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

Color is perhaps the lightest I've ever seen in an IPA. If not for the cloudiness and the head, you might think like is a macro lager! The aroma is kind of funky. Off putting, actually. However, that funkiness isn't in the flavor. There is a fruitiness to it, but not quite like the citrus flavors from most hops. Mellow for an IPA, but I like it. Sneaky ABV at 7.2%
Gotta love the uniqueness. Bonus points just for that!

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.
