3.7/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Cloudy orange pour with 1.5 finger of light tan head. Laces very well, with a heavy sheet down the backside of the glass. Nice lace rings on the front. Thin head retention.
Nose is biscuit malt balanced against mango and tropical hops. Light citrus under that. The fruit plays well with the biscuit.
Some mango sweetness creeps in at the finish, but otherwise there is just a bit of biscuit malt to balance against this. Fairly dry after the mango dissipates. ABV well hidden.
Feel is about right, but could tend to be a bit thicker against the biscuit presence.
Overall, a decent drinking IPA that I would get again.

Appearance- deep, dark golden with a wonderful head out of the can , perfectly carbonated for a pint glass.
Nose- this brew gets it right from the start. Take a whiff- Bam!! Floral notes. Citrus. Pine (my favorite). I mean it smells like you just finished with the chainsaw! Outstanding, robust, in-your-face hops. Love it.
Taste- absolutely everything is there. The archetype of what I want in an IPA: solid backbone but not sweet or overpowering malt. I assume there is some medium crystal barley but nothing too dark. Certainly no biscuit or anything that doesn't belong in a great ipa. Hops. Serious hops. I would like to know the schedule on this one but seems a great deal of early hop additions as the bitter note is prominent. Finishes with some light citrus notes and slightly zesty.
Mouthfeel- just about perfect.
Overall- I really don't know what to say other than perfect . Absolutely nailed it , West Sixth. Although I haven't tried everything, I've spent a great deal of time on IPAs since I became sold on craft beer, and this on has it all. It should hold its own against anything out there. If you're a hop head then you will crave it. Fan-freaking-tastic!
