Appearance: Poured a little cloudy with an average head.

Smell: I got piney hops in the nose.

Taste: Not as hoppy as I anticipated from the smell. More disappointing: I’m getting wet cardboard on my tastebuds.

Mouthfeel: Medium body.

Drinkability: Just too sharp in the aftertaste and unbalanced for my palette. Maybe a bad bottle? One thing I really liked: the bottle art. Upbeat typography and art set an optimistic tone.

The beer is light amber in color with a white head. Some citrusy hop notes, candied orange peel, bready malt, and a bit of toffee. There is just a hint of peach in the background. The flavor is on the sweet side. Toasted bread, toffee, and some bread. Very light bitterness and pine character. A bit of candied orange peel and faint grapefruit. A mediocre IPA at best.

Great smelling beer which jumped out at me as soon as I cracked the bottle open. Lots of carbonation on the pour. Color and smell of a typical IPA. Taste was disappointing at first and not as hop forward as the smell suggested. Not one of my favorites, but would be good for a food pairing with fish tacos or something. Very light tasting beer that I imagine accomplishes what Fig set out to do when crafting this beer. A good APA but enjoy drinking Figueroa's Hurricane Deck or Lizard's Mouth IPA more.

Dense amber in color, the ale carries a hearty haze that's capped with a frothy ivory foam. Firm withstanding, its foam structures slowly dissolve back into the beer. Spotting the glass with lace, the beer looks like a richer IPA.

Sweet and fruity to start the beer's character begins with caramel-dipped citrus and tropical fruit. Somewhat honey-like in taste, texture, and aroma the beer goes from floral and perfumy to soft resinous bitterness and semi-dryness to close. A middle palate chocked full of "Tropical Punch" taste retains sweetness and pushes back on the would-be bitter dryness. But the later bitterness is pithy with grapefruit and stemmy with wood oils. Wavering only mildly on its malty weight and soft butterscotch feel; the ale prefers a more balanced attitude and softer grip on the gullet.

Poppy's medium body lingers deep into the session and resists the classic dryness and bitterness that American IPAs prefer. The beer's warm, crisp, or clean finish is also lightly compromises by a light buttery texture.
