4.36/5 rDev +9%
Pours orange with some amber hues and a bit of haze. Head is about one finger and has decent retention.
Smell is great, lots of citrus, some mango a good piney backbone. Malt smells somewhat sweet through the citrus tang.
Taste follows the nose with citrus flavors laced over a moderate piney bitterness. Caramel malt is semi sweet and well balanced with the bitterness.
Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied, mild to moderate carbonation. Perfect for an ipa.
Overall well balanced tasty ipa.

Opaquely hazed dull orange body. Billowing and fluffy white head.
The aroma is grapefruit rind, a light floral lilac, and a strong grainy malt presence.
The hops almost end with the aromatics. It's really grainy and the hop
presence is mildly bitter but the grapefruit and floral notes I picked up in the nose struggled to pop.
Mouthfeel is meditate-light and a pinch slick.
Just ok to me. It started out strong but fell off quickly. I will say it drank much lighter than 8%, that's a plus. I found combat marshmallow, the stout that was bottled about the same time, to be way hoppier.

Appearance is bright and inviting.
Smells of citrus fruits, hops, and bubblegum.
Taste is very citrusy and light for an 8% beer. Hop flavor a bit dull.
Mouthfeel is a mouthful of tropical fruit.
Overall this beer is a very good balance of fruit and hops to make this beer worth purchasing again.

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass
A - really nice opaque hazy orange with 2 fingers of head that left a nice lacing on the glass after settling. Very inviting. It just looks like a citrus bomb.
S - its got a nice nose. Citrus up front. Mostly orange and grapefruit. A little pit of pine as well. No caramel or savory malt notes.
T - taste is consistent with the nose. Citrus. Orange and grapefruit. A very nice level of bitterness. It stays on the palate for a while. The hop bitterness continues through the whole experience. Very little malt even though the label boasts sweet caramel malts. You can taste the heat even though the abv is not that big. I'm guessing IBU is 90-100.
M - decent mouth feel. nice carbonation. feels light bodied. a little bit of stickiness fell as well, which I like.
O - overall this is good beer. I would buy it again. It didn't blow me away, but its a nice drinkable IIPA that you can pair with some BBQ and be happy. I personally prefer something even bigger when I'm buying an IIPA in terms of bitterness and abv.
