3.94/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured on draft at the brewery.

Pours a cloudy deep gold color with a finger of white head. The head has good retention and solid lacing. Settles into a thin ring.

The aroma brings citrus notes up front, namely tangerines and grapefruit. There's a hint of pineapple and mango with a piney back.

The flavor follows the nose: Tangerines, orange, and grapefruit up front, followed by some pineapples and fresh mangoes. Finishes piney with a subtle malt presence.

The feel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Relatively crisp with a dry finish.

Overall, a very good yet straightforward IPA. It's not bursting with flavor or aroma but it's still exceptionally drinkable and accessable. Wouldn't mind seeing this as a regular release.

Picked up a pint sized bottle from the brewery on 8-31-19 for $6.00. Bottled on 8-29-19; consumed on 9-4-19.

Beer poured golden orange with a very nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose has a nice touch of dankness from the pine and orange combination.

Taste is very tropical forward. Orange and mango prevail over a lighter pale and caramel malt base. Finish is a nice touch of pine bitterness; 6/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and very refreshing.

Overall a very nice ipa that is not to far off from being sessionable!
