4.03/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: The can delivers a crystal clear honey colored liquid with a solid cap that displays excellent retention and leaves a few strands behind

Smell: Floral, with tropical fruit undertones

Taste: The malt tilts toward toffee and provides a backbone that lingers from start to finish; in the middle, the hops add a resinously bitter character with an edge of tropical fruit (grapefruit and just a hint of mango and guava); in the finish, the bitterness hangs around to hold the toffee malt in check

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The malt flavor and balance are what stand out about this beer; while it is not a standout for the style, it is eminently drinkable

Thanks, Phoenix2443, for the opportunity

a beautiful clean copper pour with 2 fingers of foamy head which caused excellent layers of sticky lacing. smells of grapefruit, caramel, grass..getting a hint of sweaty gym socks , kinda weird. slightly bitter up front followed by lots of citrus flavor, a slight hint of "can" metal, lots of sweet malty backbone. a sweet ipa, but pretty tasty. medium body with moderate carbonation. the bitter finish makes this one a little bit of a sipper.

not a bad ipa but nothing to go out of your way for. this was part of a mystery trade on r/beertrade. glad i am finally getting to try some of abw beers.. have had the glass for a year without having any of their beer.

Thanks, xpimptastikx!

A very clear burnt orange with some visible carbonation running up through the glass. Small to moderate near-white head that leaves messy spiderwebs of stick down the glass. Pretty and appropriate.

An earthy and mild citrus hop character, along with bread, and a bit of honey/cracker sweetness.

Moderately bitter, with the earthy, mildly citrus hop character complementing lots of toasted biscuit character. Very drinkable.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Good, but not great.

A pretty decent sized off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear bright copper golden colored beer with fairly decent carbonation.

There seems to be a light sourness to citrus, grassy to piney hops aroma.

A nice hops bite with some citrus and some piney aspects coming to the forefront, with a little bit of some malt tastes coming through later.

A almost wet aftertaste turns to a light dryish aftertaste with just a bit of the hops notes sticking around on this medium bodied beer.

A easy drinking IPA with a decent hops presentation that has you wanting to take another swig.

Clear golden in color with a big, white head that goes down fast but leaves a good amount of lacing. Smells like citrus hops and bready malt. The malt comes out first with those citrus hops playing around on your tongue. Then the bitterness builds slowly until it lingers at a high intensity after swallowing, but the hops aren't overwhelmingly bitter thoughout. I think this is one of the most balanced and consistent ipas I've come across.
