Had on tap at Thai Me Up. Review from notes.

A: Pours a darker copper color with a small off-white head on top, decent retention and lacing.

S: Wow, extremely fruity. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, and papaya.

T: Very similar to the aroma, just a blast of tropical fruits, chiefly grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine.

M: Medium bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Very easy drinking.

O: A really nice beer, tons of citrus fruit which is something I am always looking for.

Fresh growler, opened in Portland Oregon.

A - Pours straw colored with amber edges, a thin but frothy white foam on top. Crystal.

S - Bruleed grapefruit, kumquat, resinous pine, & sweet biscuit.

T - Tight, bright and bitter, grapefruit pith, lemon, long lingering bitterness.

M - A nice, even body with surprising carbonation, given the growler transport.

O - A very tasty, well-executed rendition of the style. Next Level, I'd say. Glad I got to try it!

L: Clear amber/gold with a touch of haze. Good lacing, not much head, but that was likely due to the pour.

A: Big, sweet citrus/floral hops, pretty fruity. A slight maltiness is also present, but mainly hops.

T/M: Smooth bitterness upfront, moves into big sweet citrus with grassy pine complexities. The malt is subtle but provides just enough backbone to keep things in check. Smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation lead to great drinkability, especially for the abv.

Overall, a great hoppy treat. Good complexity and balance, and a really fruity citrus hop character. I love getting this beer when I come to Jackson.

Had this beer on-tap at Thai me Up Restaurant in Jackson Hole, WY.

Appearance- It poured a light copper color into a 16oz glass and retained a minimal head.

Smell- Intense hoppy floral aroma

Taste- Amazing hops, hops, hops, with a zesty crisp finish

Mouthfeel- Subtle carbonation with a smooth buttery texture

Drinkability- Though the minimal head and subtle carb. may lead you to think this beer is sub par; it's not! Never have I experienced such a magnificent IPA. The hops and citrus notes leave your palette wanting more. Delicious!
