Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance –Pours a hazy orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head fads over a few minutes to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is of a sweeter citrus fruit and tropical fruit mixed with good doses of grapefruit hop and a very light pine hop smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor of tangerine and some tropical fruits of mango and pineapple. Mixed with these tastes are flavors of a more bready and slightly doughy nature as well as some grapefruit hop taste. As the flavors advance more toward the initial tastes more grapefruit hop comes to the tongue as well as some lighter pine hop flavors. These flavors largely take the taste to its end where a overall citrus sweet and hop flavor linger on the tongue leaving a quite pleasant aftertaste.

Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the creamier and thicker side for a standard IPA of 6.3 % with a carbonation level that is more on the average side. Overall it feels rather nice on the tongue as the thicker body gives the sweeter fruit and hoppier flavors a good chance to be sensed by the tongue, yet the medium carbonation keeps it very drinkable and quite refreshing. It is a good combo.

Overall – A rater tasty IPA that had a fairly nice balance between sweet fruit and nice more citrus hop flavor. Worth a try if you get a chance.
