Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy copper-amber color with some floaties and with a super intense head of white foam that prevents the beer from being poured in a single pour. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to where more beer could be poured into the glass. Eventually all the head faded away to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is bready with mostly a citrus hop aroma of grapefruit. Along with these smells are some floral hops and a dank pine hop smell as well as a little bit of a tropical fruit sweetness.

Taste – The taste begins with a very lightly toasted and bready flavor with a moderate showing of tropical fruit sweetness of tangerine and a little bit of mango. There is a bitter grapefruit hop upfront that creates a hop base for the brew. While there are tropical fruits upfront, they later fade being replaced by a little bit of a caramel flavor. Along with the change in sweeter flavors also comes an increase in the hop with the grapefruit getting accompanied a stronger some pine and a bit of an herbal taste. A little bit of tangerine and mango come back to the tongue at the end, with the mix of flavors leaving a somewhat dank hopped, but still malty and lightly fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the style a little lower carbonation may have been better for the dank hop and bready tastes, but overall the feel was pretty decent.

Overall – An alright IPA that is slightly more dank and resinous in hop profile. It was alright, but nothing too special overall, with me likely taking other IPA’s of comparable price and abv. over this one.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a misty but vibrant golden/amber color. Beautiful color, really. There's a lot of of frothy khaki head that leaves some lacing along the side, and a little carbonation.

S: Hops and citrus. That's about it. Nice and strong and pretty simple and standard. If I use my imagination, I might be getting some coriander or strawberry, but I basically have to be drowning in it to come up with those aromas.

T: Hops and citrus again. It's not flat by any means. It is bright and vibrant. Once again, I don't know if I'm getting some other flavors (maybe there's some earthiness), but it is pretty good.

M: Maybe a little too much carbonation and dryness at the end, but it is rich and full and gives a robust quality to a robust style.

O: It is standard, but this is a very well done IPA that is vibrant enough to make it worth your while.
