4.21/5 rDev -1.4%
Pours a hazy, pale orange color body with a thick, white, three finger head. Light streams of carbonation and plenty of lacing.
A pleasant medley of floral and tropical fruit stimulate the nose. Very sweet citrus notes; pineapple, mango, and starfruit. Light caramel malt.
Sweetness hits you like a ton of bricks, it's that potent. Luckily, the bitter bite is swift and unforgiving, lending earthy balance. Pineapple, tangerine, and mango rock the flavor profile upfront while grass and herb on the back. Clean finish with only the faintest hint of alcohol.
Fairly light body for the style. Smooth and easy to drink with a sweet finish.
A fantastic IPA that is beautifully balanced, easy to drink despite a rather heavy bite, and 100% enjoyable. Well worth your a slot in your fridge!

4.05/5 rDev -5.2%
Appearance: Pours a clear goldenrod color with a frothy head that leaves a nice dotty pattern behind
Smell: Lemon, pineapple and grassy tones
Taste: A touch bready, with the hops quickly taking over; the pineapple is slightly rotting, with lemon, passion fruit and a grassy, Germanic tone, as well; there is also a vinous, white wine character, as the finish is dominated by the unusual Antipodean hops
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A surprisingly austere Germanic influence and a vinous element make this a rather unique IPA
