Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Crystal clear perfect bronze orange. Fine microscopic carbonation, slowly rising to a solid four finger and very creamy whipped retention head. Billowing cream in the glass as it clumps with round edges and hangs real impressively. Falls a bit fast but still a real amazing looking beer.

Real fantastic aroma and bouquet. The hop angle jumps to floral notes, really perfume almost rose petal like sweetness as well. Floral and aromatic, without a big in your face rush. Some cotton candy like senses and a big juiced sensing tropical fruit note, almost sappy and thick. Really really impressive, almost feels like a trip to the candy store. Loving it.

Palate hits wonderfully. Mid palate comes with a mild big juiced mouth coating, borderline thick thinking taste, but not anywhere neary syrupy, and actually strangely light. Honey aromas come with a pepper and wonderful floral notes and mellow spruce like bitterness. Juiced thick, with a tropical and green melon notes. Real spicy sensation in the mid palate with not much aftertaste except a lingering mellow dry hop aroma that nearly gets menthol. Some sweet simple malts round it out, and some good sweet oily coating on the lips.

An absolutely killer brew, this really hits well for me and pushes all the right buttons. Some improvement possible but really splitting hairs, and honestly… don't change a thing.

I was recently sent a few West Coast IPAs in my first beer trade. The others I had heard of and knew of their reputations. This one, however, was a wildcard. Comprised of 100% Mosaic hops, this IPA is beautiful. Not to mention it was bottled less than 10 days prior.

Initially it poured a darker color than I was expecting, with a medium-size head that dissipated quickly. On the nose it strikes up a very fruity AND oniony aroma. The label reads "tropical notes of guava and ripe mango." I can see that. Those notes didn't jump out at me, it was more of a very round and "white" flavor if you will.

I let myself waft this one in for a while before I took my first sip, and I was still thrown off guard. The "high" notes of fruit were an initial bite on my palate, and the aftertaste was more reminiscent of a more malt-based IPA. The mouthfeel is fantastic on this one. Lingers around just enough to tease another quick sip, but after a few moments you're content with it on your tongue.

Overall a really delicious balanced IPA, and as far as I'm concerned I'm surprised I haven't heard of it before.

Tropical fruit and caramel sweetness. Pineapple, guava, banana. Soft bitterness, with caramel sweetness to balance. Medium body. Pretty good, but I typically go for the drier style (Sculpin, Pliny), so probably will not buy again, but I can certainly appreciate a well balanced beer. Actually, if I can get a bottle fresher than 2 weeks, i'll give it another go.
