A- Cloudy with a nice white-two finger head

S-Awesome, definitely getting the citra hops but u would swear there is actual fruit in this one. Big time Mellon.

T-Doesn't disappoint from the smell. Citra for sure and the Mellon is just enough for me where it doesn't taste overpowering. If you like the tropical/citrusy hops used in a lot of ipas today then check this one out.

M- appropriate to style. These go down very easy. Refreshing beer for summertime.

O- Great beer. Not for everyone but I'm always up to try new hops. I could see this beer hittin the spot for hopheads, fans of fruit beers, and people that just want an easy drinking beer. Possibly a love it or hate it, but I really enjoyed it.

A - Pours a dull hazy copper with a two-finger foamy off-white head. Light sticky lacing.

S - Nice aromas off orange, mango, lime, watermelon, and cantaloupe.

T - Follows the aroma with a big dose of citrus and melon upfront. Nice malt sweetness occurs mid-palate. Hops appear in the finish producing a nice floral flavor and some light bitterness.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing.

O - This is probably the best session IPA I've had. This is full of citrus flavors. Definetly recommended.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy burnt orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big mango, tangerine, strawberry, honeydew, papaya, peach, lemon/orange peel, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of mango, tangerine, strawberry, honeydew, peach, papaya, lemon/orange peel, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, tangerine, strawberry, honeydew, peach, lemon/orange peel, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. Good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
