With the name "Velocihoptor" I would expect more....
For starters this thing was a gusher,over carbonated may be an understatement.
Had some oxidation going,maybe the start of an infection.Slight fruity off flovar

The beer poured a golden amber with a huge fluffy white head. I detected tropical fruit with citrus notes in the aroma with some slight floral hops as well. The taste starts with a huge juicy tropical citrus hop bitterness that take over your palate then transforms into a fruity floral bitterness that coats your tongue. The Velocihoptor is a very well balance IPA that takes you on a perfect hop journey and ends with a nice dry finish.

Appearance: Murky amber glass holds a thin white cover that doesn't give much lace.

Smell: Lightly leafy hop, earthy hop, but still American some how. A good bready base gives a fresh and inviting smell.

Taste: A lighter IPA in terms of both hops and punch, but goes a bit oily and shows some backbone. Still ends up being a strong APA, but refreshing and clean.

Mouthfeel: Medium light body, mild carbonation, bit oily in the finish.

Overall: A refreshing interesting mix of hops that gives a great flavor at a milder pace. Good session, good growler fill.
