a very good ipa, relying on tropical southern hemisphere hops to make this distinct, and it works. its not the juiciest and brightest illustration of some of these varietals, but its really good for what it is, and honestly these guys have been getting better and better with their beer lately, especially the hoppy stuff. looks like an american ipa, slightly rust tinted golden beer heady and patiently carbonated. aroma of oranges and melon from the hops, a touch of pink bubblegum, and basically no yeast profile at all. the beer isnt real bitter, resinous and sweet like some of the west coast style ipas instead, which i think flatters the already fruity hop complexion in this one. i could use just a touch more carbonation, it settles after it comes out of the tap pretty fast, and is just a little slow for me. i like the medium body though and the finish is long lasting and delicious, making my mouth water for more. very solid ipa here, cool use of distinctive hop varietals for sure.
