3.88/5  rDev -0.3%

Had this in a snifter. Bottled 1/29/14.

A- Light golden body, with finger of creamy white foam, this IPA has good retention, some spotty lacing after the cap had died to a ring.

S- Raygun seeps out with aromas of dank, earthy, grapefruit-y hops. The bouquet exhibits mostly the dank profile however, and peach even makes its way out of the glass after a while..

T- The palate drinks very similarly to the nose, garlic-y dank hops with peachy notes and grapefruit. The finish includes a subtle bitterness that is close to resin-y. Nice!

Mf- The beer slides over the tongue, a little watery with a slight crispness.

O- The flavor and smell of this beer are extremely similar. It is so dank and fruity with a nice kiss of peach and grapefruit. Original flavor and delicious.

3.61/5  rDev -7.2%

Glass Used: Snifter

Appearance: A straw colored, translucent body with a lasting thick head that disperses to a thin cap that covers the entire surface.

Smell: Dank, earthy, field onion, and some light citrus. The earthy-onion is quite powerful here. Not too bad.

Taste: Dank and earth come through big on the palate. A bit of fruitiness on the back end.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin and light.

Overall: Not a bad offering. I had this with some cheddar and it paired pretty well. Enhanced the flavors of the beer tremendously.

Thought I would give this one a try since it has a promising hop profile.

Pours clear medium gold with white head and a little lacing.

Nose is pretty neutral. Slight citrus.

Taste: Definitely a nice tropical blend of pineapple and mango. A little unbalanced but still quite drinkable.

With a little more work, this could be a very good choice. With that said, the price is very reasonable and I can't find anything wrong with it.
