Poured into an IPA glass from a 22 oz bomber.

Color is clear gold with a massive white head. Great retention and lacing. Smell is tropical and fruity. Very nice. Flavor is mango, pineapple with some grapefruit rind. Malt is hidden, but balanced. Finish is crisp and bitter. Body is medium with a ample carbonation.

Overall, a fantastic IPA with a great hop profile.

Pours a medium copper color with a single-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves some spotty lacing.
The aroma is pine and grapefruit and orange pith with, perhaps a hint of toffee beneath.
Taste is citrus up front with pine following a a bit of sweetness followed by a long-lasting and drying bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky.
Overall, really tasty IPA.

Appearance: Bright and clear gold. Great cloudy white head with great retention and lacing.

Nose: Grapefruit, citrus, and tangerine. Nice herbs and pine.

Taste: Great malt and hop balance. Malt lingers around and coats your tongue. Initial crisp and dry, fresh piney hops.

Notes: Just exactly what you want in an IPA.
