3.7/5 rDev -2.1%
Picked this up last week in Totowa, never having this before or any beer from Free Will for that matter. This had to be one of the strangest labels that I've ever seen on a beer but what was on the inside turned out to be rather pedestrian. With so many IPA's out there, this wouldn't necessarily be a bad choice but there wasn't much about this that made it stand out from the others.
This had a hazy, goldenrod hue to it with a moderate head that quickly settled and just a bit of lacing to accompany that. Lots of "weed" in the smell, reminiscent of a Green Flash beer. Some tropical fruit, floral notes, and some tangy tangerine in the back. Even a bit of chili-chocolate to liven things up, perhaps? It's there along with a oily consistency and strong hop burn that strikes early and fades away to some grassy notes in the back. This was a bit too earthy for me but still a somewhat easy beer to drink because of how subdued the alcohol was.
It was present but by no means was this overtly strong or a beer dominated by the hops. The carbonation could have been present a bit more and this finished dry but overall, this beer was pretty easy to quaff and a decent take on the style. With so many other IPA's out there, this didn't stand out from the pack but even after downing this, I still can't figure out what's up with the label...

Copper slightly hazed appearance looks great billowing head off white cream color, with fine even textured dispread lacing on my pint glass. Aroma ripe mango, citrus in the backend, a bit of earthy character fades with each sniff. Flavors cereal grains, sweet malts, hop fruit as in mango, citrus, and a bit of ripened pineapple balances out in the backend with some hop bitterness and powdered yeast bready quality. Overall impressive IPA from PA, I can't wait until this gets perfected and refined it will be firing on all cylinders.
