3.83/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Small white head. Faint surface wisps, very little lacing, and a thin collar.

Smell - Peachy and oniony hops. A little tropical. Faint grain.

Taste - Less peachy. Less oniony too. More grapefruit. Still some tropical fruits. Cracker malt. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The best of this series so far. The best aroma from the hops.

We did the blue, red, green, and yellow xhops side by side last Wednesday.

All these xhops have a similar light straw golden color.

Excellent strong pineapple mixed with citrus smell

Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

Similar taste to smell. Somewhat harsh cloying and minty finish. The worst part. Really sticks with you. The taste does not live up to the smell sadly.

I did a little blending and really like this blended with the yellow.

poured 22oz bottle into snifter. This was bottled over a week ago.

A - Hazy light orange in color with a 2 finger white head. Fades into a thin collar around the glass and leaves many spots of lacing.

S - Big aromas of citrus, tropical, and some dank hops hit the nostrils. I pick up a sweetness akin to Pilsner malt and honey.

T - Tastes like sweet orange and very bitter grapefruit. As I mentioned, there is a slight sweetness akin to Pilsner malt and a bit-o-honey. The finish is citrus and bitter.

M - Well carbonated with a medium body and slick oily feel.

O - On par with the other TG brews I have had. Very full tropical flavor with the bitterness to quench thirst. IPA's are certainly their signature beers. Always worth hunting these down when they appear in Madison.
