3.75/5 rDev -3.4%
This IPA has most of my favorite hops. It has a nice basic IPA touch. Some nice floral notes, but very heavy malt character over the hops. Some tropical fruit notes. Very little if any pine or grapefruit. Drinkable IPA, but lacking that extra something to take it up. Love a lot of their IPA's, but their year round IPA lacks character.

12oz to a pint glass, bottled 4/24
Pours a very clear light golden orange with a finger and a half of foam. Retention didn't last too long, down to a half finger 30 seconds later, high carbonation stemming from all over the place, okay lacing
Smells pretty hoppy off the top. Earthy and floral citrus; grapefruit and mandarin with hints of lemon, finishes with a nice aroma of pine. Sweet bready malts finish with a touch of a little alcohol on the end
Taste is pretty close with the nose, strong grapefruit, mandarin, and pine. A sweet caramel malt making up the backbone with a bit of booze
Feel is moderate body and bitterness, very crisp dry body. Alcohol hidden well, very drinkable
Overall solid ipa. Stoked to have Drakes in Nevada now
