Poured from a bottle; into a tumbler.
Appearance - gold, cloudy; thin, foamy head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell - pineapple and mango, faint juicy fruit.
Taste - not bad, but falls short of the nose, lacking with a strong pineapple and mango presence. A bit too boozy after it sits.
Feel - this goes from an enjoyable, drinkable IPA, to a weird after taste, funky IPA.
Overall - I'm in and out on this one...which means I'm out. Too funky when it's all said and done.

3.43/5  rDev -6.3%

Appearance is dark gold with a white head leaving nice lace.

Smell is a little caramel and citrus, didn't open up much.

Taste is earthy and stemmy hops, big bitterness. Some pine. A little nectarine peaks through the alpha acids, the sweetness a bit more prominent after my palate adjusts to the IBUs. Got some nice fresh hop resins as it warmed.

Mouthfeel is very oily, dry, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, a fiercely bitter IPA. I prefer more hop flavors though.

Review from notes

Appearance: Nice golden color, good white head

Smell: Very citrusy and sweet, grapefruit and lemony hops

Taste: Grapefruit, hoppy bitterness, biscuity malt, and some earthiness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Good but not outstanding. A good standby at Karl Strauss
