3.89/5 rDev -5.8%
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.
