Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy amber color capped by a meringue of a head that leaves plenty of splashy lacing

Smell: Floral and fruity, with sugary citrus and tropical fruit aromatics

Taste: A hint of sugary malt and then the hops dominate, bringing pineapple and ruby red grapefruit tones; there is a hint of melon but this is all about the lively hop flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A great West Coast style IPA; this brewery knows their way around the hop farm

Not as hoppy as I like. Lower on the IBU scale.

Bottle shared in two snifters.
Fantastic hoppy nose with fruity and pine notes. Golden color. Head could be a bit larger but the lacing left is nice. Great carbonation. Light mouthfeel that is sticky sweet and then dries out to resinous pine. Fantatic beer overall. Would love to access to this on a regular basis. Better than Hop Drop and Roll but no Pliny or Heady.

A: Rich, golden body. White pillowy head. Slick lacing.
S: Hop, grapefruit, and pine.
T: Medium bitterness. Balanced hop, grapefruit, pine and sweetness.
M: Crisp, medium carbonation, and dry. No mouthful of dense carbonation which I have learned to love.
O: A nice tasting IPA for those hot summer days. Balanced flavor, nothing overpowering, everything is in harmony. For me, this is an excellent session IPA.
