First had: on tap at the brewery

Poured a hazy bronze color with a small white head that retained as a ringlet, leaving dots of lacing on the glass. The aroma was money...very nice and distinctive nose of lemon-lime, with an appropriately subdued malty sweet base. Things kind of fell apart in the taste, unfortunately. Departing from the lush aroma, the taste was quite malty up front, grainy, followed by an unripe mango skin bitterness, that finished with a somewhat metallic aftertaste. If this was an IPA, it was a messy one. Body was light-medium, and other than the aroma, I didn't find this one to be very good overall.

Review from notes when I had it at Max's (had on tap at the brewery too)

A: Muddy brown amber with lacing.

S: Pine and resin.

T: Lots of hops with some herb in it. Strong pine resin. Nice mellow mango sweetness.

M: Even carbonation throughout. Nice feel.

O: Their year-round IPA, but a knockout.

(this one had Mango Juice, cilantro and Pacific Jade hops)
