Huge thanks to my friend Jay for the growler! Poured into a NB goblet.

A: Pours a golden amber color with good clarity and evident carbonation. The head starts off at one fingers of an eggshell color, and fades to a thin collar after a short time. Spotty patches of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Welp, it's kind of what I expected - a visceral assault of Citra hops. Melon, mango, and papaya are all quite evident on the aroma, alongside some cattiness, pine, and even some sourdough bread. Malts are lightly evident, not intruding too much on the hop profile.

T: It starts off very juicy with plenty of tropical fruits like mango and papaya, along side some peach and apricot. A healthy surge of pine bitterness injects itself into the midtaste and finish. Allowing it to warm up will introduce a touch of sugar cookie from the malt backbone. Simplistic, but with superb hoppiness.

M: Very crisp and clean, which I love in my IPAs. The finish isn't bone dry, though, which means bitterness isn't reined in like it should be. This is my ONLY complaint about this brew, and it's not nearly enough to take off points here. Carbonation is about right, giving it spectacular drinkability.

O: In the right mood, I could drink this all damn day - I know for a fact this growler will get killed quickly. With a bit less bitterness, I might have considered throwing out a few 5's here and there; as it stands, still one of the better single IPAs I've ever had.

4.48/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottle (no date) poured into my HF stemmed tulip...

A - Light orange in color with a nice frothy head. Very stick lace all over the glass and good retention throughout

S - Strong citrus aroma.... Oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, grassy

T - Huge hop bomb! More of the same citrus in the flavor, the slightest of malt in the backbone and some bready notes

M - Real light body, thin mouthfeel, hard hop bite on the finish

Overall, really reminds me of a Stone IPA. Real dank and citrusy. This is excellent and glad I got a chance to try it.

Huge thanks to mtomlins for this one.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, pine resins, floral hops, sweet caramel and light bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, bitter pine resins, light caramel and some bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Great IPA but it's just a touch too malty for my liking.
