Wowiee zowieee. This reminds Raul when he snuck off with the #1 jock's girlfriend in the 8th grade - Raul's first frenchie kiss and black eye were totally worth it!

I mean, this thing is plumb, hound dog with double blood shot eyes crazy! Taste is poppin' and the mouthfeel blows up like a fresh harvested Incan berry. (Trust me, my children.)

Although Raul sighs in frustration that this bad sucker is brewed 3000 miles away, at the moment he still smiles that one is right in front of him and he is content to be.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: A bright, golden yellow with a finger head that slowly dissipates to a thin film. Good, thick lacing.

Smell: (Duh) Floral, some hoppy bitter bite, a little alcohol, and a bit of candied sweetness.

Taste: Floral hopps, the alcohol again, a pleasant bitter bite, and the sweet candied tastes come through right alongside the hopps.

Mouthfeel: Much fluffier than I expected but other than that it follows the classic IPA feel.

Overall: This is good at a good price point and is definitely worth trying.

A - A nice, clear light orange/gold color with a creamy white head that lingers.

S - Tropical fruits dominate the aroma followed by a subtle dank character. One of the most appealing aromas on an IPA.

T - Sweet, citrusy, juicy! You can taste everything that is in the aroma. You can definitely taste the Citra and Simcoe hops.

M - Smooth, medium body.

O - A superb, drinkable IPA!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a light orangey gold color. White fluffy head. Some lacing is left. Fairly pale, I like the looks of this.

Smells of orange zest, lemon, tropical fruits. Malt is subtle, hops are on display.

Taste of lemon on the front end. Bitter tropical fruit on the finish.

Nice light body makes for some easy drinking. I would not have guessed this is 7.5 percent.

Really glad to get a chance to try this. My first bottle went down incredibly fast and easy. Verges on the "dangerously drinkable" category.
