Pale straw color with decent foam and lacing. Smells very fruity, bananas, mangos, peaches. Not very bitter, smooth fruity hops, with fairly dry finnish. Very drinkable, but not the best IPA ever.

Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tropical notes with some citrusy and bitter notes is quiet nice. Taste is a good mix of tropical notes with some citrusy notes and light bitter notes with not as much residual sugar as you can find in the juicy IPA floating around. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid IPA and great use of lesser known hops.

Cloudy golden beer with a 1-finger thin white head and some carbonation.

The smell reminds me of a fruit punch, lots of fruits and you can smell the bitterness.

In the mouth it is really bitter, maybe a little less fruity than what the smell leaded to believe. Still pretty good, also pretty resinous flavor.

A:
Pours a hazy chamomile tea color with a couple fingers of compact white head that slips down to a film. Speckled lacing. (3.75)

S:
Hay and lime zest, soap. (3.5)

T:
Hop tea and lemongrass. (3.5)

M:
Thinnish with faint carbonation, slight astringent twang and a fruity finish. (3.75)

O:
Pretty decent, but far from the best of these. It is drinkable but is really missing something to make it pop a little bit.
Okay looking with the rest of it just being like some sort of lightly carbonated husky hop tea.
Not overtly bad, but it could definitely use some oomph.

A-Bright and hazy straw yellow, NEIPA-look, with a white head that lingers strong
S-Aromas similar to witbier or sour with an acidic layer thThere is also a musty character.
M-Carbonation is high and mouth feel is medium.
T-Subtle sweetness at the forefront with a nice balance of acidity and Nello bitterness reminiscent of lemon rind.
O- this is really nice and refreshing IPA, I find it more on the Belgian wit beer type style and range, but worth a try.
