look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a perfectly clear golden straw color. Head is nice and white and frothy...about two fingers worth. Retention is lacking some and no real lacing

Big and fruity fresh smell. Lots of sweetness going on. Big pineapple and mangoes. Just a slight touch of alcohol.

I can definitely tell this is fresh with a lot of the grain showing its face in the back ground. Taste is less pineapple but more mango. It has an unripe mango or peach to it. After a few sips the fruit become more prominent over the grain and when i breathe through my nose the citra hops attack it.

Slick mouthfeel that leaves my mouth smacking with stickiness.

It's very drinkable but i wish it were just a bit crisper. If this is a variant of the IPA i wish it was that crisp but with the same flavor. I don't think i have enough experience with wet hops to compare to others but i have tasted the so fresh so green green and i think i liked that just a notch more.
