Delicious quality IPA. Bold taste with a clean finish. Great golden color and an intoxicating smell. Sneaky 7.5% alcohol.

Picked up in variety pack. 12 bottle poured into Stein mug. Orange color with thick foamy head. Smell is mango, pine and citrus but a little weak. Taste is fresh pine and orange/mango. Easy feel, not too carbonated. Really good beer that is so close to being great! Cheers!

Look- Great frothy head. Cloudy, orange, honey amber color.

Nose-Small hints of aromatics, some biscuits. Somewhat bland smelling compared to some other pale ales.

Taste- Definite early grapefruit. Very sweet. Sweet candied fruit-like. Some mild-moderate hoppiness but overpowered by the sweetness throughout most of the sip. Aftertaste much more bitter than the initial sip.

Feel- Head stayed throughout most of the glass, so the contrast of the foam and liquid was pleasing. Fine carbonation. Relatively thin, aqueous, and non-resiny despite a decent level of carbonation. I liked this as it felt relatively full without being like syrup.

Overall- Probably a great pale ale for those who like sweet drinks/beers. Good for after a strong after dinner drink. Worth a purchase.

a little bigger and a little sweeter than most, i liked this one a lot, especially in a fall context. it has a little bit of a copper color to it, a hint at the kiss of sweeter crystal malt that rounds it out, but the hops profile is what makes this special. through the thick white head i get a grapefruit and passionfruit aromatic, very bright and summery, very pungent, and very distinct. i was surprised how aggressive and radiant all of that is, because you dont usually see these types of beers in maltier ipas. its a neat combination here through, aided by the fact that the hops retain quite a bit of their oils, which marries up with the grain sugar pleasantly. i appreciate all the body and alcohol to this, not sure how sessionable it is, but its capacity to refresh and warm at the same time is useful this time of year in minnesota. just such a bold and interesting hop profile, a nice companion to a glass of decent rye whiskey as well. not sustainable, but delicious. ive liked all the beer i have had from these guys so far. i feel like this one would do well in colorado, sort of has the right vibe to it...
