Notes/Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

Poured from a 32 oz growler into a standard pint glass. Growler was filled on 5/31/14, and filled very well. Reviewed 24 hours after fill. Appears a clear golden color, with touches of orange throughout. Has an off-white head, that leaves minimal lacing.

Nose is full of tropical fruits, with mango and pineapple sticking out, as well as a good citrus presence, with grapefruit and orange notes. There's a touch of caramel sweetness in the aroma as well. The taste follows this, with the topical fruits and citrus coming through up front, followed by a touch of the malt sweetness, which is then quickly overtaken by the citrus in the finish, with a lasting bitterness, that goes down nicely.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with average carbonation levels. Finish is right where it should be, not too dry, and makes it easy to drink. Overall, this is another great IPA coming out of Ohio. The tropical fruits and citrus are the stars here, and it is very enjoyable.

A-Pours a hazy orange with a well formed white head. The head really fills up my sample cup.

S-Quite hoppy. Lots of peach and citrus with a dried grass aroma as well. The aroma is right in my wheelhouse. I'm excited to try.

T-Again, it's just as advertised. A big, bitter hop wave with tons of different fruity flavors. Peaches, grapefruit and mango. Dried grass and pine. Soft, pale maltiness.

M-Bitter, dry and well carbonated. Medium bodied. Lingering flavor.

O-A hop-bomb that I would absolutely love to see available in my neck of the woods. Assertive and very yummy.

Truth is a nice IPA, one that focuses a lot on tropical flavors and citrus. it pours a shade darker than straw, rather clear with very little head retention. smells of tropical fruits. the smell is somewhat subdued. when tasted, the sweet tropical notes hit the front of the tongue. clean malts support but do not come into the forefront. bitter piney hops wash the middle of the tongue with a dry, crisp finish.

overall, this is a decent IPA with pleasant tropical flavors. my biggest complaint is the thin mouthfeel and subdued aroma. bolstering those areas would likely make for a great beer!
