Tap at Toronado SD. Poured a clear straw/light yellow with excellent sheety white lace. Aroma is unreal, beautiful NZ hops shining forth: lots of rose wine, fresh grapefruit, fresh strawberries, peach, even fresh mint leaves. Taste is earthy hops, lots of butternut squash, grapefruit rind. Would love to try this again. 8/4/7/4/14=3.7
22oz bomber. Pours a clear yellow with a dense bright white head. Excellent lacing. Unreal aroma of fresh nectarines, raw mango flesh, Thai mango and sticky rice. Taste is rich, earthy mango flesh, dank Columbus hops, earthy/chewy hops. Very earthy, squashy, rich mango throughout. Un-f*cken real. So good. 9/4/8/4/15=4.0

A: Pours very yellow with a slight golden hue to it, was quite surprised with the color of this IPA, it looks more like a blonde ale, but it still looks good.
S: Tropical fruits, spice, pine, bitterness, and a hint of pineapple and sweet malts, absolutely amazing smell to this beer!
T: Blown away in this category! In the beginning you get a wonderful blend of spice and pine, which transitions to an amazing blend of spice and tropical fruits, and then finishes with spice, tropical fruits, pine, pineapple, and some bitterness. Every flavor in this beer is so perfectly balanced and you get so much of every flavor, and this beer tastes truly incredible!
M: Perfect execution here, crisp, light refreshing, leaves your mouth a little dry which leaves you craving it more and more!
O: This is an incredible beer, easily hits number 2 on my top IPA’s list! You have to try this beer!
