4.13/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear yellow with a two-and-a-half-finger, white, foamy, creamy head that lasted more than a few minutes. Great lacing.

S: Strong citrus aromas. Grapefruit and a bit of pine.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and solid hop bitterness. Matches the nose.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth.

O: The only reason I'm giving this a 4 than a 4.5 is that the carbonation was a bit flat. The mouthfeel just wasn't quite crisp enough for me. Nevertheless, this is a really good IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy orange color, body is very pretty but a pretty mediocre half inch head.

Smells great--bright orange citrus, pineapple, maybe some mango or grapefruit.

Taste starts with sweet fruity peach, fades to floral notes and some spicy hops, then the orange and other citrus that dominated the nose. Yummy.

Mouthfeel is slightly watery at first, after a couple seconds in mouth the carbonation builds up and it's fine. Body is thick enough, pretty drinkable, just needs slightly fuller carbonation.

Great IPA, good balance.

8.2/10

Been Wanting to try this for a while now. Thanks Randy!

This has a very nice aroma, with smells of grapefruit & orange.
It pours a hazy golden-orange with an inviting white head of more than a finger, which stuck around for a short curtain call.
A real clean citrus hop start, yeilding to a resiny pine middle and a slight sweetness.
Good dry finish
Overall, I am enjoying this quite a bit and can't find much wrong here.

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

Poured into a red wine glass. Hazy, amber/orange color with a lasting, creamy white head. Good lacing on the glass.

The aroma packs a punch, I could smell it from about a foot away as soon as I poured it without even holding my nose up to it. Resiny hops with pungent mango and notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and grass. Light biscuit and hay, but it's pushed to the background by the hops.

Medium to full bodied with a thick texture and chalky finish. The mango really dominates the flavor.

Overall, this is an excellent IPA with a big aroma and long-lasting flavor. I have a feeling this is going to find its way into my fridge very often. Worth seeking out.
