Thanks for sharing Todd!

A - This IPA is mostly clear with a faint haze to the golden yellow color. The tall elephant tusk-hued head kicks lace all over the glass.

S - Big mango and melon citrus American hop aroma suggests Simcoe while resin pine floats through the background. Notes of solvent alcohol poke out in the back with sweet biscuity caramel malt.

T - Big mango exotic fruitiness and little resin to the finish, Lemon-like citrus gives the caramel malt backbone nice balance. Tasty.

M - Medium-light bodied and citrusy with a crisp feel and moderately bitter, dry finish. This IPA is smooth.

O - A nice citrusy IPA with great balance and tasty, clean finish. Very good.

A - pours a hazy marigold color. A frothy white head, about 2 fingers worth, sits on top with good retention. Leaves spotty lacing against the glass.

S - Nose is teeming with ripe tropical fruits. Pineapple, papaya, and mango come to mind along with tangerine and orange peels. Slightly piney and floral character. a wisp of bread crust and wildflower honey in the background.

T - Crisp lightly sweet malt profile up front. Lots of fruit character. Mostly mango and papaya with a soft undercurrent of bitter orange peel and pine needles. Finish is lengthy with a brisk lemon pith acidity.

M - on the lighter side of medium bodied. frothy carbonation which seems to be on the higher side.

O - Excellent IPA. I wish we got this on the east coast. Something I could see myself buying routinely.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice crisp medium gold colour, showing nice lacing and film, moderate carbonation.

Smell is full of pungent fresh hops, fruity grapefruit and slight resin. A floral character, very lively. Potent, complex, interesting.

Taste has grapefruity hops, a light viciousness. Plenty of fruitiness and hop character that only really gets bitter on the end, malts mostly subdued, finishes really cleanly, pine and hop bitterness. A really nice all round flavour, delicious.

Mouthfeel is luscious, carbonation is at a great level to show off the beer and give a full pleasing feel, dry and peppery on the end.

A delicious West-Coast IPA that is quite hard to find fault in. Really crisp and satisfying, hops are great and quite well balanced, drinks very well.
