of simcoe. Deeper whiff reveals mango and tropical fruits. I don't love simcoe, but this smells great.
Taste - All hops. Simcoey grapefruit at first. Grainy cracker malt. Switches dramatically to citra-like hop flavors in the finish. Tastes like mangoes in the end.
Mouthfeel - Light. Well carbonated and a touch of bitterness.
Overall - It takes a lot for a simcoe IPA to win me over, but this did.

Pour is a hazed golden amber with a bubbly white head. Nose is powerful citrus and grapefruit hops. Subtle grain notes and a hint of a malt backbone. Taste is so gentle and focused, tropical fruits everywhere, mango, grapefruit, peach skin. Light grain notes. Bitterness is present through the finish with a fairly inviting palate, extremely soft body, crisp clean finish, tropical fruits gently linger. This stuff is darn good.
