4.06/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a clear gold with a billowing white head that lingers for some time.
S: Aromas of tangerine, navel orange, pineapple, mango, guava, herbs, grass, and biscuit are most pronounced on the nose.
T: Notes of tangerine, navel orange, lime, lemon, pineapple, mango, guava, grass, and herbs are balance by delicate notes of crackers, biscuits, minerals, and caramel. The finish is bitter, fruity, and mildly resinous with tangerine, navel orange, pineapple, and guava flavors giving way to subtle biscuit and caramel.
M: Medium-bodied and somewhat sticky in the mouth. Carbonation is initially a bit prickly, but quickly softens. Alcohol is very well hidden.
O: A nice IPA. This makes me wish more American brewers would experiment with Australasian hop varietals more frequently.

*12 oz. bottle* Look: Sunset orange body, 1 finger white head.
Smell: Very citrus (Oranges, lemon peel), toasted cracker sweetness, bit of mango and a touch of tropical flowers.
Taste: Mango, oranges, grapefruit, flowers, earthy leafiness, papaya, very solid malt backbone, semi dry mild bitter finish.
Feel: Medium smooth body, mediocre carbonation.
Overall: This is solid and also very tasty. I’m glad I tried this ale. This is balanced and enough hop flavor that it lands on what could be DIPA status. The bitter factor isn’t offensive. If you like exotic fruits/flower flavors in your beer, this is a go to. This beer is recommended.

Had on tap at Magnolia's in Purcellville
A - Clear gold body with a sticky white head that clings to the glass. Moderate carbonation rising from the bottom
S - Very citrusy and a nice break from the pine-forward IPA's I've been having. Canned pineapple with a good bit of grapefruit. Slightly candy sweet in the nose
T&M - Great burst of citrus hops right off the bat that is neither overly bitter nor sweet. I taste more grapefruit than pineapple but both are evident. A little mango aftertaste once swallowed. Very different flavors from most IPA's I've had which I really appreciate. I absolutely HATE grapefruit but evidently I love the taste in my beer. Very smooth mouthfeel with less than moderate carbonation. Goes down very easy. Slightly sweet taste without making the mouthfeel sticky.
O - really enjoyed trying this one. WIll buy a sixer if I see it around. Would like to compare vs having on tap.
Serving type: on-tap
