12 oz. bottle pours a orange/yellow hue with a white head. Sweet, perfumy hop smell. Medium to full bodied with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Has a grainy, yeasty malt taste with sweet mangos and bananas. Has a perfumy hop taste to finish.
This brew has a big herbal flowery taste /smell thing goin' on.
An IPA with lots of flavor and no hype.
Serving type: bottle

No fru-fru review here. Had this beer on tap in an ice-cold glass. Paired outstanding to Kobe-beef sliders with blue cheese. I can think of no other type of beer other than an IPA that can stand up to beef and blue cheese.
Beer was deep gold and hoppy with a smooth swallow and long-lasting bitter-hop aftertaste, even through the blue cheese. Carbonation was mild in the mouth and after swallowing. A seriously full-bodied IPA that will leave a smile on the face of any Hop-Head. Definitely a DFB - Damned Fine Beer.
Serving type: on-tap
