Best by Feb.
Poured into a tall tulip glass revealing a somewhat clear honey yellow body with a pure white head that was big and fluffy that recedes down to a nice thin cap.
The smell on this is why I like to drink IPA’s. On the pour the aroma was jumping out at me with this big fruitiness. Upon further investigation I fell in love with the smell. It is packed with fruit: orange, grapefruit, mango, guava and floral notes. Lots of sweet smelling orange for the most part.
The flavor brings more straight up orange and grapefruit. There is also an added piney/earthiness to the taste that doesn't really show up in the aroma. There is a pop of the more floral and tropical fruity hops in there. A little sweet.
Medium bodied and with being lightly carbonated it drinks down so smooth. Dry.
It is super easy to drink wonderfully smelling lightly bitter IPA. I’m jealous of you dudes that can get this regularly. This is a good'un.

Poured a honey color in a Spiegalgau glass with a 1 finger head. Slightly lighter color than most IPAs I have tasted. Carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass.
The aroma is not strong-citrus and tropical fruit.
The mouth feel is very carbonated.
The taste is citrus and tropical fruit.
The finish is wonderful. This is a hop bomb. Very spicy, slightly bitter, and very, very hoppy. One of the hoppiest beers I have tasted to date.
Overall, a solid IPA. The citrus is not prominent, but the hoppiness wins the day.
Best tasted close to 50°F.
